Heaven's Gate Short Review

4 Star Epic Western with the smell of real life Wyoming 1890.

Set in the established burgeoning America, towns and cities are starting to get flooded by migrants from Eastern Europe, much to the dislike of Land owners and especially the Stockholder Association, who see these farm settlers as vermin or worse.

Heaven's Gate DVD coverSet around the dysfunctional friendship between James Averill (Kris Kristofferson, Blade franchise) and Billy Irvine (John Hurt, Alien).  We see them graduate from Harvard college Cambridge Massachusetts and the grandeur of those hallowed halls.

But twenty years later we see a bearded Averill slumped drunken on a train as it pulls into Casper Wyoming.

Averill has power but has dumbed down his lifestyle as he prefers the simple life rather than the trappings of his birth right.

He has to fight for what he believes in that everybody has the right to farm America even if his peers disagree.

Available on DVD now
