3.0 out of 5 stars I am not a fan of the coens, and I have never read the book., 1 Nov. 2009
This review is from: No Country For Old Men [Blu-ray] [2007] (Blu-ray)
The film is two thirds a great movie, sadly the last act is nonsense. I appreciate what the Coens were going for but I think the last act lets it down. Basically it all spins out of a drug deal gone south, Josh Brolins characters stumbles across the carnage while out hunting and takes the cash. That is what appears to be the main plot and is what the film seems to centre on, well that and the mob hitman tracking down Josh brolin. It sounds like a fairly straight forward action movie, and I almost think it would have worked better if they had kept it like that. But I suppose related to the title we see a fair amount of Tommy Lee Jones' sheriff trying to figure out what has gone on, and trying to help it all get resolved without too much bloodshed. Javier Bardem is very imposing as the hitman, in fact all the performances are very good. Sadly by not showing the climax to the story and then spending the last act dragging out the last little bit of plot and showing Tommy Lee jones moping about the senselessness of it all leaves the veiwer feeling cheated. A shame that and a few other minor niggles lessen what could have been a masterpeice.
The film looks good anyway and on blu ray even more so but i wouldn't say it is an essential blu ray purchase.
