    Objectively speaking, I think this film merits recommendation in most regards. It was believably told and concise enough to hold your attention all the way through. The cast did a terrific job. Though, while I'm a fan of McGregor, I felt he was miscast in his role. But that's a subjective criticism that didn't seriously detract from enjoying the film; I almost didn't even recognize him at first. My only complaint with this film and the reason I didn't find it very memorable, was the rather droll vernacular. The verbal portion, what was spoken, had little spark or poetic finesse. Compulsorily conveying what was essential is the most it offered or even attempted. Optimistically, my guess is that was the aim, maybe for authenticity's sake. Either that or the film's origins were no more fleshed out than an idea when it went into production and the writer(s) was/weren't allotted the time to really exploit their craft. The result: a solid western, without any real panache or inspired sense of purpose, but a well told, intriguing story none-the-less.

    A tough but realistic story of 1870 New Mexico,

    The films cinematography is focused on the vistas of Central and Northern New Mexico, the story-line is well paced, and flashbacks are incorporated to more effectively tell the saga. The tension between the films two principle characters – Natalie Portman (Jane) & Joel Edgerton (Dan) – makes for an interesting and captivating view. It is “packed” with both action – you won’t fall asleep during its view – and although fleeting there are some worthy “tender-moments.” This Western is in the old style – it is a tough but realistic story with an ending you will be both surprised and pleased with. A Great View! I will see it again at least a 2nd time – perhaps more!

    I saw it at the movies, I went in with low expectations, but found it to be like the classic westerns I grew up with. It had it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly, Revenge, Lost love, Redemption, and of course the classic gun battle where our heroes face overwhelming odds and (spoiler alert) live to tell about it. Oscar contender no, but anyone who likes classic westerns will like this.

    I bought this movie because of it's a Natalie Portman film. I admit that her performance could be better in this movie, and many parts seem to be chappy at best. However, it's quite entertaining and I enjoy the follow of the story. I think that I will watch it again sometimes. I saw some negative review on the internet but I do not feel this is a bad movie at all.

    I did not see the previews for this movie and the name of the movie didn't do much. However after reading some reviews and being a fan of westerns and the actors i took a chance. I loved this movie it was one of the best I've seen in the last year. It was well written and the acting what can i say it spectacular. If you are a fan of westerns you have to see it.

    What a great western! Modern intensity with old school grace, superb acting, direction, script, photography, set and costume historical accuracy, and plenty of twists and turns. Gripping yet slow to burn, the plot smolders, then explodes. This deserved an Oscar nod (fuggedabout the hideous acting in "Revenant," please).

    This was a very interesting movie. Natalie Portman is placed in a role whereby she is compromised as a character in this movie. However, she demonstrates loyalty and love for those that are close to her. Her onscreen strength as a character is amazing. This is a totally different role for her versus previous genres.

    I really enjoyed this movie because it is something I could believe in. Women can be strong and protect their families. They had to be because help was so far away. It showed how women are often taken advantage of and how one woman could rise to the occasion and take back her life.
