The first western sniper story I've ever seen.

by Yui Daoren on 2/9/2002

<FONT size="+1">This is a fun film</FONT> that lets you feel feirce indignation, then a great swell of vengful joy as Quigley, his unlikely sidekick Crazy Cora, and the Aboriginals of Australia triumph over one truly evil character.<BR> <BR> <I>Tom Selleck</I> does a good job as Quigley, his quiet and confident demeanor exactly what one would want in a western fantasy hero - and that handheld artilery peice he uses may be hard to swallow, but it makes for a unique movie.<BR> <BR> <I>Laura San Giacomo</I> is a riot in this film. Her crazed character is played on the fine line between quietly destroyed and ragingly insane - her acting was easy for me to belive and her character was at once fun and profoundly sad.<BR> <BR> Of course, <I>Alan Rickman</I> provides a fantastic evil character for us to instantly loath.<BR> <BR> If nothing else, the scenery of wild Australia makes this movie worth watching. The land is beautiful, and the camera is used to full advantage in showing it off. Read More

Editors Note
Note Quigley (Tom Selleck) is an American sharpshooter imported from the heat and dust of the Old West to the heat and dust of the Australian outback to fight off rustlers. Upon arrival, he learns he's been hired to kill Aborigines by a heartless rancher, which disgusts Quigley, so he runs off into the bush with a woman he's rescued. The local aboriginals discover him, and help him and the woman survive in the outback long enough for Quigley to return and seek vengeance.
Plot Summary
Summary Quigley, a stoic American sharpshooter from the old West, travels to the untamed wilderness of the Australian outback after answering an advertisement calling for a man who's handy with a rifle. Once in Australia, the Yank discovers that he's been hired by a despicable landowner named Marston who (with the government's support) wants him to eradicate the area's aboriginal population. Furious, Quigley throws the wealthy despot out a nearby window -- and thus begins a heated vendetta by the spurned Marston to exact deadly revenge against the principled outsider.
