very good movie with excellent performances from viggo and ed harris but the ending SUCKED. but the good of the movie outweighed the horrible ending; last scene so i'll get it. i just wish i couldve seen appaloosa starring the same actors but its already out of theatres where i live. hopefully it will be announced for blu-ray soon, ed harris is one of the best actors of today.
