This is an excellent production of a complex book and matches the high standards of the original "Lonesome Dove" series. The screenplay adapted by McMurtry and Diane Ossana is witty and interesting, the performances are uniformly excellent with val Kilmer quite outstanding as Scull; he can act!

The photography and light are spectacular, and give the sense of place sadly missing form other admittedly fine adaptations such as like "Dead Man's Walk" and "Streets of Laredo". Worth watching on wide screen HD TV.

The tone as the review above says slightly sanitises the Commnche BUT not too much. We stills ee the random brutality to women and children. On a less serious note, the absence of smoking is quite unconvincing. That is sanitised TV!

Overall though a very enjoyable production which repays the considerable viewing time in spades. Watch if you have any interest in the "Lonesome Dove" series or westerns in general.

It is worth watching, but nothing like as good as say Lonesome Dove. It seems to suffer from some pretty haphazard editing or a decision to have various unfinished snippets from a main - vaguely cohesive - story. The characters are done well especially seeing them as young men/women and the mystery Newt is explained. Augustus is particularly well cast.

I bought and loved all the Lonesome Dove series of DVDs, but there is no doubt in my mind that this one was by far the best. The story kept me sat in front of the TV, in a way that doesn't happen very often these days. The lead actors who played Call and McRae have changed throughout the series, but the film makers, have always kept and continuity in the way in which they behaved brilliantly. I would strongly recommend this to any lover of westerns. Especially those who have knowledge of the historical west. I personally wouldn't bother with John Wayne of Clint Eastwood!

Another great read from McMurtry. Couldn't put it down. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because it wasn't as good as Lonesome Dove

If you enjoyed Lonesome Dove, you will like this just as much. A must for anyone who have watched the others in the series.
