4.0 out of 5 stars Bridges with awesome hair and an even more awesome 'tache
One of those semi-forgotten Classic Hollywood-era movies (although a bit late, 1981 I think) when there were talented directors being given free reign to make intelligent, beautiful films - tense and suspensful too. Before everything became about genres and MTV-style editing and overblown pretentious tosh like Babel passed for, er, intelligent and beautiful...

3.0 out of 5 stars Less a lost classic and more of an 80s curio
Led to believe that this was a lost classic. I would say that was stretching it, but it is certainly a curio for film fans. John H is deliciously over the top as a war vet with an eye patch, one leg and a drink problem. Not quite Johnny Depp in Pirates but certainly there are echoes, without the comedy. Jeff B is young, handsome and displaying the acting chops that have...

Led to believe that this was a lost classic. I would say that was stretching it, but it is certainly a curio for film fans. John H is deliciously over the top as a war vet with an eye patch, one leg and a drink problem. Not quite Johnny Depp in Pirates but certainly there are echoes, without the comedy. Jeff B is young, handsome and displaying the acting chops that have helped him maintain such a long and varied career over the years. The story, well it's an odd mix of paranoid 70s conspiracy and 80s monied drama. It has some good moments, but watching it I understand why it isn't often quoted as one to watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cut from your list of films to see., 2 Oct 2014

This review is from: Cutter's Way [DVD] [1981] (DVD)
A dreary dated film full of dislikeable characters, a tedious plot, poorly directed, badly cut. Jeff Bridges seems to take work as enthusiastically as Michael Caine, never pausing to wonder whether they will enhance or diminish his reputation. His insouciance seems to pay off, after all, if you don't like a Jeff Bridges film, anoyther one will be along in a week or two. The good actor John Heard plays Alex Cutter, a Vietnam vet who has lost an arm and a leg, and who is offensive, argumentative, and generally disagreeable. It is the sort of character that actors think is 'edgy' and will enhance their reputation and range. Personally I don't agree. I don't want to watch Alex Cutter in particular, nor the film in general. One to miss.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 July 2011

I normally love Jeff Bridges in just about anything but this little exercise I found so very ordinary and a waste of his talents. The fault must lie partly with John Heard who plays a fairly tiresome character who tends to dominate the scenes which is hardly his fault but mainly with the director who doesn't do enough with what is a fairly simple plot. And as for the ending, it was though "now what can we do to liven this up and then close the curtains?"

While Cutter's Way has some strong performances, it meandered enough to put me to sleep and had me hitting the fast forward often. Save your money.
