When pioneer Jane (Portman) finds her husband (Emmerich) badly wounded, she teams up with old lover Dan (Edgerton) to defend herself and her hubby. A reportedly troubled production makes for an entertaining if conventional tale; Portman is sternly believable and it's at least a pony trek in the direction of the rousing feminist western we hoped for.
