An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Christoph Waltz meets Willem Dafoe meets Benjamin Bratt – a star-studded, suspense-filled neo-Western from veteran director Walter Hill.

1897, the US-Mexico border. Max Borlund (Christoph Waltz) is a feared bounty hunter, a “hired hand”. Now he must find Rachel Kidd (Rachel Brosnahan), the kidnapped wife of an influential businessman. Things soon turn out different than they first seemed. Across the border, Max not only has to deal with a ruthless Mexican criminal (Benjamin Bratt) and his gang; to make matters worse, his nemesis Joe Cribbens (Willem Dafoe) is on the loose – and also heading south.

Walter Hill’s comeback is a sensationally cast homage to both classic Hollywood and Italian Westerns. At the same time, it succeeds in delivering a new take on the genre that is as confident as it is contemporary.


In 1978 Walter Hill made his masterpiece ›Drive‹, which inspired Nicolas Winding Refn’s ›Drive‹ starring Ryan Gosling. The cult film ›The Warriors‹ and the Western ›Long Riders‹ followed. He made a star of Eddie Murphy and worked with Nick Nolte, Bruce Willis, Jeff Bridges, Gene Hackman, and Sylvester Stallone.
