Mountain Man outlaw Jedediah (Todd A. Robinson) asked Mary O'Malley the right question when he asked her how she knew where she was going. Because by any reasonable standard, the viewer can't possibly know how she expected to find the man who killed her husband. Her plan to follow the only clear path through the woods made no sense at all, but for the sake of the story, you had to take it on faith she was moving in the right direction.
There's a whole slew of these recent Westerns out there that are just terribly written and acted, but with such stunning scenery that it somewhat makes up for the story. Only somewhat though. And there's also a little of the old bait and switch with the name of Lance Henriksen in the credits for this one, who's fourth billed but only appears for about five minutes in an opening segment. He did the same favor for 2019's "Eminence Hill", though that was a considerably better Western, but not by much.
At least the crazy old coot Marrow (Kevin Makely) livens things up a bit near the finale with his cannibal gig. He reminded me a lot of Ray McKinnon in the HBO series "Deadwood" in which his character, Reverend Smith, had a fatal bout of epilepsy, waxing philosophically about all manner of things before he went belly up. At first glance, that's who I thought it was in this picture.
Let me, along with just about every other reviewer here, try to ward you off from this picture as it doesn't have a compelling story to tell, and there's no other reason to check it out. Unless you like gorgeous, scenic cinematography.
