“SWAGGERING ONTO THE SCREEN WITH CONFIDENCE AND BRAVADO, THE WEST AND THE RUTHLESS WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING AS IT BOILS OVER TO ITS THRILLING CONCLUSION. GRABBING YOU BY THE FACE AND NEVER LETTING GO, RUTHLESS PACKS MORE GRIT THAN A PRIZE FIGHTER, AND PROMISES A SHOWDOWN THAT WILL LEAVE YOU BREATHLESS.”
— Jonathan Martin, FilmQuest
