Critic Reviews for American Gun
[It's] what happens when a director makes a movie based on what he imagines to be true, instead of what's actually so.
Martin internalizes everything, and Coburn must communicate only through pained looks. It's a tremendous performance.
Getting a lot of quality cinema out of a tight budget, Jacobs (Just One Night) takes some risks in the storytelling department that result in a film that encourages one to think long and hard about the subject of guns.
Audience Reviews for American Gun
All I can say about this film with out giving anything away is WOW. James Coburn played an excellent part, just a shame to see him in his elder years all crippled up with arthritis in his hands, watch closely and you will see it. This one shouldn't be missed. 3 1/2 stars
"I still believe in God...I just don't know what to make of him."-Martin Tillman (James Coburn)
First off and foremost, James Coburn was the man (RIP). Exellent drama and true to life. Lets you decide for yourself, are guns good, bad?
"Time is the great healer."-Anne Tillman (Barbara Bain)
For such a methodical, slow-paced drama, this had surprising, clever twists in the end. A great movie and watching it is the equivilent of pouring out a 40 oz. on the curb for James Coburn as it was his last before he passed away.
