Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Tom Selleck plays Matthew Quigley, the cowboy hero in this traditional Western, set very untraditionally in Australia. After some macho silliness in the opening minutes, the story settles into a surprisingly evocative tale of Quigley, a sharpshooter who had come to the country to work for a land baron (Alan Rickman) and who is on the mend after a brutal attack. In the company of a woman (Laura San Giacomo) abused by that same baron, Quigley gets his strength and his shooting skills back while healing in the midst of aboriginal people as well as some stunning Australian settings. Director Simon Wincer (Phar Lap) brings a lot of integrity to this rare horse opera from contemporary Hollywood. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Tom Selleck gives the boldest performance of his career in this "new style, revisionist western with the panoramic scope of a movie epic" (Los Angeles Times). Fierce gunfights, forbidding landscapes, breakneck chasesall hallmarks of the classic westernare reinvented in this hard-pounding actioner that "revitalizes the genre" and comes out "a sure winner" (The Hollywood Reporter). Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when herealizes, instead, that his mission is murderto "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattlebaron's landQuigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted. Forced to wage a savage waragainst his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighterno one, that is, except the mysterious beauty (Laura San Giacomo, sex, lies, and videotape) who rides by his side and captures his heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A frontier remote yet familiar Aug. 6 2003
Format:DVD
I first saw this on premium cable and had to own a copy. The movie's portrayal of the versatility of the single-shot cartridge rifle was very welcome. ("I never said I didn't know how to shoot a pistol - I just never had much use for one." Great line in a great scene.) Laura San Giacomo was wonderful and Alan Rickman was perfect as Alan Rickman always is. I'm pretty sure the portrayals of the Australian aborigines was authentic, too. The story is pure Louis Lamour - it had me checking my collection for forgotten classics. (Lamour did not write this.) Basil Pouledoris composed a score that deserves a soundtrack album. This is one of those movies that are perfect for a sick day or a snow day - an all-time classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid, satisfying western! July 14 2003
By M. Dog
Format:DVD
This is a very satisfying western. Tom Selleck stars as Matthew Quigley, a sharpshooter of some reputation that is contracted by a ranch owner in Australia, ostensibly to keep vermin from destroying his land. It soon becomes clear, however, that the ranch owner, Elliott Marston (played wonderfully by Alan Rickman) wants Quigley to do a great deal more than knock over dingoes.
Selleck is the rightful heir to the throne of John Wayne. He projects the same strength of character that Wayne did and has the same quality that Wayne did when on camera - the viewer's eye is drawn to him regardless of who else is in the shot. He simply seems to fill the screen. His acting has always been underrated. There are few actors working that seem so natural and at ease in front of the lens (Tom Hanks comes to mind.) Also, Selleck is an experienced gun owner, and his handling of the 1874 Sharps Rifle in the film is extremely true to life and accurate all the way. He just seems in his element handling a rifle, or the Colt SAA six-guns he uses toward the end of the film.
The real surprise in the film was the performance of Laura San Giacomo. Nothing from the TV series Just Shoot Me ever gave an indication of her acting chops. Here, she gets to stretch out, and she makes the best of it. She is a very fine actress, it turns out. She plays the part of Crazy Cora, a woman who is just hanging around the ranch. When we first meet her, she is clearly crazy. Suffice to say that as the movie progresses, she becomes a romantic interest for Quigley.
There is a truly remarkable scene where, in the quiet of a camp at night, she relates the incident in her life that broke her, drover her mad. It is not an easy scene to play, and she handles it perfectly - very understated and very, very moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Selleck's best ever Feb. 5 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Like many TV actors, "Quigley"'s star Tom Selleck gave much attention, during and after his small-screen career, to attempting to break into movies. If he'd been born in 1926, instead of 1946, he would probably have gained fame, not as Thomas Magnum, but in Western films and/or TV series like this one. Quigley is the role he was born to play, and in Quigley's adventures he has made, to my mind, the best movie of his career.
