Yeah, I can't remember the name but it's an adaptation of Kurosawa's Yojimbo and/or one of the Sergio Leone spagetti westersn with Clint eastwood.


Correct on both counts: Yojimbo came first and Leone's "For a Few Dollars More" was the homage/remake... The Willis flick wasn't too bad either but Kurosawa's and Leone's adaptation in kind are infinitely superior in my purview.
