Trivia

Most of the buildings that are still standing today in High River, where many scenes in Tin Star were filmed, were constructed between 1930 and 1979, though the site was incorporated as a town in 1906 and had seen its first settlers in 1877. See more »

Goofs

A Canadian town that size would not have their own police department. They would be protected by a detachment of the RCMP. Additionally Canadians do not refer to the RCMP as a "federal," police force. See more »

I want to like Tin star so badly...
19 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

...but I just can't! Terrific cast and cinematography. But the story and plot line require such a suspension of disbelief, I couldn't get through four episodes. Completely let down by a lack of technical directors when it comes to Canada, native reserves, the expansion of the oil industry, and everything about police in Canada, procedure, etc. Like I said, I wanted to enjoy it... but just couldn't stomach it.
