Director Uli Edel (BODY OF EVIDENCE) helmed this tale of the Old West in 1999. Set in a town called Refuge, Wild Bill Hickok (Sam Shepard), Doc Holliday (Randy Quaid), and Jesse James (J.D. Souther) are among the inhabitants, even though they've long since passed away. The town is actually Purgatory, a middle ground for reckless outlaws who must prove themselves to be worthy of a place in Heaven, or face an eternity rotting in the pit of Hell. No one who resides in Refuge is allowed to carry a gun, nor is there any jail, or even swearing. So when a wild bunch of desperados turn up, led by Blackjack Britton (Eric Roberts), they are surprised at what they find. Britton and his men soon realize they are among some illustrious company, and set about taking the town for their own. The TNT channel originally aired this compelling sci-fi western that saddles up its horse and rides out of town to a satisfyingly explosive conclusion.
I've been looking everywhere for this movie and someone suggested overstock.com and i found it without a problem. I'm so excited i finally found it, Purgatory is one of the greatest westerns. Thank You, Overstock
This is just a great movie. Religious themes, but not preachy at all. The special effects could be better, but they're only in two small parts and didn't take away from the film. It's a great, old-style western for the family.
I highly enjoyed this movie as did my entire family. I'm not one to like to watch a lot of "old time" westerns, but found this movie very entertaining. I am getting this for my daughter as it is one of her favorite all time movies. I disagree that kids have to be 18 to enjoy this. My daughter was only 10 when it came out and she watched several times.
This is so GOOD of a movie. If you like movies with old west movies then you will enjoy this movie. The movie has Billy the Kid and other famous gunslingers of the west. This is not a movie for children to they are over 18.
I rate this movie a FIVE STAR.
