NOME, ALASKA, IN 1889 teems with new riches, but not for Hudson Santeek (Christopher Lambert of Highlander and Mortal Kombat ). He’s run up against an unwritten Golden Rule: mining boss Sean McLennon (The Godfather’s James Caan) has the gold – and he makes the rules.
In this wilderness action saga directed by Nils Gaup (Pathfinder ), McLennon falsely claims the rich lode Hudson vows to protect because it’s on sacred Inuit land. Hudson has McLennon’s mistress (Catherine McCormack of Braveheart ) taken hostage after McLennon and his murderous gang strike at him. McLennon may have firepower. But in North Star territory, it’s Hudson’s fighting savvy that’s good as gold.
