Drifter John Smith (an almost catatonically laid-back Bruce Willis) wafts into Jericho, a piss-hole of a town dominated by the uneasy truce between a low-grade Mafioso outfit and a local Irish group. With both gangs embroiled in the lucrative bootleg trade Smith seizes the chance to exploit the situation.
The film's real strength is the way it sounds, with Ry Cooder's jangling score competing with thunderous gunplay for the shell-like's appreciative attention.
