Westerns are all about cinematography, and Blackthorn is no exception.
Wide, sweeping vistas are the order of the day -- but this time, they're something new: South America, and in particular, Bolivia. This tale of an aging-exiled American outlaw and his attempts to return home may seem a bit straightforward and tame, but in the end it's not and you'll be glad to have spend the hour and forty-five minutes partaking in this latest great example of the genre.
The directing isn't too bad either and the actors generally deliver their lines well, although a few are a bit over-read.
For a modern western that's not an adolescent fantasy and has a great deal of heart, it gets 9/10.
