    you started with the first 10 pages of No Country for Old Men and then called it yours? Great film, though.

    I have to say that this was a very good story and it seem like more of an authentic western to me. It is not a typical Hollywood film, so don’t be overly critical and enjoy the movie.
  • Not a western, but a tribute!

    If you squint long enough, you might start to look like the titular character. But you also might start to see an original spin on the Old-West drama that may be the best in a decade. This is not a Michael Bay testosterone flick, and, out of generosity, I’ll call the pace “considered”—but it serves-up tension so subtly, that as you’re drawn into Henry’s story, it starts to feel like a half-thriller in a manner reminiscent of that frontier-masterpiece, “Unforgiven.” Yes… some of the plot lines are predictable… but if you’re watching a Western without expecting at least a little of this, you’re off-genre. Instead, Old Henry offers you a new, slightly unexpected, way to connect to the myth of the frontier and the outlaw, and does so without ever over-reaching or underselling the idea.

    Drawn by the many glowing reviews, we ended up wondering if all the reviews are fake. This is a slow, predictable, grind to a boring, predictable ending. Son, I am disappoint.

    I really enjoyed this movie. Nice to see that they can still make good western movies. It’s not on the same level as The Wild Bunch or High Plains Drifter, but I’d put this up there with Open Range and Tombstone. Even my wife who hates westerns liked this film.
