"Forsaken," an unabashedly straight western, is certainly treading on trope-ridden territory; but Donald and Kiefer's beautiful father-son dynamic truly elevates the material. Both turn in nuanced and emotive performances that more than sell the whole thing.
NIce to see the Sutherlands acting together but a shame its in such a generic vehicle as this one. Standard frontier town story attracted some talent but gives them nothing to work with resulting in a bland old fashioned film. Production values remind one of those 70's and 80's tax shelter films Canada was known for. Wasn't expecting much and received no surprises.
