Straightforward Ed Harris project (acts, writes, directs and produces !) No frills but plenty of stuff to keep you interested. Only loses a star because of J.Irons's irritating accent.. now which other Brit star in a historical western do you think he reminded me of....

In 1892 the town of Appaloosa was changing, the railway was in place, business were springing up, new houses where being built, but the violence of the old west was still evident. When Randall Bragg shoots down a Marshal and his deputies the dignitaries hired Marshall Virgil Cole and his deputy Everett Hitch to bring Bragg to justice and peace to the town. This hard bitten western stars Ed Harris, who also directs, produces and co-scripts the film, as Marshall Cole and an almost unrecognisable Viggo Mortensen as Deputy Hitch with Jeremy Irons as Bragg. The love interest is well served by Renee Zellweger. A good authentic, well shot, western highly recommended if for no other reason than the splendid on screen relationship between the two main characters.

Not being a big fan of westerns I was unsure how this film would pan out. It turned out to be entertaining (despite a faltering period in the middle). The chemistry between Harris and Mortensen's characters was a delight and the script was inventive and amusing at times.

The rest of the cast played their part in keeping the story flowing along. Irons clearly makes a good slimy villain and Zellwegger was believable as the femme fatale seeking the best stallion.

There is nothing particularly unique about the story (good against evil etc.). However, Harris brings a certain quality to the film that makes for a very likable hero. He is perfectly supported by Mortenson. Good film.

Having read the book that follows the one that this is based on I knew fairly much what to expect for this - and was not disappointed. As another reviewer pointed out, the basic plot is not hugely original, but it is done well - and has a more realistic feel to it than many more typical hollywood western. Dialogue is good and although I am not sure that the choice of female lead was right, performances of the two male leads are very good. To me the film is often very low key, without loads of long gunfights/chases etc and is all the better for it. Well worth watching if you set your expectations right.

Very good film (needs a bit of a brain rather than the usual shoot-em-up). Not a classic though
