Samuels is the director of this bloody revenge western and has done a stellar job at capturing all the plot and storyline.
The role of Rufus Buck, the prisoner being released is played by Elba.
And King character, Trudy Smith is part of Buck's gang that is being hunted by the character Nat Love.
About The Harder They Fall
When an outlaw discovers his enemy is being released from prison, he reunites his gang to seek revenge.
It kicks open the doors and does something original, right? So I kind of expect Jeymes Samuels and in his future movies, to be dynamic in that way.Idris Elba, actor, The Harder They Fall
While this is fantasised, this story, it is anchored in a bit of truth and I think that is what grounds the performances.Regina King, actress, The Harder They Fall
I am in absolute shock at the fact that films like this can be created, where we are able to see black people in a way that has never ever been shown before.Thando Thabethe, 947 Drive with Thando
