Good Traditional Western,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Appaloosa [DVD] (DVD)
Taken from Robert Parkers novel of the same name this film pretty well touches all the bases that a good western should.Mortenson and Harris do sterling jobs and catch the laconic friendship of Parker's characters well... even Rene wotsherface who usually annoys the hell out of me turns in a decent performance as do the other character actors who populate all the usual traditional western roles.
Its not to Ford or Eastwood standards but its a good enjoyable film with some 'knowing' humour running through it and good solid performances to it as well. The film knows what its doing and works just fine and I'm happy to reccomend it without overstating its case.
Good enjoyable stuff ...
