  1. Laurs Kemp's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    I enjoy a pure genre exercise as much as the next gal, but it needs to add something to the tropes. This is just a milquetoast 'John Wick' set in the Old West. Unnecessary and uninspired.

  2. J. O.'s rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    With such high hopes hearing West helmed a classic western - this was surprisingly uninspired and wholly tedious. Hawke and Travolta try their hardest to milk a gritty and uncompromising oater from the corny writing, while the rest of the cast is plain wrong - Farmiga was downright unwatchable, Ransone felt distractingly modern. Points for effort at times, but all around this is lazy and mishandled.

  3. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    A lukewarm effort from West where nothing gels. The casting is pretty good but the acting is sketchy and none of the characters make any real sense when all is said and done. And I don´t get the tonality here either. The film veers jarringly between comedy, drama and gruesome vengeance in a unconvincing way. Tarantino usually makes these kind of shifts work but West does not.

  4. Nick Schwab's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    West's last film was the disappointing, The Sacrament, due to its thin characterization, but it got by with a unique premise, Jones' acting, West's directorial skill, and some clever scenes. West's first non-horror flick is this generically plotted, predictable, and uninspired Western that's tepid in both storytelling and style. It's surely West's first bad film since breaking out with 2009's The House of the Devil.

    -Well if you get in my way I'm gonna take you down. -Well the feeling is mutual!

  6. Fırat Ataç's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    opening credits, closing credits and some absurd moments.

  9. DenoResandono's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    Ethan Hawke's second role is western movie after The Magnificent Seven. Since the opening intro, this movie reminds me of some old western movies. Maybe this movie try to make a tribute. Hawke's character is a mix of Clint Eastwood's cowboy and John Wick. There's a "dog issue" and made this movie looks like a western version of John Wick. Well yeah, there's John Travolta too...

  10. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    Ti West se vale de un conflicto que manifiesta poco incentivo. Por un lado tenemos a un "asesino" de aires beneplácitos, por otro a unos aspirantes a villanos. Esto implica que el mismo vehículo de la trama (la venganza) sea insustancial. West en tanto no abandona ciertos instrumentos o climas que parecen retratos de suspenso o terror. Es ahí donde debería de mantenerse.

  11. Luis Pires's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    John Wick in the Wild West. Also, probably Farmiga's best role and Gorman is great in it too.

  12. HKFanatic's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    Just as the pure formal exercise of "The Guest" signaled Adam Wingard's graduation from the "V/H/S" school of mumblecore horror, now Ti West - a filmmaker whose output never seemed to justify the amount of critical attention he received - comes into his own with this throwback Western. Ethan Hawke and John Travolta are a joy to watch in their respective roles, and the onscreen violence is appropriately gruesome.

  13. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film In a Valley of Violence

    suprisingly uninspired western homage from a very interesting director that usually masters that retro filmmaking vibe. maybe Ti West felt overwhelmed by the coolness of a western setting, it comes as a surprise how little ambitious this is. the script is weak and overall there is nothing that much great about it. nice soundtrack and photography
