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.

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.

It's late 19th century in the arid desert of New Mexico. Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs) declares himself a deeply religious man, a servant of God, but when he comes across two brothers, Levi and Jacob (Noah & Logan Miller) on his 'Holy Land', sheltering from the parching sun under what little shade there is from a dead tree, cooking an animal they caught on the land, he accuses them of trespassing and stealing - and he sends them on their way, to Heaven or Hell. Merciless, covetous, and hypocritical, Prophet Josiah didn't care to listen to the men's explanations about their miserable mishaps on the hard journey to their waiting and wealthy family in Santa Fe. Prophet Josiah doesn't care either for the Hispanic farmer (Eduardo Noriega) with his beautiful but deceivingly resourceful wife, Sarah Ramírez (January Jones) and cared much less about their dog. But he starts to care when a white-haired stranger, an odd kind of man who seems to fear nothing and no one, comes to town. The stranger declares himself the new town Sheriff (Ed Harris) and says he's looking for two men travelling that way, relatives of the state Governor.

The above is the correct story and contains no spoilers.

Sweetwater (2013) is possibly one of the best westerns that I have ever seen. It ticks lots of boxes, to coin a cliché. Not only is it a western (thankfully devoid for once of whooping Indians and sleazy carpetbaggers) but it's also a detective thriller, a revenge thriller, and the sort of movie that even non-lovers of westerns might like. There's a wonderful atmosphere of menace and confrontation as Prophet Josiah and Sheriff Jackson become enemies, not to mention Sarah getting caught up in it all in a big way.

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.
