Great movie

Best new western I have seen in long time. Anyone that doesn't like this movie I don't understand. Definitely a new fistful of dollars.

Good but not great

Vastly overwritten - one of the hazards of a writer/director - and, in this case - editor, too. Oh dear... With three individuals with three different perspective, it could have been rather better.

The score by Jeff Grace, although excellent in places, doesn't know if it wants to be a western or a spaghetti western (overtly Morricone) and gives conflicting messages. The movie is not quite a spaghetti western although, with a few tweaks, it could have been. Some of the scenes with SW music cues play against the on-screen action and invite a sardonic comedy perspective which isn't really justified.

Some scenes are comedic although more in the style of slapstick than dark SW humour and, really, not needed.

As the movie progresses, the music becomes increasingly SW and the theme of revenge - one of my absolute favourites! - comes well to the fore.

But who ever heard of a 'man with no name' called Paul? Oh dear... And the town only seems to have eight inhabitants.

Ethan Hawke is excellent but not quite Clint. John Travolta has lost some weight and must be desperate for parts although perhaps the script looked better than the end result.

Star of the show, apart from the dog, is Taissa Farmiga who has a wonderful part and plays it well.

In all, this is a nice, easy-to-watch action western. Switch off all critical facilities (and tell me how to do that!) and you'll enjoy it, but it falls needlessly short of being really great.

FInally, someone's making decent spaghetti westerns again

Almost a great film, loses focus when the actors get too cute with modern slang but, all characters are interesting, the audience is never sure what's going to happen next, action is well paced, and a great 'what just happened here' ending. Chaotic, surprising and violent as I think the old West often was. Please make more of these.
