I never watched the series. I was told people who didn't watch the series would still enjoy this movie. SO WRONG. The whole movie just felt like an extra episode to a DEAD series.
In anger I quit on the show halfway through season 3 when it was announced that it was being cancelled so Milch could do John from Cincinnati. Finding time on my hands recently, started from the beginning and binge watched the whole series and now the movie. Was told by a few people it was disappointing, but I completely disagree. Milch gave me exactly what I needed to wipe my face from the spit left there by the season 3, and for a long time, the show's finale. A great reunion with characters I love and business finished. I suppose one can pick apart certain aspects of the story, but I think they are missing what this was about. It was a love letter from Milch and the cast to the fans. A walk down memory lane to a satisfying conclusion. It feels like some people can't appreciate a show or movie anymore unless it is dark, or the ending leaves the audience broken or debating what happened. My only disappointment is they couldn't figure in a 3rd character for Garret Dillahunt to play.
It was like being invited to a party with old friends that you hadn't seen for such a stretch, you hadn't realized until this night how much you miss them. Probably the only really successful series reunion show I've ever seen. Good plot, brilliant dialogue and great characters. It was so much better than most of what I've been streaming lately.
Finally the series gets the ending it deserves. Faithfully to the shows original framework which all of the main characters given a suitable chance to shine!
Welcome the fuck back, cocksuckers. Best ending you probably could hope for and it fits pretty well with the time frame
Finally a great ending to such an excellent series!
Like slipping into an old pair of shoes; a little dogged, but completely comfortable. Having this on in the background shot me back to simpler times; enjoying the mud-street poetry and slavish devotion to honouring the TV series' tone and look. Deadwood: The Movie is a hard film to review; seemingly a feature-length finale more than a standalone movie, but it is a fitting end, beautiful, bawdy, sure-footed and honeyed in dialogue. As a movie, nothing much happens and it's glorious. As a coda, it's a warm bath.
As you might expect, if you haven't seen the TV series, ‘Deadwood: The Movie' probably won't hold much appeal and might even be a bit confusing; however, if you were a fan, then it's a more than welcome return to the iconic town and characters. Even though it was never going to feel like there was enough time to tie up all loose ends -- indeed, there may still be some things that don't quite satisfy as much as you'd hoped – thanks to the return of the main cast and a storyline that continues where the series left off, it still remains a nostalgic experience that should mostly please.
A predictable yawn. Not much thought went into this. Mostly, it's a gleaning of plot points from the series and an effort to weave them together into something like a narrative. The characters are interesting to see once again; but the bloom is off the rose, and this was probably not a great idea.
Deadwood is quite simply one of the greatest TV shows ever created. Murder and death never sounded so good nor looked so magnificent. The wild and crazy years of the Dakota territories before coming a state were laced with unforgettable characters and sublime dialogue. It sadly ended before its time, but we now have a feature length film to ease the pains. This film takes place ten years later as statehood is being celebrated for South Dakota. All the characters are back, except for a couple as the actors died. The story line is there, George Hearst is back and trying to buy property to extend his business interests, but this film about the characters. They are so beautifully written and performed. It's poetry with gunfights. A glorious sight indeed. By the finish I was satiated but also feel the story has come to a satisfying end.
