The Coens imbue this simple tale with their trademark quirkiness and wry humour.

I have never been so frustrated with a movie as I was with No Country for Old Men. I hope I never am again.

Death always gets the last laugh -- and what makes the Coens so remarkable is how they dare to cackle at the punch lines.

Morose vagueness will get No Country for Old Men called a classic, instead of what it is: an often effective but pompous grindhouser. Its pretensions are so big, you couldn't fit them in Texas.

Only the Coen brothers could make a film so impressively brutal and yet so understated as this. It helps that the set-up is so fiendishly simple. Blood simple, you might say.

So, yes, you should probably see No Country for Old Men, even if it does bow out with a baffling little coda featuring an old timer's meditation on the fact that he's estranged from his father.

Just as the movie is beginning to conform to genre expectations (like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre meets Fargo), the Coens have the guts, and indeed the smarts, to pull it in an entirely different direction.

Haunting, hard- bitten and absurdly involving.

Spanish actor Javier Bardem should leave audiences gasping with his stone-cold performance in the blood-spattered saga No Country For Old Men.

The movie rarely loses its grip and is a remarkable accomplishment.

The Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men is a rare example of a too-faithful adaptation of a novel, one that stubbornly refuses to explore and expound upon what the text readily provides.

It's been a long time since Joel and Ethan Coen took themselves this seriously. Perhaps since 1991's Barton Fink. The result is suspenseful and uncompromising.

The cinematic American West is vast enough for us to fill with our imaginations, taking a simple shadow play and transforming it into an eternal campfire tale.

Hallelujah! Men is so good it takes your breath away, even when you're not holding it during the scary parts.

No Country for Old Men is a great Texas film. It is great unequivocally, but Lone Star pride is a rare opportunity in Hollywood.

Cormac McCarthy's amazing novel was blessed with a usually impossible faithful adaption that translated the power of the words and weaved them into cinema.

Films this good come along once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

There's nothing extraordinary about No Country for Old Men -- except, of course, the spectacle of two great directors in total command of their craft.

A mostly absorbing tale of the hunter being subverted into the hunted, No Country For Old Men deserves to be lauded for its gripping, relentless thrills rather than its flawed denouement.
