I wanted to like this film :(
As an enormous fan of Westerns and a New Zealander, I was so excited to watch this film - having now seen it I'm left with nothing but disappointment. I'll run you through a quick pros and cons list
Interesting and under-explored setting
Several poor actors
Weak third act
Little to no character development in anybody other than the protagonist.
This film feels like it's building to something that never comes. I had enormous hopes and probably a pretty large bias towards the film from the beginning, but it still failed to even entertain me. 4 stars
