Life in the old west...

Westerns don't come along very often these days but we are lucky that Ed Harris decided to star in and direct Appaloosa. He assembles a fine cast including Renne Zelwegger as the not so innocent love interest and Jeremy Irons as the villanous rancher. Viggo Mortenson is on form as always. A well made and enjoyable film though not as action packed as one may think, given the genre.
Cowboys with a difference.

Two ageing cowboys are hired to protect a small town against a local 'gang'.
This story has been done many times before, but this film isn't your usual shoot-em-up western. The characters are well drawn, each with their own faults and demons. The harshness of life back then is well shown. A good film, though a little slow.

This is a good movie, but not a great movie. the plot is very straightforward but the actors do not disappoint. There is nothiing new or ground breaking on offer but it is a good watch and there is a nice line in humour. I couldn't help feel it could have been much more.

If your looking for an all action type western then this is not for you. A more gritty & quite possibly more true to life western than your average effort and keeps you interested from start to finish. Good performances from Harris & Mortensen.

Worth viewing if you are a fan of acting - it's simple and understated with brilliant performances from all the leads. Would put The 3 burials of Melquiades Estrada and The Proposition over this on style, but it's a good film.
