> Revenge for a revenge.
It is a Danish western revenge flick set in the American soil, so 99 per cent it was in the English language. Well, in my opinion, it is underrated for sure. It was not anything stylish like QT’s recent western films, but quite usual presentation yet very majestic. The story takes place in a couple of days in a small town in the 1871. The turnaround in the theme was great. Initially, it leaves an impression of a revenge based tale, but later becomes oil warfare, something quite resembles the original situation of the American at that time.
In the last few weeks I have been watching lots of comedies, dramas and other soft themed films, so suddenly I felt too much violence from this. But as always I get used to it after some time in the watch. Great cast and their great performances. The writing was superb along with the settings. I watched it quite late, but the best western I have seen in the recent time, so I strongly recommended for western fans and others who’re seeking a fine entertainment.
This is a decent enough Danish-made spaghetti western. Nothing more and nothing less. It could easily have been a young Clint Eastwood in this movie. Instead the lead character is Mads Mikkelsen who makes a quite reasonable performance as far as I am concerned.
I have to say that it felt a bit funny when the characters spoke Danish in the first parts of the movie. It did add a bit of special touch, at least for me, to the movie though. I guess that people who do not understand Danish may be less thrilled about that though.
The movie itself is a fairly straightforward good guy versus bad guy revenge story. It is a good old-fashioned Western without any silly complicated plot and without trying to make any attempts to show the “real” west or put a social spin on it. It is clearly made to entertain those who like classical spaghetti westerns. Personally I find it nice that someone are still willing, and can get funding, to make those kind of movies. I liked both Mads Mikkelsen and Eva Green, although her role is mute, as well as Jeffery Dean Morgan as the bad guy.
Having said that, the movie falls a bit short of being a great spaghetti western. It never really manages to create that grim atmosphere around the lead character when he embarks on the road of revenge and I have to say that the end fight felt a bit meh.
Nevertheless this is a decent enough movie which should please most fans of classical old Western movies. I for one consider it a worthwhile addition to my collection.
entertaining bleak and dark Western
this is probably one of the best western in years. It’s a dark and harrowing film, a la “the proposition” or “unforgiven”. This movie is not for the squeamish: innocent people are killed without a thought, and the film does a good job portraying the lawlessness and “anything goes” ethos of the times. Mads Mikkelsen is excellent as a hardworking taciturn Danish immigrant who’s spent years trying to make a living in this land of opportunity. Unfortunately, tragedy strikes when he brings his family to the country, and then the rest of the film is basically about survival and revenge. At 1.5 hours, the pacing is good, and there are no unnecessary scenes or fat bogging down the story. Action scenes are realistic and very well done, and there’s some pretty good cinematography throughout. All in all, a very well crafted and entertaining Western!
Best Western Movie in Years
Great movie, great performances, particularly Mads Mikkelsen, a extraordinary actor capable of unique performances, like Casino Royal or The Hunt. The best thing about this movie is that is a simple western story, without CGI or complicated plot, is just hard, straight and cruel, making you remind off certain westerns made in the 70’s, but this one has 1h30 minutes, it doesn’t borrow you with landscapes or infinity long horse rides. The only bad thing i have to say about this picture is Jefrey Dean Morgan performance, its just bad and incapable of captivating the audience. Just imagine if Mikkelsen was the bad guy, what villain it will be. So please, do this European guys a favor and watch this movie, not only you will not regret but you will enjoy a movie made in 2014 without CGI, naked Girls, catch phrases or dumb script.
