In a city of violence and corruption, the sheriff of western Texas, T.W. Liddell, has little time for such injustices. But a group of outlaws including two sons of the town's Sheriff, Peter (Donald Sutherland) and Billy (Pierce Brosnan) plot to take over the town. The sheriff sets up a posse to stop them. Their plan is to capture two gunmen - one of them, James (Bubba Smith), has an eye for a young hitchhiker, Jack (Jamie Lee Curtis). They are accompanied by Rick (Scott Glenn) and 'the leader' of the posse, Teddy (R. Lee Ermey). But, as they race to catch up to the two gunmen, the sheriff is killed. Now, it's up to the posse to make sure they don't miss out on a lucky shot. My rating: *1/2 out of 5.

There is a great deal of thought put into this film, and the only thing I can really say about it is that I think it is beautifully made. And the film is even more beautiful in its cinematography and score. It is well directed, well acted, and has a brilliant score. I know a lot of people were disappointed by it not being a "Bourne" type film, and some of them might be right. But I think it is a great story that would make a great movie. I can see why people might think that the film was not the most realistic in its depiction of the Vietnam War. It was not realistic in the sense that the people were able to be so bold and intelligent in getting out of the area and avoiding a major military offensive. It was realistic in the sense that these people were in a country that had seen its last major military attack a few years before and that it had been a small civil war between the old South and the new, pro-civil war North. The only way that they could have been able to get out was by the same way they were able to get out of. That is the way the film made me feel, that they were so willing to take risks. I thought it was a great story, and I recommend it.

I wasn't expecting a very good film, but this one really surprised me. The acting was excellent, the story was entertaining, the scenery was beautiful, and the action scenes were awesome. I just have to say that some of the acting could have been better, and some of the acting could have been worse. But the actors did a good job. I am not a huge Clint fan, but he did an awesome job here. It is not just about the shoot outs, it is about the human emotions and the consequences of war. This is a film that could have been a classic, but unfortunately, it isn't. It is a great film, and if you have not seen it yet, do so. I rate it a 7 out of 10, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good film.

How about that for a change of pace. I read the book this year, and was blown away. I've been a fan of Robert Louis Stevenson since I was about 7 years old, and I thought the movie would be a 'dare to be different' type of movie, like in "Lone Star". Unfortunately, the movie does NOT live up to the novel. The book is a very big, sprawling novel, and this movie, it felt like, was trying to cram as much story into the movie as possible. This is the biggest mistake of the movie, it feels like you're watching it for a second or two, before it's over. I think they could have made the movie a little longer, and taken out a lot of unnecessary stuff, like the bit with the backwoods preacher, and the fight with the preacher. The thing I didn't like, is that they just put in every single scene of the book, and then the movie doesn't change a thing. All the characters have changed, so there's not much to say about the characters. Some of the fight scenes were a little ridiculous, like the one with the captain and the book, I thought that was ridiculous. Overall, I liked the movie, but I think it could have been better. 7/10

John Sayles does an excellent job of portraying the very real world of one man's struggle with alcoholism. Whether you're familiar with Sayles or not, I think you will be very impressed by the story and the characters. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that I do think that the ending is not as satisfying as it could have been. A well done film.

The movie is set in the 1890s, in the small town of Blue Creek, Alabama. It is the time of the Civil War. The Confederate forces have not yet arrived, and the Union forces have a small but active base in the town. The townspeople have all been turned into Union sympathizers, and they are preparing for the inevitable. A couple of Union soldiers are arrested, and two Union officers are arrested. The townspeople are convinced that the Union soldiers are guilty. They decide to show their support by lynching the two Union officers. This film is based on a novel by Lawrence Block. It is a very good film, and it is worth watching.

Saw this film in the theater and was impressed with the special effects and the acting. I liked it. It was about a group of men in the 1800's that became involved in a conspiracy to assassinate a king. I have seen a few movies on the conspiracy, but this is the first I have seen that dealt with the plot of the assassination. It was interesting to see the entire conspiracy unfold, and the men involved. I really liked the acting of Michael Douglas and John Cusack. It was nice to see the old west, the setting, and the music. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good story, good acting, and a good story. I give it an A.

The movie is a good watch, but I think it is lacking something. It is slow, the film is a bit too long and there are some plot holes in the story. It is a good movie though and I am sure you will like it. If you like westerns you will like this one.

This movie is a very well-done story about a group of Cherokee Indians who find themselves trapped in the US. One of them, Tomahawk, has a gun and a good heart, but he's got to work with the Americans to survive. The American Indians are only interested in getting their land back and make no attempts to help the Cherokee Indians. The American Indians are a bunch of bandits and killers, and they just want to take the land. The story is pretty good and the acting is pretty good. I would recommend this movie for people who like movies about Indians. It's a great movie.

The movie had a good story but was very slow moving and very predictable. The movie was very violent. I was really impressed by the cast and I was surprised by the actors performance. This is a great movie that is a good film to watch.

This movie was not what I was expecting. I love westerns but this movie had a slow pace. The first half of the movie was a lot of boring talking. Then the second half was a lot of interesting talking. The film was well shot and had a good script. The plot was interesting. I think the first half was a bit slow but it was worth the watch. I would recommend this movie to everyone who enjoys a good western.

I like this film a lot. It's a true tale of two brothers who are fighting to survive in the wild. The film has some real beauty to it. The landscape is incredible, and the music is amazing. The acting is great, the story is great, and the scenery is incredible. I also like the ending, it's very good. I think that it's a great movie to watch. It's definitely not a film for everyone, but if you like westerns, then this is definitely a movie you should see.

