Just watched ' Sweet Vengeance ' and loved it , this movie was a blind buy for me as I had not heard of it until I seen it for sale here on Amazon , it was the cast and the story that really attracted me to it ,and also the fact that I love a good western , Ed Harris and Jason Issacs are always good value for money ,and they do not disappoint in this film ,they both give the stand-out performances - one as a Mad Preacher type, and the other as an Eccentric Sheriff type, the movie was shot in Santa Fe ,and the sprawling scenery is truly stunning

The story goes a bit like this ,Issac's ,Jones and Harris's characters all clash when some people go missing on land owned by Issac's ' Joshia ' The Prophets character ,Harris is a sheriff who has been trailing two men for miles,but they suddenly disappear after they go onto Joshias land ,Jone's husband has disappeared near that land too ,so sheriff and wife in there own ways are trying to find out exactly what has happened to them ,the movie gets quite violent in places as the pieces of the puzzle starts to get put together ,and some revenge gets dished out to those who deserve it

I really loved this western ,its well acted,well shot ,and well produced , and if you are a western fan then I am sure you will not be disappointed ,cos it has all the ingredients of a good western = great bad guy ,great good guys ,and great shootings ,it also has some great humour too-mostly provided by Ed Harris's character

The DvD only has one extra ,and thats a ' The Making Off 'featurette / about 25mins long ,where all the main cast talk about the film

Its rare these days to find a new film as good as this without knowing anything about it before hand, easily the best western i've seen in many years its a shame they don't make more of them instead of all theses (now generic)kiddy superhero films.

The 3 leads are all amazing(yes even January Jones) stunningly shot and very well written.

highly recommended from me.

Ed Harris, as usual is superb in this interesting revenge western, the cinematography is good and the villain is a menacing psycho with a god complex, some scenes stick in the mind - like Harris drinking wine and riling up his host, just a little unbelievable towards the end - but well worth watching for western fans.

I didn't have high expectations, with yet another straight to DVD Western coming along. The cast of eminently watchable actors (Ed Harris, Jason Isaac) persuaded me though, and I'm glad I was. This is a thoroughly surprising movie, never a pure Western and often pushing genre boundaries. But after a slow start, it really works, thanks in large part to an intermittently witty script and of course the performances.
January Jones plays a woman who endures a tragic loss, which tips her over the edge to drastic action against the source of her tragedy - the self proclaimed Prophet Josiah, played by Jason Isaacs. His delusional, dangerous preacher is also responsible for another couple of murders, which brings an eccentric (putting it mildly) sheriff (Ed Harris) to come investigating. Harris is great value, genuinely unnerving in his eccentricity, skirting the line of cartoonishness while never going over it, and never letting it blunt the characters hard edge. You feel some sympathy when Isaacs tells him `You're a really queer man', to which the sheriff replies "Unusual. I prefer unusual.". However for me it is Jason Isaacs who steals the show with his portrayal of a character who could easily have been a wafer thin characterization, but becomes fully fleshed out and endlessly watchable in Isaacs hands. All of these means that the core of the movie - January Jones revenge driven widow, taking matters into her own hands, never quite draws us in as it should - we are more voyeurs to her story than engaged in understanding or debating her motives and actions.
Beyond the characters, the cinematography belies its straight to DVD origins - as it should, with Brad Shield on lensing duties (Moulin Rouge, Star Wars Episode 2, The Avengers).

The cast all do their jobs really well Ed Harris playing the intelligent but a little crazy sheriff tracking down 2 Brothers who the Governor wants returned,January Jones as the wife whose husband & dog are removed from her life by Jason Isaacs Preacher who is a psycho God hearing self proclaimed Prophet & preacher (cult leader) who is a multiple murderer who has a small group of men working for him on his sheep ranch.
I liked this movie because it deals with Vengeance in the cold calculated but abrupt way it is often taken which many movies will drag out to beyond boring before anything happens & really is on a par with Unforgiven rather than Carrie etc.
The most critical comment on here says it gets unbelievable to the end but I would ignore that as she is not a gun slinger but uses stealth & trickery to kill her prey which I find not unbelievable in the least.
The film is not a "Girl Power" movie which would be a disservice to it but rather a story of what happens when you misjudge someone & push them too far.
Well worth a buy & indeed I now have but also you can see it on Amazon Prime.
