Good but should have been better

This is a Good movie (although we could spend days debating what 'good' actually means'). It's a modern western (which I usually hate). The concept is brilliant but it lacks a bit in the execution. One reason, perhaps is that the director also edited it (thank goodness he didn't write it!) so some parts are a little obscure.

It's low budget but with an excellent cast - Patrick Wilson, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo and Jim Belushi - and altogether very well done. And Juan Navazo does a great job with the music.

There are more than a few twists along the way, a few high action moments and a few 'if they knew that they wouldn't do this' and 'that would never happen' moments so your suspension of disbelief goes out the window. It's sloppy writing/direction but it happens in so many movies, so maybe we're immune to it. I call it the Commando effect after the Schwarzenegger movie (love him!) where at least 100K rounds are fired at him and not one hits. You get the idea, but maybe we're just a nation (world) of un-critical, non-thinking couch potato movie watchers. I dunno.


I struggle to find the 'point' of the title. 'The List' might have been a better/more apt title and more could have been made of that idea (you'll understand when/if you watch it). It sort of splits the theme of the movie in two which, perhaps, is why it's not as cohesive as it could be.

It drifts off in a direction you maybe didn't think of (which is good) but the writer, Nils Lyew, needs to work on theme and plot development.

It's beautifully shot and often makes some ballsy moves, but it's confusingly constructed from a narrative perspective and ultimately both hollow and lacking a point.

Although 'The Hollow Point', a relatively low-budget and non-descript neo-western, includes a couple of riskily ballsy surprises, relies on a few entertainingly scenery-chewing performances and is absolutely beautifully shot - I seriously can't stress how staggeringly good the flick looks considering its size and stature, its narrative is so haphazardly constructed and lacking in almost any form of thematic through-line that it's actually quite a challenge to even understand how each element of the plot ties together, let alone become invested in any of the proceedings or characters caught up in them; seriously, there are several core players who's importance in the story doesn't become apparent until very late in the game, the lead love interest isn't established as such before perhaps the third act and even then her connection with the protagonist isn't ever explored, and there are times when people are introduced in the very same scene during which they play a major part in a plot-point that asks you to either care about or previously know them, but it's really this fragmented feel applied to the narrative that kills the pace and engagement of the piece as it transforms it into an utterly passive and, at times, frankly frustratingly confusing experience which ultimately lacks a point and is generally pretty hollow. 4/10

Wishes it was Blood Simple

A lot of great actors and great performances. Mediocre script. I kept thinking the writer must have watched Coen Brothers Blood Simple one too many times (if that is really possible). Ian McShane is great and the movie is literally loaded with good actors and actresses but it just doesn't quite hit the mark. Worth watching but not great.