This slam-bang actioner, though often labelled a "Western," actually takes place, not in the American West, but in the Crown Colony of Western Australia, probably around 1875 (there are still convicts there). Selleck plays Matthew Quigley, a soft-spoken marksman from Wyoming, who answers an advertisement by Australian rancher Marston (Alan Rickman) for "the finest long-distance marksman in the world." After three months on a sailing ship, he steps ashore at the port of Fremantle, where he promptly gets into a brawl with what turn out to be three of Marston's men, come to meet him, and is mistaken by displaced "native-born Texian" Crazy Cora Cobb (Laura San Giacomo) for her husband Roy. At Marston Water he offers a display of his skill with his primary weapon, a customized Sharps .45 buffalo gun, and impresses everyone, including Marston, who describes himself as "a student of your American West" and is a fast draw, pinpoint-accurate, and quietly proud of it. Only now does Quigley find out that he was being hired, not to kill dingoes (Australian wild dogs) as he thought, but to clear Marston's lands of the native Aboriginies. He promptly throws Marston out the French window of his own house, but is eventually overwhelmed by Marston's crew and, with Cora, taken out to the desert to die.

5.0 out of 5 stars DOWN UNDER AND OVER THE TOP. Jan. 29 2003
Format:VHS Tape
WHEN THIS ONE CAME ALONG IN LATE 1990, WESTERN FANS WERE IN A DROUGHT. 'DANCES WITH DOGS' WAS HARDLY A RIGHTEOUS COWBOY FLICK, BUT "QUIGLEY" WAS AN EXCEPTION.
SIMON WINCER OF 'LONESOME DOVE' FAME WAS THE GENIUS BEHIND THE CAMERA AND TOM SELLECK WAS THE ONE OUT FRONT. FORGET THAT ITS SET IN AUSTRALIA. THAT IS INDEED UNIQUE BUT A WESTERN IS A WESTERN AND THIS ONE FILLS THE BILL NICELY.
THERE HAD BEEN A FEW T.V. WESTERNS AROUND THE SAME TIME BUT THEY WERE LACKLUSTER BY COMPARISON.
SELLECK, ALONG WITH SAM ELLIOTT MAY BE OUR ONLY HOPE FOR QUALITY HORSE OPERAS IN THE FUTURE. TOM SELLECK, AN AVID HUNTER AND GUN ENTHUSIAST JUST LOOKS RIGHT HOLDING A SHARPS OR ANY OTHER FIREARM FOR THAT MATTER.
IN THIS YARN HE IS MATTHEW QUIGLEY RESPONDING TO MARSTEN'S WANT AD FOR A LONG RANGE RIFLEMAN. THE BAD GUY PLAYED BELIEVABLY ENOUGH BY ALAN RICKMAN HIRES THE AMERICAN COWBOY ON THE PREMISE OF SHOOTING WILD DOGS, BUT HE ACTUALLY WANTS THE SHARPSHOOTER TO ANILATE THE NATIVE ABORINEES TO SETTLE AN OLD SCORE.
WHEN QUIGLEY LEARNS THE TRUTH HE TURNS THE TABLES AND BECOMES THE NATIVES "GHOST WARRIOR" PROTECTING THEM AND SNIPING MARSTEN'S (RICKMAN) HENCHMEN FROM WAY OUT YONDER.
THE SCORE IS GREAT WITH BIG MUSIC MUCH LIKE THE GREAT WESTERNS OF THE SIXTIES.
QUIGLEY IS FORCED TO ACCEPT A DISCARDED WOMAN (LAURA SOMETHIN ANOTHER) AS A SIDEKICK. THE WOMAN'S JUST "A BUBBLE OFF THE PLUMB, AND THATS FOR SURE AND FOR CERTIN." QUIGLEY SPOUTS, BUT THE GIRLS AILMENT IS A CHARADE AND ROMANCE FOLLOWS. THE BANTER BETWEEN THESE TWO IS HILARIOUS.
BUT THE WESTERN ACTION CARRIES THE PICTURE AND THE MOST TRUE OF COWBOY FANS WILL BE PLENTY SATISFIED BY THIS ONE.
I CANT THINK OF ANYTHING REALLY CRITICAL TO SAY ABOUT THIS FILM.
WHEN IT PREMIERED I WAS SO HUNGRY FOR A GOOD WESTERN I ATE IT UP LIKE CHILI AND CRACKERS.

Tom Selleck has always been a favorite of mine from the old Magnum P.I. days. He turns in a good performance in this film as a post Wild Wild West gunslinger with a conscience. Read more
