But for the ending. Overall OK, then a rust to finish in the last 5 minutes. Why do so many movies make the same mistake.

A by the book racially charged Aussie Western. Accolades all around from the pundits praising the Outback setting and cinematography. Hate to admit, watched most of it at 1.5X to 2.0X. Even the climatic end was predictable. However, did enjoyed the felicitous song "Peace In The Valley" performed by Johnny Cash with the Carter Family as the credit rolled.

"There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray"
