Hill is known for male-dominated action films and revival of the Western. He said in an interview, Every film Ive done has been a Western, and elaborated in another, The Western is ultimately a stripped down moral universe that is, whatever the dramatic problems are, beyond the normal avenues of social control and social alleviation of the problem, and I like to do that even within contemporary stories.
