Overview

Sharon Stone stars as Ellen, a beautiful gunslinger with a cloudy past. She arrives in the town of Redemption with a bone to pick, namely with one John Herod (Gene Hackman, BONNIE AND CLYDE, THE ROYAL TENNENBAUMS), with whom she shares a shady history. Ellen signs up for the annual quick-draw contest, which awards $230,000 to the winner, but her real motivation is revenge. Raimi incorporates beautiful photography and camerawork, and surprising new twists to the familiar spaghetti Western tropes, breathing new life into the genre.
A young woman seeks to avenge her father's death at the annual gunfighter's tournament in the ghostly town called Redemption, where an outlaw named Herod rules with a brutal, calculating precision. The film is set on the town's one dusty street as one fighter after another is fatally eliminated from the ranks until only two fighters remain: the young woman, and Herod, her father's killer.

New York Times 02-10-1995 "...Ms. Stone's presence nicely underscores the genre-bending tactics of Sam Raimi..."
USA Today 02-10-1995 "...Notably bizarre effects and superb surround-stereo..."
Entertainment Weekly 08-18-1995 "...Raimi's tasy homage to spaghetti-Western maestro Sergio Leone -- spiced with Raimi's offbeat humor -- goes down pretty easily..."
