Broken Trail is a superior TV production, an epic revisionist Western that showcases some of the best of what the genre can offer. With an outstanding central performance from Robert Duvall, who has some solid support, the sumptuous, well-paced tale of slavery, morality and humanity around the turn of the Century is a highly enjoyable, compelling affair. On Blu-ray it gets decent video presentation, a mildly disappointing (if technically superior) audio track and a nice single extra to accompany the movie, and fans should lap it up. Those fond of Duvall or Westerns really shouldn't hesitate in picking this up, and newcomers could consider a rental.
