Synopsis

A young policeman in a sleepy community comes face to face with a notorious killer his very first day on the job in this Western drama from Australia. Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten) is a lawman looking for a more peaceful life for himself and his wife, Alice (Claire van der Boom), who is expecting a child. Cooper takes a job as the constable of a small town called Red Hill without ever visiting the place, and in his first day on the job, his superior "Old Bill" Jones (Steve Bisley) and his colleagues don't seem to think much of Cooper, while the people of Red Hill seem like a quiet bunch who prefer to be left alone. But the calm in Red Hill is shattered when Jones gets word that convicted killer Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis) has escaped from prison. Ten years ago, Jones captured Conway and put him behind bars, and it's expected that he'll be making tracks to Red Hill to get revenge. And their suspicions are correct; shortly after the lawmen load up their weapons and report to their posts, Conway shows up with a shotgun and begins exacting bloody revenge. But later, when Conway gets the jump on Cooper and things don't end as expected, Red Hill's newest peace officer begins to suspect foul play. Red Hill was the first feature film from director Patrick Hughes. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
