Critic Reviews for Black 47
Black 47 feels more like a small screen misfire than the grand cinematic epic that this rich story deserves.
Daly's restrained, pared-down style is the opposite of flashy exploitation cinema, but watching these bastions of lethally repressive British rule get some overdue comeuppance is similarly stirring.
By the time it ends on a note of intimate ambiguity, it's hard not to wish that Black 47 had expressed more shades of gray.
Not only is Lance Daly's newest feature a rollicking western with fantastic action and excellent performances, it also demonstrates how a film's subject matter can add much-needed pathos and nuance to a genre. Colour me impressed.
Solemn in its tenor but impassioned in its heart, it's more effective, rousing and involving than its blend of real-life hardship and hearty genre might sound.
