Darn close to a masterpiece... but not an action film!
3 March 2005 | by (Palm Springs) – See all my reviews

First off, "Westender" is not a swords-and-sorcery action film. It's a beautiful medieval tale, with some really nifty action, but at it's core it's an independent style film about a man's struggles with inner demons.

The fighting and action is really about as good as I've seen in this level of indy flick. This is appreciated more with a look at the "making of" feature and learning they had no stuntmen.

The symbolism/deep stuff is done really well, being clear without being obtuse, and being moving without being distracting.

The story follows a fairly understandable path, but there are some connections the audience has to make for themselves, and there are some questions intentionally left unanswered about the backstory. I would like to have seen a better resolution to the Jester character.

Some scenes were really poorly lit, which was my main beef with this otherwise wonderfully shot film.

All and all, if you want some cool knight action you might want to check out this movie, but be prepared to think. If you want some moving human drama, check out this movie but be prepared to enjoy the ride. If you want some gorgeous scenery, CHECK OUT THIS MOVIE now.
