Red Rock West
Drama | English | 98 minutes
Michael Williams, an unemployed ex-marine, wanders into a bar in Red Rock, Wyoming, looking for work. The bartender, Wayne Brown, mistakes Michael for Lyle, a hitman he hired to kill his wife, Suzanne. Wayne offers Michael a wad of money to do this job. Michael, broke and desperate, grabs the dough and heads for Suzanne’s home. Instead of killing Suzanne, he tells her what Wayne was planning to do. Suzanne then offers Michael more money if he would kill Wayne. As expected, Lyle arrives at the Red Rock bar and he and Wayne figure out what happened. Lyle finds Michael and Suzanne and brings them to the bar to help retrieve the money that’s stashed away. Gunfights and stabbings ensue with Michael and Suzanne surviving. They escape onto a nearby train, but Michael suspects Suzanne is about to betray him. Michael never expected all this when he innocently wandered into the Red Rock bar looking for a job.
