Just watched this movie tonight, together with my wife and son. It is a pleasure to sit in the cinema with pop corn at hand to enjoy the two-and-a-half-hour movie.
To be honest, the plot is a little bit too simple. Takes me less than half-hour to figure out who the baddie is. Still, I like it, esp. the part of white horse running on top of the train with a background of symphonic music. Is this something borrowed from Apocalypse Now (fleet of choppers cruising in the background of Wagner)
For the plot, it looks like to be a mix of Once Upon a Time in the West 1968 (the train, and the beautiful widow. Zorro 1975 (man with eye-mask on horseback. Dance with Wolves (the story of Indians, and their conflict with whites.
Just one question: In the end, why Tondo asked John Reid to stop waving his hat in hi-ho silver.
