Chris' Film Club: The Quick and the Dead

Our second Western Film this week is Sam Raimi's 'The Quick and the Dead'.

A mysterious woman gunslinger, Ellen (Sharon Stone), saunters into the town of Redemption looking for revenge on the man who killed her father, the town Mayor Herod (Gene Hackman). Herod is in the midst of organizing a quick-draw tournament. The lady enters, joining a cast of miscreants and outlaws for a brutal competition in which the loser dies. Among the competitors is "The Kid" (Leonardo DiCaprio), an upstart who has his own score to settle.
