Frequent television director David Von Ancken (Oz and The Shield) offers a thrilling meditation on the true nature of revenge with this post-Civil War era tale of a one man's quest to put his nemesis in the ground, and another man's struggle to survive at any cost. Deep in the snowy mountains of the American West, a lone man named Gideon (Pierce Brosnan) basks, lost in thought, in the warm glow of a small fire. When a shot suddenly rings out and a bullet whizzes just inches from his head, Gideon is suddenly pulled from his repose. His reaction is too slow, however, to save him from the impact of a second bullet fired immediately thereafter; a bullet that painfully lodges itself into the soft flesh of Gideon's tired shoulder. The man who fired these bullets is Colonel Morsman Carver (Liam Neeson), and Carver's goal is to hunt Gideon down like an animal and extract painful revenge for a past transgression that left Colonel Carver forever changed. From this point on, there will be no peace in either man's life as a harrowing game of kill-or-be-killed is played out against the backdrop of the awe-inspiring and deceptively treacherous wilderness where the unforgiving law of the land takes deadly precedence over the civility of modern society.

This film is okay and the acting was top-notch. Some scenes are like "rambo: first blood" others are pure historical montages, like the chinese building the railroad. An explanation as to why one wants to kill the other is shown, but changes in both characters--pre and post explanation--aren't extreme until the end of the film. This means between action scenes the film slows down. The slow build works well, but "the proposition" was too great of a film to make this one stand out. Angelica huston pretty much played the devil and was out of place. The film would have been better if some scenes were cut out, thereby allowing the film to flow better as a whole the soundtrack was a little weak too.
