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.

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

This takes as its subject the Western itself; but what could have been a bankrupt exercise is saved by exuberance, goodwill, and sheer excitement.

A sweeping, glorious-looking western that's at least a full generation removed from the classic films it brings to mind.

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.
