I'm not really a western fan but I'd heard good things about this film and the cast that I thought I'd give it ago. Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris play friends and law enforcers for hire Virgil Cole (Harris) and Deputy Everett Hitch (Mortensen) who are hired to police the town of Appaloosa when the Sheriff is killed. Renee Zellweger arrives in town with nothing but a dollar to her name and her looks, she soon falls for Virgil and they start to build and house in town but the local ranch owner and murderer Randall Bragg (Jeremy Irons) sets his sights on her. Cole and Hitch fight to the death to try and bring Bragg to justice for the murder of the town Sheriff. Features lots of shooting and frantic horse riding and a kidnapping, Jeremy Irons is at his best playing the bad guy Randall Bragg but will he get away with murder? Also stars Timothy Spall, and Lance Henriksen. This film has brilliant reviews but I found it hard to follow and a bit boring at times.
