Surprisingly Good
15 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I've never been big on Western movies but Good for Nothing was surprisingly entertaining. In most Westerns I've seen there are often long drawn out pan out shots of bare land and dull dialogue, however Good for Nothing has witty and sometimes sarcastic dialogue between the characters and a simple plot that juxtaposes the type of lifestyle that was shared during western times. Perhaps the must unique factor that I found out about this movie after I watched it was the fact that its the first Pavlova Western the world has ever seen, meaning it was inspired by spaghetti western movies yet it was filmed in New Zealand. I'm planning on grabbing a copy of it when it comes out in DVD it was that good.
