ReelViews for 'Western' movies
Strikes an effective balance between satire and homage and mines the most common ore of the old-time Westerns.
While there are gunfights and everything concludes with a big shoot-out, the complexity of the situation is anything but standard-order fare for a Western.
"The Revenant" isn’t for everyone but for those to whom the subject matter appeals, this is among 2015’s most memorable theatrical options.
A high-wire thriller, full of masterfully executed twists, captivating dialogue, and a wildly entertaining narrative that gallops along at a pace to make three hours evaporate in an instant.
