A brutal study of a Western hero’s retribution turned to psychotic obsession. As the bartender (James Westerfield) tells the doctor (John Archer), “If you’d been tending bar as long as I have, you wouldn’t except so much out of the human race.” By the time of the film’s conclusion, it is clear that Decision at Sundown does not expect much from the human race either.
