The Greatest Cinematic Shootouts Pt. 4 – Simon Wincer’s “Quigley Down Under” (1990)

The next addition to the collection comes from a slightly little known gem from 1990; Quigley Down Under, starring Tom Selleck as American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley. He’s lured to Australia by wealthy landowner Marston, (masterfully played by legendary villain Alan Rickman) who’s in search of a marksman with the precision and ruthlessness necessary to rid his sprawling property of aborigines. Quigley disagrees with the arrangement, and spends the rest of the film picking away at Marsden’s group of thugs. This scene depicts the final shootout between hero and villain(s).
