Wikipedia says:

“In the Great Plains during 1880s, Texas Ranger David Kingston (Liam Hemsworth) is sent to an Old West frontier town Helena to investigate a series of murders and disappearances of local people. In the town, preacher Abraham Brant (Woody Harrelson) is keeping all the townsfolk in some kind of fearful grip.”

The DUEL 2016 Rotten Tomatoes review

“17%”!!!!??? Really!?
Well, I just watched the movie and it was pretty good. Interesting story – some good work by Harrelson and Hemsworth. Kept my interest throughout – and you really didn’t know what was going to happen. I’d give it a 65% or 70%. Not a Classic – but damn few movies are.

  1. Let’s see! I like Woody and Liam, so let’s see if there’s a story in there somewhere. Have you seen the new Magnificient 7 trailer and cast? What do you think?Coming out this fall!

    Hi Cindy !!
    Yup it’s got some Star Power for sure. But it was sent for limited distribution and put to CD at the outset. I guess pre-screening didn’t reveal a mainstream winner. ?? It doesn’t look like a outright Horror movie (LOL) so I’ll have a look at it soon.

  3. So, this is coming out soon, I guess. I’m adopting a “wait and see” attitude on this.

      Well .. fact is it came out on Limited Release and also straight to CD. Likely a pretty good rental. I fished it off the net and watched it last night … and I thought it was OK. Not a classic, but worth one watch – for a Western fan.
