“If you are planning to see a western movie, you can skip u0026quot;The hateful eightu0026quot; (which in my opinion was crap) and see this instead. This movie is a modern time western in many ways including clothing, scenery and theme.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe direction of photography is very good. Artistic sometimes yet efficient. The music pad adds to the atmosphere without being in the way. The pace of the film is the appropriate. Not to hasty and certainly not boring.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut the major asset of the movie is the performance from the 2 leads. Laurence Fishburne takes his role seriously and portraying the villain with finesse. Thomas Jane looks good too and his performance is solid.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot it resembles that of a western. It is a little bit on the naive side but it works. The movie has emotions and suspense. Obviously I wonu0026#39;t spoil you the ending but it might needed an extra (obvious?) scene that you might miss.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall: You donu0026#39;t need a budget made of millions to make a good movie. Good camera work. Good performances and directing and you have what it takes.”
