Too Self-Indulgent -- Needs to be more Tightly Edited
6 September 2010 | by (Washington, DC suburbs, USA) – See all my reviews

Other reviewers have pointed out good and bad features of this movies, and they all have a point.

The feeling that struck me as I watched this was that it was too long.I found myself watching the clock on my DVD player to see how much longer it would last.When I find myself experiencing something like this while watching a film, it usually means the film lacks focus.I think that is true here. There are just too many subplots and unnecessary twists and turns that detract from the feeling of unity in this film. My recommendation would be that it be taken back to the editing room and severely pared down to give it the film a more distinct direction.

Some good points in the film:

  • I thought the actor playing the young boy did a good job, and his
scenes held my attention.

  • The flirtatious scene(s) where the young lawman envies the light on
the leading lady's face was touching, and she did tend to "shine" a bit more in these scenes than others -- she looked better and I thought she was more likable in these scenes.

  • The overall tone of the outdoor scenes were appealing....


But I return to my main point... the film needs tighter editing....
