Near the end of the movie when Jane goes into the town, Lullaby, to collect the posted bounty rewards, she is driving two brown horses who are pulling the cart which we later find out is carrying the body of the top wanted criminal she killed. Her white riding horse, seen at other times in the movie, is tethered to the rear of the cart which one can assume is the horse she will use to ride back with, although it is not saddled. When she returns with her money bags after collecting all the "wanted dead or alive" rewards, she mounts a saddled-up brown horse with something that looks like a bedroll behind the saddle and heads back to her home. When she approaches the covered wagon in which her family is waiting, the unsaddled white horse can be seen in the distance, tethered to the rear of that wagon. See more »

Jane Got a Gun and kind of missed the shot
24 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was among the lucky people to have seen the movie premier in Paris tonight. Going in I was mildly excited for the film, wondering how much of an effect the tumultuous development had on the final product.

Jane Got a Gun is interesting for sure but it's slooow. The first two acts are desperately trying to built tension with a slow dead like pace, and long silences, that only puts the audience to sleep. I actually dozed off a few times. It's a shame because I think there's something special about it.

The story is good with a few minor surprises and solid acting. Even in the long silences the actors were engaged and conveyed the adequate emotions. Joel Edgerton and Natalie Portman have some great moments, their performances are riddles by subtleties that make for powerful scenes, ruined by shots a couple of seconds too long. The movie picks up though, it come as a breath of fresh air, after slogging our way through the first two acts.

So after all of the cast and recast of actors and directors what suffered? My guess the editing because some scenes could have been cut short while maintaining the message. Jane Got a Gun could probably be one of those movies that will become a cult classic.
