For once a decent Costner movie,
This review is from: Open Range [DVD]  (DVD)
Another channel hopping discovery .... this film surprised me because virtually every Kevin Costner film I had previously seen had been total pap !!!
This however is an excellent western. Hard hitting, well acted and it really captures some of the hardship and brutality faced by the cattlemen. Costner is ably supporting the excellent Robert Duvall in a film about oppression and loyalty amid a harsh world where free-grazing, nomadic cattlemen are treated like an underclass. This is a good story, well told and really well acted. As westerns go, this deserves the 5 stars I have awarded it.
