Entertaining Western

Appaloosa (2008) is a western film starring Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Renee Zellweger, and Jeremy Irons. This movie did so many things right. First I'll go over what I liked. First of all, the cast did a great job with their roles. I especially loved Zellweger and Mortensen, they both had really interesting characters and they did a wonderful job at portraying them. It's of course true that this is a western film, but it is also a character study. These characters are not the usual stereotypical ones you typically see in western movies. That's why i really loved these characters, they had depth and I was actually interested in their stories and why they were how they were. Jeremy Irons plays the villain, becuase every western must have a proper villain, and Irons is a very good actor to play such a character. The writing is interesting. I loved the dialogue between Zellweger and the two main men, Harris and Mortensen, that was where the script stood out and where depth was given to the characters. I suggest this film to anyone, western fan or not, I think anyone can and will enjoy this movie. 8/10.

Timeless trust and betrayal.

Appaloosa is a classical western in a modern suit. It seems like Ed Harris wanted to show the world that he could make a real good traditional western and that some producers, directors and casters have missed out not giving him the main part in such a movie. And right he did, also asking his favorite actors to join in, and Harris himself is shining. Seems like they had a lot of fun.

The main subject in Appaloosa, besides the classical struggle between good and evil, is trust and betrayal in human relations. There are of course good guys and girls and the bad one's, but in this story none of the characters really seem to be either, except for one or two perhaps. So in the end, the only good guy gets to put and end to what ever is wrong or evil. If there's a moral, that's all there is to it.

I'm writing this after watching the film for the third time, and I seem to forget how it goes and ends every time. I suppose that makes it quite a good film with a subtle story about love and hate, trust and betrayal.

First rate western from Ed Harris, exceptional film

Appaloosa is an excellent western directed and starring Ed Harris. This is my favorite modern western to come out after Clint Eastwood's masterpiece Unforgiven. The film looks sharp and is a very original, intelligent western with a few interesting twists and turns, well developed characters, powerhouse performances and a story that flows very well. Ed Harris and Viggo Mortenson have great chemistry and work very well together as Sheriff Virgil Cole and his deputy Everett Hitch. Renee Zellweger gives a very good performance as love interest Ms. French. Jeremy Irons is a great villain and a very intelligent and interesting character. A brief, but memorable appearance is made by Lance Hendrikson(one of my favorite actors). While there is plenty of violence in this picture, it is not a shoot em' up western. However, Appaloosa is a remarkable film that is absolutely top shelf with lots of depth, psychology and is extremely well put together overall. This film is very under rated in my opinion and Ed Harris and company absolutely deserved some Academy awards nominations for making this remarkable film.
