Slower than tumbleweed rolling over prairie coal molasses
Great casting, cinematography, sets and location, but novice writer and director Thomas Bezucha made this one a very unnecessarily slow burner. The 113 runtime was way too long for this story, and felt twice as long with the slow pacing, long dragged out scenes and unnecessary still shots. If you watched this at 1.2x speed, it’d be bearable. The screenplay needed a good 20-30 mins edited/cut out. The sound/score could’ve also been better. Not sure if it was Costner’s character, or he was bored during filming, because this wasn’t one of his finest performances – by a long shot. Never mind all the bogus 9’s and 10’s, this is an honest and very generous 6/10 from me.
The new Straw Dogs ?
Back in the 80’s and 90’s Kevin Costner was one of the biggest movie stars on the planet . He starred in some brilliant ( if not long ) movies but for some reason started to get a negative reputation and I’m not quite sure why . Perhaps Waterworld is to blame ? . Watching Let Him Ho you can see the man is still a very good actor but in this , he is outshone by two women.
Costner plays a retired sheriff and Diane Lane plays his wife, who ate grieving over the death of their son, they then set out to find their only grandson.
The biggest compliment I can give this film is that it reminds me a lot of Straw Dogs .
The couple have the almost impossible task of dealing with the hillbilly Weboy family who is lead by Blanche who is played brilliantly by Lesley Manville . In fact so brilliantly, she steals the show from Lane and Costner.
I enjoyed this much more than I expect.
For the most part it’s a slow burner but there are plenty of tense action scenes in it to not make it dull.
Not bad at all .
