Plot:

Sierra Nevada in the late 19th century: Isaac LeMay (Sam Worthington) is a murderous outlaw cursed by a terrible prophecy, hunting down his offspring to prevent his own murder before targeting his son Cal (Colson Baker). With bounty hunters as well as the enigmatic U.S. officer Solomon (Thomas Jane) on their tail, all are set on a collision course…

Reviews:

“The characters are poorly executed (little dialogue), and the way the director films key scenes gives the impression that he has never seen a western in his life (Rio Bravo, at random …). Formally, however, this manhunt impresses. We shudder in front of the spectacle of snow-capped mountains and icy landscapes. Heather Graham […], rapper Machine Gun Kelly […] and Thomas Jane […] undeniably add presence…” Another Film Another Planet [translated from French]
