I was skeptical about purchasing this film but as a Zane Grey fan I wanted to see a modern portrayal of this famous book. I was pleasantly surprised. Although not as detailed, it is amazingly true to the book. Ed Harris is a very convincing "Lassiter". The dialog as well as the beauty of the location brought me back to the wonderful adventure that Zane Grey portrays in his books. I would recommend that the book be read first as this helped me to appreciate the film makers artful presentation of a subject that would be considered mean spirited in our overly sensitive culture. If your looking for special features such as the directors commentary forget it. I found this refreshing as most of that stuff is just filler and contributes little or nothing to the enjoyment of a well made film. If your a Zane Grey fan you will love it.

The best adaptation of the Zane Grey novel I have ever seen. A gritty, realistic drama with terrific acting and dialogue.

Ed Harris was great as usual, as was Amy Madigan in a tough situation in a very tough country. I felt all the other characters also did a good job with their roles. My very personal reason for enjoying this film is that it was made on what was my grandfather's ranch. Nearly every summer growing up I spent wonderful time there with the cowboys , Indians, and animals. My favorite building was the one with the deer antlers over the door.. Inside were the saddles, bridles, sweaty horse blankets, and other things that smelled deliciously earthy.

I enjoy the relationship between Jane and Lassiter, made more interesting by the long married Ed Harris and Amy Madigan. The language seems stilted to modern ears but it's true to the language of the book. It was filmed beautifully and always a pleasure to watch.

Years ago while serving as a Mormon missionary, a prospective convert I was working on agreed to read the book of Mormon if I would read Riders of the Purple sage. I reported back the book was not accurate in the way it portrayed early Mormonism.- Unfortunately I discovered I was wrong.

Both book and movie show typical 1800's Mormon dictator mentality and suppression of women and outsiders.

I have all Zane Grey's hardcover novels. This was always a favorite. Deals with the Mormon religion in the early days but doesn't come right out and say it. Ed Harris does a great job of playing the gunfighter out to avenge his sister who was taken by the church.

Been waiting several years for the DVD. Quality is excellent. There is no scene selection on the menu. Fast forward is sketch at best and rewind is nonexistent.

This is the most accurate movie about Zane Grey's famous book. The Mormon church is not identified but the church men are really supposed to be Mormons and it depicts the polygamy of the early church before the church laws changed to match the laws of the USA. Exciting and well done.
