Watched and Found Wanting
18 May 2017 | by tvsweeney-39052See all my reviews

While this movie is well-filmed and well-acted, it's so confusing and non-Western it's an oddity.

While the performances are good and well-acted, with some people-you-love-to-hate performances are delivered by Harrelson and others, the characters themselves, with the exception of Alice Braga, are mostly clichés. There's really not much background on the who and why. The dialogue is an odd combination of declaratory literate speech and modern idioms.

The film is slow-moving in some areas, almost leisurely in its pacing. By and large, it's a good movie, but one that will leave some dissatisfaction in the way the ending seems unfinished, tapering off into nothing.
