Yeah saw it in the previews for "Apocalypto". It looked pretty good. It's gonna be released in the first month of 2007 right?

Got this on Netflix, and watched it last night.

Its ok and it has great cinematography of beautiful scenery, but it was definitely lacking in a few areas, that I'll comment on as I think about the film over the next few days.  It had some symbolic elements but they lacked emphasis and the score though passable didn't help. Another quick thought no Western town to balance the wilderness aspect though it did have a wagon train camp and a railroad hell on wheels end of track sort of set that was wasted.

later with more.

There was so much I loved about this movie, but it definitely lacked in some areas. As you mentioned cigar, the cinematograhy and scenery were beautiful. They really succeded in this area. The first half hour of this film was riveting. Some of the best chase sequences I've seen in a long time.

My biggest gripe about the film is the way they handled the flash back sequences. I do not like how they revealed what happened in Seraphim Falls. It just seemed rushed to me. The whole movie you're thinking about what possibly could of happened there to piss off Carver (Liam Neeson). They have you thinking what Gideon (Pierce Brosnan) did was horrific. Yes, what happened was bad, but not as bad as how Carver was acting. This sequence took away from this otherwise powerful, and revengeful tale.

Overall, I loved the movie though, but it's not the classic it could have been. So many missed opportunities.

I agree, it even had some surrealistic elements to boot, but the whole just didn't add up.

More later.....

Is this flick even worth 1 viewing? I passed on this the other night, to rent Hannibal Rising(I know, don't laugh, I had to see how bad it was for myself). I've become gunshy with new movies, they're getting so bad.

Its worth a viewing, it helps to be able to analize what is the missing ingredient and what could have been done better. Last years "The Proposition" almost got there I think just the fact that it was Aussie based (and the score wasn't all that strong in my opinion, sorry Nick Cave fans) kinda makes it its own sub catagory.

Liam Neeson is somewhat believable in character, Brosnan a bit less so, it needed more "Western" color more Western sidekick type of supporting cast nobody stood out not even the mains, the cast as a whole just blends into the scenery, a good Western town set with at least a saloon and piano is almost a required touchstone for a Western. But it was very strong on Western landscape the other touchstone I'll give it that. The score combined with the actors lines just didn't reach that "Iconic" level we wish it would reach.

You are spot on about the use of the flashback sequence and I'll add that the Angelica Huston scene was flat also.

Maybe all I/we want are good well made modern Leone clones. lol
