    The "West" in another part of the World

    Tom Selleck gives another fine performance as a unique western character named Matthew Quigley in "Quigley Down Under". This movie has Selleck's character traveling to Australia to take a job based on his skills as a marksman. Laura San Giancomo gives a very good performance as well as a "Crazy" acting lady, named Cora, who just so happens to be traveling on the same wagon to bring Quigley to meet his new employer, as she has been selected to work for the same rancher. Without giving too much away, I'll simply say that Quigley and Cora become much better acquainted as the story goes forward. If all this sounds unique, it is, Selleck offers a solid performance in an environment one dosen't normally think about when contemplating the life of a cowboy blessed with an incredible skill as a marksman. This film gets off to an action packed start and moves fast as Quigley finds himself in a fist-fight early on with the very folks sent to pick him up upon arrival in country--if this has sparked your interest, get the movie and enjoy the ride. This film demonstrates Tom Selleck's abilities to portray a solid frontier cowboy in any environment and I believe he is one of the few actors of our time who can ensure the "Western" movie remains in vogue--I hope he will get another opportunity to play in a good cowboy film.

    Australian Outback meets American Resiliency

    Tom Selleck is best as the traditional Western hero, fighting on his bronco against a malicious enemy, played wondrously by Rickman. He really is quite close to being our generation's John Wayne. Believe me, we need one. Laura San Giacamo plays the delightful character "crazy Cora." A great resolution. The evil Brit finds that the Americans can still whoop ass, even on their home turf.

    Watch it again and again

    Tom Selleck is the perfect cowboy, looking for the last remnants of the west in a country that is more wild and lawless than he ever imagined. His portrayal of Quigley is stunning, a true man's man with a sharp shooter's eye,that has to determine the moral fiber behind the situation he's in. Laura San Giacomo--fabulous! Is she just pretending, or is she really what she portrays herself to be to everyone in the outback.
    Great acting, beautiful scenery, wonderful tale and Alan Rickman is at his best bad guy ever.

    One of my favorites!

    Me and my 20-something sibs and husband, plus my dad, all love this movie. We consider it one of our ''classics.'' It's a great western-style plot with humor, action, romance and human interest. One of Tom Selleck's best. Will Quigley get the bad guy???
