Strong and heart-felt performances by Billy Crudup and Woody Harrelson make Hi-Lo Country an immensely appealing drama.

A nostalgia trip in more ways than one, successfully recalling the days when meaty westerns were a frequent part of the movies' bill of fare.

A perfunctory, often dreary love-triangle melodrama.

Everything is in place for a mythic drama, except the players, who don't begin to fill the boots of the archetypes they're meant to be.

Woody Harrelson's surprisingly credible, yippie-ki-yay performance as the last of the old-time cowboys is the only reason - but just reason enough - to see THE HI-LO COUNTRY.

For all its deficiencies and misplaced emphases, The Hi-Lo Country still offers plenty of action and color.
