Great acting which lifts the film from a B movie to a real movie, but the movie is very slow moving and difficult to get into.
25 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"What's the point in dying if nobody knows your dead? Same goes for killing." Jay Cavendish (Smit-McPhee) wants nothing other than to get back to the woman he loves. In 19th century America traveling across the prairie is dangerous so he enlists the help of the mysterious Silas Selleck (Fassbender). Together they traverse the dangerous open plains in hopes of reaching their final destination, alive and together. In the last few years westerns have been nothing but cheesy B-movies that are hard to watch. This one has great acting which lifts the film from a B movie to a real movie. On the other hand the movie is very slow moving and difficult to get into. This movie had glimpses of Seraphim Falls and other movies like that, but there was no real character development which made the movie lack emotion for me. This may be a movie that many people like and I am way off on according to them, but for me the great acting only took the movie so far. Overall, worth watching for the acting, but a struggle to get through. I give it a C+.
