The story is just not strong enough to carry the entire movie.

It is as though Harris could not decide whether he was making the classic western of his boyhood dreams, or merely a pastiche of it. The result, falling somewhere between the two, ends up being neither here nor there.

Really, it's like watching three amigos passing the time of day in New Mexico while waiting for a call from Cronenberg.

Uma produção correta e que prende a atenção especialmente graças à dinâmica entre Harris e Mortensen, mas que, no fim das contas, não exibe nada que a torne diferente do convencional.

Ed Harris' howler of a vanity piece.

It was at times incredibly slow and even poorly edited, and I've never understood the appeal of Renee Zelwegger.

It isn't a bad film, but the pacing drags it down to the level of just another horse opera when it could have been so much more.

Sometimes Appaloosa seems bent on exploiting the standard cliches of the western genre ...while at others it seems striving to be a modernist update full of ambiguity ...

Very disappointing ---- I was so in the mood for a great western!

We just want the movie to ride off in the sunset to rest among all the other disappointing westerns in Boot Hill.

...so old-fashioned it even carries a troubling dose of old-fashioned sexism.

It lacks the substantial story that would make it memorable.

Emotionally Appaloosa shoots blanks.

After Appaloosa establishes its slightly modern characters in a traditional setting, it has nowhere to go but toward the completely expected.

Harris directs with a steady hand and sharp eye for the best in his fellow actors.

Mortensen should certainly do another western, soon. Preferably he should do one with a real sense of danger to go along with all the neat, tidy, highfalutin' honor and decency.

With a cast and director like this, you would expect greatness. What you really should expect is a cup of coffee so you can stay awake.

I love a good western, so I am not very enamored with Appaloosa. I guess you can say I just want to be friends with it.

There is plenty of plot but not enough story. And the film unfolds in short scenes strung together that beg to be expanded into more detailed examinations of behavior.
