Frequent gun violence in quirky '90s Western.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 3, 2007
Raimi's movie borrows heavily from classic spaghetti westerns, but Raimi has a style of his own, and plenty of it.
June 24, 2006
A deadpan black comedy, Sam Raimi's fast-paced movie looks and sounds like a Leone oater but more so.
September 2, 2005
Raimi's gimmicky but endlessly inventive direction gives it plenty of gas, and the excellent cast takes it the rest of the way.

Awesome western. Raimi's technique heightens the standard gunfight drama.

Mr. Raimi is limited by a sketch mentality, which means his jokes tend to be over long before his films end. But his tastes for visual mischief and crazy, ill-advised homage can still make for sly, sporadic fun.

This film is wonderfully directed by Sam Raimi, who makes every shot pop up. From the gripping opening scene to the weird finale, every scene is full of Raimi's great visual style.

Even when the script for The Quick and the Dead runs out of surprises, which is very early, director Sam Raimi keeps the action fast and funny, though he falters when he strains for seriousness.

Another one of those movies meant for movie freaks.

The whole film has tremendous visual style, and the frequent bursts of violence are delivered with a clever and often hilarious use of special effects.
