      The Quick and the Dead stars Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, and Gary Sinise. A must see western principally due to the nonstop action and great music. Over the years the quality that makes a western standout has always been memorable music and this movie is a classic example.

      It also has an Italian Style cinema as there are

      many closeups of faces. The story is simple…an elimination fast draw shootout contest, but there are interesting themes intermingled.

      Sharon Stone is Lady and she wants to avenge her father’s death by killing Gene Hackman. Another twist is that the oppressed townspeople hired a mystery shooter to also kill Hackman.

      Hackman’s son is called the Kid and he wants to beat his father ...

      • to earn his respect. Finally, Crowe as Cort was once in Hackman’s gang but has since turned to the preacher profession.

        He is forced by Hackman to fight in the contest because he wants a real challenge. There are a few quotes that are powerful, such as, “You are looking at me and thinking we have nothing in common, but you are wrong…we

        are both winners.

        ” “People Need me…I bring a sense of order to their lives. ” “I will kill you if I have to ride to Hell to do it.

        ” There are also several colorful characters such as Ace Hanlon, Scars, Sgt. Cantrell, Indian, Child Molester, Swedish Champion, Town Doctor who tells the hidden story, and Blind Boy.

        You will become involved in this shootout as if you were there.