Well, there are a lot of movie versions of the story of the 'Slovenian Man' and his motorcycle, but they are all different. This one, by Mr. Fedes, is not. It is one of the best. The story, while it is based on a real event, is not entirely accurate. It is mostly a thriller, and it is a good thriller. It has a good ending, and it is not too predictable. It is not as well made as some of the others, but it is better than most of the others. The acting is excellent, especially from Ms. Lola. She is beautiful, and I am sure she is a very fine actress. She is very beautiful, too. But she is more than just a pretty face. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Like most westerns, the film opens with a small town in Texas suffering from drought. During the drought, the townspeople witness a murder, and a young girl is taken to the city. However, the girl is not found by the police until nearly a month after the murder, and the murderer is arrested. A woman's identity is confirmed as the culprit, and she is charged. She is tried, convicted, and executed. This film is a western. It's not a film that has been done before. I've seen quite a few westerns. I think that this is a really good film. It is very well made. The cinematography is good. The photography and camera angles are all very well done. The cinematography is not a typical western camera. The camera is in a fixed position, so that the camera looks like it's looking at the actors. The actors all have great performances. They really do a good job. It's an excellent film. It's a really good film. I don't think that it is a really good film. It's a good film, but it's not a really good film. I give this film a B.

In its purest form, the western genre was a genre that didn't require a lot of dialog to make sense. There was always a story to be told. In essence, there were always two sides to the story, and the drama and the thrill that came with the characters in the story. In this film, John Wayne plays Billy the Kid, a young outlaw on the run from the law. His world is built on stories, and he is the best story teller. One night, while out on a killing spree, he is approached by a mysterious man named Joe. He tells Billy that he has been doing the same thing since he was a kid, and that he knows his best story. The story involves a boy and his father, and their life and death journey. There is no morality, and no consequences. It's a morality play, and it is one of the best films ever made. It is a film that never tires of telling the story, and it is not so much about the story as it is about the characters, and the interaction between them. The way the story unfolds is so clever, that it is a story you can watch over and over again, and never tire of. In a genre that needed to be rebooted, with films like "American History X" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" a new idea was needed. The western genre needed a new actor to tell its story, and "The Kid" fits the bill perfectly. John Wayne, who is always looking for that one role that can match up to his best work, has this story told. He is an actor that can take the best from any role he is given, and has done that in "The Kid". He does a fantastic job in the lead, and it is amazing to see the other actors play their parts. I loved watching the relationships between the characters. Each character had their own unique part to play in the story, and the chemistry between the actors in the film was fantastic. I was on the edge of my seat, because I knew I was going to watch a story told so well. The film is just fantastic, and I don't see why this film hasn't been seen more often. It has been well received, and has even been nominated for several Oscars. The only thing that is a little disappointing about this film is the acting. Some of the best performances are given by the three women who play the three women. This is just a brilliant film, and I think it will be seen for years to come.

I'm not a big fan of westerns, but this movie was different. I've read the book, and I loved it, but the movie didn't really have that kind of feel to it. The movie was good, but it wasn't the kind of movie I would buy, so I'd say it's worth a watch. I didn't like the movie because I thought the story was too long and boring, but it was still pretty good. I think the cast did a good job, especially Michael Shannon and Morgan Freeman. I thought they were good actors. I also think that the movie wasn't all that good, but it was good enough to watch. I think this is one of the better movies that I've seen in a while. I would recommend this movie to people who like westerns and western action movies. This movie is pretty good, and I would recommend it.

It's actually a lot better than I thought it would be. The first two thirds of the movie are very gripping and the rest is just as gripping. It's actually the type of movie that I would really like to watch again, but unfortunately I can't. It's really a great movie and definitely worth the watch.

If you have not seen this movie, you are missing out on a great movie. If you have seen it, you will be in for a treat. I have seen the movie twice and I plan on seeing it again. If you like westerns, this is for you. The movie is about a young woman who is kidnapped by a man who is supposed to be her husband. She is forced to work as a slave in order to get her freedom. I have seen a few movies about slavery, but this is one of the best I have ever seen. I am not sure what the movie is about, but the main characters, a young woman and a young man, are very believable. I love this movie and would recommend it to anyone.

This movie is well made and enjoyable. It's a western with a lot of adventure. There are many westerns that are actually better than this. It is certainly worth watching.

I enjoyed this film a lot. The action is well executed, the acting is good and the script is very good. I was not very impressed by the script, but I can't blame the director. I'm not a fan of Clint Eastwood, but I do think he did a good job in this film. The story is good, but it could have been better. The ending was not what I was expecting. I have no idea why the director chose to end the film like that. It was not a good ending to the film, but it was not a bad ending. It was just the wrong ending. I did not hate the ending, but I do not think it was the right one. Overall, I enjoyed the film. It was very well made, and the acting was good. The ending was not the right one, but it was not the wrong one either. Overall, I enjoyed the film, but I can't say I loved it. I will give it a 7 out of 10. It is a very good film, but it could have been better.

This is a very good movie. The story line is solid and believable. The scenery is beautiful and the actors give it a great performance. The only thing that bothered me was the ending. It was a little too abrupt. I'm not sure why the director decided to leave out the "thriller" part of the film. It seemed like he was going for a "hard-boiled" feel to the film. Overall, this is a good movie. I can see why it got a good response from the critics.
