Academy-Award® winning director Kevin Costner ("Dances with Wolves") helms this traditional Western tale of a way of life that is quickly disappearing. Boss Spearman (Duvall), Charley Waite (Costner), Mose Harrison (Benrubi) and "Button" (Luna) freegraze their cattle across the vast prairies of the West, sharing a friendship forged by a steadfast code of honor and living a life unencumbered by civilization. When their wayward herd forces them near the small town of Harmonville, the cowboys encounter a corrupt Sheriff (Russo) and kingpin rancher (Gambon) who govern the territory through fear, tyranny and violence.

Boss and Charley find themselves inextricably drawn towards the inevitable showdown as they are forced to defend the freedom and values of a lifestyle that is all too quickly vanishing. Amidst this turmoil, life suddenly takes an unexpected turn for loner Charley when he meets the beautiful and warm-spirited Sue Barlow (Bening), a woman who embraces both his heart and his soul. As these courageous men prepare for the decisive battle that looms, they are also forced to confront and conquer their own internal demons.

Academy-Award winners KEVIN COSTNER and ROBERT DUVALL star as Charlie Waite and Boss Spearman who, with their colleagues Mose and Button, are cowboys driving cattle on the Open Range, free-grazing outside of the law.

When Mose ends up badly beaten and arrested on trumped-up charges at a town where he has gone for supplies, Boss and Charlie discover a web of corruption centred around ruthless rancher, Denton Baxter (played with relish delight by MICHAEL GAMDON). Having built up the community, Baxter hates all drifters and free-grazers who enter his domain but is not averse to killing them and "acquiring" their cattle for his own. With Sheriff Poole (JAMES RUSSO) and gunman Butler (KIM COATES) on the payroll, Baxter begins a course of action which will lead to violence and death to the quiet streets of Harmonville.

Superbly directed by KOSTNER with great attention to authentic detail, OPEN RANGE is another of the modern wave of gritty and realistic Westerns which have emerged in recent years. He successfully avoids some of the clichés common with the genre.

For example, heavy rain turns the Harmonville streets into quagmires (unusual for a genre which usually depicts dusty roads) and the climactic gunfight between the free-grazers and Baxter's posse is certainly one of the best yet filmed. Here are no stereotypical quick-draw, deadly aimed encounters which are over in mere seconds. Instead we see a tense, brutal street battle, a running melee of cat-and-mouse throughout the town which also superbly illustrates the inaccurate nature of Old West weaponry.

The film explores in great detail the bond between Boss and Charlie, men who have shunned their pasts for a legitimate way of life despite trouble never being far away. Both are handy with the gun and expert trackers, both wish to one day settle down but harbour deep secrets - even from each other. They are at first unperturbed by Baxter's threats, believing they have a right to graze their herd, but things become personal and they begin a deadly mission of revenge against the landowner. Sympathy comes from local residents Percy (MICHAEL JETER) and Sue Barlow (a radiant ANNETTE BENNING), who in their own way help the duo in their deadly fight against town corruption.

DVD Extras include a KEVIN COSTNER audio-commentary, music video montage, storyboards, twelve deleted scenes and a thirteen minute feature on America's real Open Range.

The imagery in this film is stunning with vast, sweeping landscapes which nicely contrast with the enclosed streets of Harmonville while the fore-mentioned gunfight is exciting and ably directed by KOSTNER. All the cast do well in their roles but I would have liked to have seen more of COATES, whose character Butler receives only a few minutes of screen time.

Fans of the genre will not be disappointed and I am sure that even viewers who normally do not watch films of the Old West will find much to enjoy, too!

I got bought the film for my 18th birthday and i'm not really a big fan of westerns but this is absolutely brilliant. The shoot out at the end is just spectacular .

Only one man since Clint Eastwood has been able to produce a good realistic western and thats Kevin Costner. This is an exceptional story to tell and it holds back from the action for the first three quaters of the movie to give us the showdown of the century. It is the most thought out movie i've watched and every snippet of story is well shot and filmed to excellence. The climax at the end is the most realistic western shoot out to be ever filmed on screen!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's not over in a second it 's played in real time,they have to reload,take cover,show courage under fire against much greater numbers. Single handedly worth the joy of watching the whole movie just to see how it pans out at the end.after the shoot out you'll find yourself gasping for breath. A labour of love and well worth a second viewing!!!!
