* DuelingStarsMovie: The main appeal of the film is the showdown between Creator/PierceBrosnan and Creator/LiamNeeson, two greatly respected Irish actors.
* FakeAmerican: Both Brosnan and Neeson are Irishmen playing Americans. Amusing when both separately encounter an Irish foreman of a railroad construction crew, played by the American Xander Berkeley, and Gideon taunts one of his (American) underlings by calling him "Paddy Boy"

An unknown event during the final days of the {{American Civil War}} has made captain Gideon, who fought for the Union, the arch-enemy of ex-Confederate colonel Carver. Now Carver is out for revenge. He’s gathered a team of mercenary trackers and they’ve managed to pick up Gideon’s trail. However, at first Gideon doesn’t actually know why he is being chased; the viewer follows his struggle to stay alive as he begins to understand what horrible part of his past has come to haunt him.

* DealWithTheDevil: both characters end up making deals with someone who very well may be the literal Devil, aka [[spoiler: Madame Louise]]. Both trade something that would make it easier for them to survive (Gideon's horse, Carver's water) for something that will perpetuate their feud ( a bullet for Gideon, a gun for Carver).



* {{Satan}}: Madame Louise’s full name is written on the back of her wagon: [[LouisCypher Louise C. Fair]].
