One wonders what original director Lynne Ramsay may have made out of this project. Instead we've received this stillborn effort from Gavin O'Connor that treads familiar territory in a misbegotten fashion. Even Natalie Portman can't save this from being a turkey. Featuring Ewan Mcgregor as some version of Snidely Whiplash.
This was slow. Not in a slow-burning, contemplative way - just slow. The production feels cheap and rushed - at least at times - but that is not to say it didn't have its share of beauty or grit. Portman is overacting as usual, but keeps up her end of the bargain while Edgerton is trying his best despite the clunky script. Completely unessential.
Nothing spectacular here but it is an engaging western. Portman and Edgerton have good chemistry and McGregor looks as if he is having a good time playing the bad guy. Just enough grit to make this good.
Film western türünde olsa da, kocasının öldürülmesini önlemek amacıyla eski sevgilisinden yardım isteyen cesur kadın Jane'in intikam öyküsünü konu ediyor. 2 yönetmen eskiten, 3 defa oyuncu kadrosu değişen film, oldukça ağır tempolu, izlerken sıkılmamak elde değil.
if only lynne ramsay had stayed on, this could potentially have been great but just ended up being slow and flat and i wish ewan mcgregor would give up acting and i've never really rated natalie portman.
