Our heroine is Liz (Dakota Fanning), carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, hunted by a vengeful Preacher (Guy Pearce) - a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis.

Probably the worst experience of my life
15 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

In a sentence: it feels like 10 hours long.

The plot is pushed backward and backward and it is unnecessary most of the times.

The villain is so over the top to be beyond ridiculous. The violence is displayed for the purpose of displaying it, till it is simply saturated and you don't care about it anymore.

The real violence is made towards the audience that has to wait an unspeakable amount of time to finally see the end credits.

The themes are just drowned into a sea of useless scenes, inserted in the movie only to justify the casting of some actors.

I wish HBO paid more money to Kit Harington so he doesn't have to be in such movies to pay the bills.
