Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Filled with enough stock characters and B-film plotlines for a dozen mediocre Westerns.

Kasdan resorts to a TV-like shorthand, substituting shtick for personality.

Film Freak Central

Called "revisionist" upon release in a bizarre misuse of the term, Silverado is neither something new nor something paying homage but rather a hollow facsimile

A big stampede of a movie with ideas and scenes thundering off in dozens of directions.

This is a story, you will agree, that has been told before. What distinguishes Kasdan's telling of it is the style and energy he brings to the project.

A good movie, although it's sometimes too antiseptic for what a Western should be. There's some great shoot-out scenes.

It's like a colossal buffet: You take what you want and leave the rest, readily forgiving the worst of it because the best just tastes so good.

Real rewards of the film are in the visuals and rarely has the West appeared so alive, yet unlike what one carries in his mind's eye. Ida Random's production design is thoroughly convincing in detail.

A wonderful homage to the Westerns of old, with some hip, contemporary twists.

The actors shift gears effortlessly, playing their parts with seriousness when the situation calls for it, but also enjoying those moments that are intended to be fun.
