A western bromance.
November 18, 2008
A terrific bread-and-butter Western.

Appaloosa is ideally suited for fans of the genre for whom quiet drama speaks as loud as big guns.
November 11, 2008
A better than average western in the Clint Eastwood tradition
November 9, 2008
Ed Harris' howler of a vanity piece.
November 9, 2008
The film's subtle humor and detailed character studies reflect careful attention to detail and superb craftsmanship.
November 8, 2008
No ordinary oater.
November 7, 2008
It was at times incredibly slow and even poorly edited, and I've never understood the appeal of Renee Zelwegger.
November 7, 2008
Ed Harris does it better than anybody.
November 3, 2008
A fine cast produces a surprisingly low-key outing. It sports a plot like a Western from 45 years ago, but pacing familiar from LONESOME DOVE.

Viggo Mortensen's brilliantly cool performance engenders enough good will to see "Appaloosa" through its pokey meandering to an intriguingly philosophical conclusion: a look at modern outsourcing, capitalism and progress through a Western prism.
October 18, 2008
A gentle, warmly human and quietly compelling western with a wry sense of humour and some engaging performances from a group of fine actors.

The first hour bored me nearly to tears, but I'm glad I stuck it out, since the last half hour is fresh, diverting and original in the context of a neo-Western. Or a neo anything.
October 18, 2008
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.
October 16, 2008
The film is more trenchant character study than thrilling showdown, and it confounds as many generic expectations as it fulfills.
October 13, 2008
A welcome return to the roots of the western genre.
October 10, 2008
Appaloosa takes the traditional notion of a lone lawman fighting injustice and turns it successfully on its head.
