Director Lawrence Kasdan's 1985 Western isn't highly original but does offer a rollicking good time. The writer of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "The Empire Strikes Back," Kasdan is adept at constructing a perfect story blueprint and then adding just enough accompanying bells and whistles. The panoramic cinematography and booming backing score are well-served by the pristine Blu-ray transfer and the film itself is one of the few from the '80s that doesn't look dated.
