He was so much fun to watch, and when you combine him with Kevin Kline, who is always fun to watch, but was especially back then in his first and maybe only Western, damn what a delight. Talk about a better way to make an action flick. It moved right along and was shot the old way, with real life colors and all, and the cast was incredible. Not just Costner and Kline, but Danny Glover, Scott Glen, Roseanne Arquette, Brian Dennehy, Jeff Goldblum, and Linda Hunt, who almost stole the movie despite the stellar cast, as she almost always did back then.
And despite lots of mayhem and murder, the violence was relatively realistic but not belabored, or gratuitous or extreme or drawn out, or anything other than a good shoot-em-up. I wish they'd made a sequel.
