Does it really have that classic Western feel?
Not so much "classic" goofy cowboy feel but it deals with a lot of realistic issues people back then dealt with. Railroad coming in and taking land, Chinese building railroads, the desperation of the times, etc. Don't expect a nice, clean, John Wayne to come riding into town or anything.
I am also a Martial Arts/Kung-Fu movie buff and I swear it has hints of that classic Samurai movie-like feel to it.
