In the 2016 Western thriller film, The Duel, Woody Harrelson takes on the role of David Kingston, a Texas Ranger who is sent to a small town to investigate a series of mysterious deaths. Liam Hemsworth plays his counterpart, Abraham Brant, the charismatic town preacher with a dark side. As Kingston delves deeper into his investigation, he discovers that Brant has created a cult-like following among the townspeople, and that their fervor may have something to do with the deaths. Kingston becomes increasingly convinced that Brant is responsible for the killings, but he must tread carefully as he tries to gather evidence and build a case against the powerful preacher.

Throughout the film, Harrelson delivers a strong performance as the seasoned Texas Ranger. He portrays a man who is haunted by his own past and grappling with personal demons, while also embodying the rugged and determined spirit of a lawman on a mission.

Hemsworth, meanwhile, showcases his range as an actor in the role of Brant. He portrays a man who is both charismatic and enigmatic, with a menacing side that gradually becomes more apparent as the story unfolds.

As the two characters clash, the tension in the film builds to a fever pitch. The action sequences are well-executed and keep the viewer on the edge of their seat, while the film's setting in the sprawling Texas landscape adds to its sense of epic scope.

Alice Braga also appears in the film as Marisol, a local woman who catches Kingston's eye and becomes entangled in the investigation. Braga delivers a strong performance as a woman who is resourceful and independent, but also vulnerable in the face of the danger that surrounds her.

Overall, The Duel is a well-crafted and suspenseful film that delivers strong performances from its lead actors and plenty of action and intrigue. Fans of the Western genre are sure to enjoy this modern take on the classic showdown between lawman and outlaw.
