Seraphim Falls (2006)

I really enjoyed this mixture of classic western and fantasy film. Because it really started with the old classic way of a typical action film and it almost ended at such a surrealistic topic. Carver and his team of headhunters are tracking Gideon at the minimalistic fields of Nevada over the cold mountains and the empty deserts. They want him alive as Carver commanded. But Gideon is a tough guy, ready to kill for survive and escape through the paths. His only weapon is a sharp knife but he is so expert to that, he doesn't finally need for something else. Seraphim Falls is the place that everything started and we will find the reason of this ruthless hunting though several flashbacks. The end is spectacular and gives another dimension to this film as the last characters the two heroes meet, an old Indian and a woman selling drugs in the middle of nowhere, lead to a result probably more philosophical than you think. Liam Neeson is good as always and Pierce Brosnan is apocalyptic as also the rest of the cast work properly.
