“Sam Raimi’s endlessly inventive direction and comic book style gives it plenty of gas, and the excellent cast takes it the rest of the way.’” – Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
Director Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead; Spiderman) brings his trademark comic book-influenced sensibilities to this wild and witty spaghetti western homage featuring an all-star cast. Sharon Stone is Ellen, a mysterious, Eastwood-esque gunslinger who arrives in the lawless town of Redemption to settle a score that has haunted her since she was a child. As she seeks her revenge, she becomes swept up in a deadly quick-draw gun tournament, masterminded by Redemption’s evil, corrupt mayor, Herod (Gene Hackman), a criminal who has taken over the town. The tournament has drawn a motley crew of colorful gunfighters from around the country, all itching to take home the bloody prize money, and as Ellen blasts her way through the competition, she crosses paths with a fast-talking braggart known as “The Kid” (Leonardo DiCaprio), and the pacifist Reverend Court (Russell Crowe), the fastest draw in the West who refuses to participate in the bloodshed. As Ellen uncovers the town’s dirty secrets and closes in on her prey, a crazed final showdown draws ever closer, and if she’s not quick, she may end up dead! A violent, darkly funny, highly entertaining love letter to Leone flicks, The Quick and the Dead is a pulp western comic book come to life! (Dir. by Sam Raimi, 1995, USA, 107 mins., Rated R)
