'Traded' DVD Review

Clay Travis (Michael Pare) was an old style sharpshooter who had taken up ranching and raising his family. You see, in the 1880's Kansas ranching was a  good living but when his daughter Lily goes missing Travis stops everything and goes searching for her. The place he figures on looking first is Wichita. Travis works his way up to talking to what some might call a very shady person by the name of Ty Stover (Trace Adkins). After a little persuasion he gets Stover to talk. He learns that his daughter has been traded to an underground sex ring located in Dodge City.

Travis makes it to Dodge where he stumbles upon an old bartender by the name of Billy (Kris Kristofferson). Billy is able to help Travis in locating his daughter but it's not going to be easy to get her back. Travis figures that the only way to get his daughter back is to go back to his first profession sharpshooter. This means that there is going to be some bloodshed, but whose?

Westerns are beautiful in their simplicity. They all mostly use a gun to answer all problems. Travis had a good thing going. Rancher, family man, living in Kansas with land as far as the eye can see. His daughter means the world to him and he is not going to let this happen to her.

CINEDIGM brings this western to us on DVD on August 2nd, 2016. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are perfect. The story line is a little different but the basics for a good western are there. The scenery is an added plus to the film and the actors are great. This is a definite one to put in that personal DVD library. So pick it up soon and sit back and enjoy a good old fashioned western.
