It manages the fine trick of being both an original take on the western while also being a recognizably, full-throated western. Elements of some of the traditional western story lines are combined to great effect. There's the "you shot my pa" story; the "revenge soaked western" story; there's the "prodigal western son returns home to reclaim what's his" story. While Merrigan may be aware of the traditional western story elements, he only wants to flirt and dance with them, not be married to and limited by them because they are all small parts of a larger whole.
And the whole is a bloody, violent, and harsh story (as stories in the west should be).
-Hal the bounty hunter is like a Tarantino character (which is meant as a compliment).
