Critic Reviews for In a Valley of Violence
West, making his first foray into westerns, doesn't control the tone. Its somber, bone-dry gruffness crumbles to dust, only to be replaced by adolescent jokiness.
Announces itself as an unabashed B-movie from its pre-credits scene ... and never worries itself about being anything deeper than that.
In a Valley of Violence does not take itself too seriously (a great asset), but it also takes itself just seriously enough that it's not empty snarky parody.
Spiked with dryly funny exchanges and lovingly shot by Eric Robbins on 35-millimeter film, "In a Valley of Violence" nevertheless feels exasperatingly two-dimensional.
A by-the-numbers spaghetti Western that's kind of slow and uneventful-and the world has no shortage of those.
Audience Reviews for In a Valley of Violence
Hawke is brilliant in this great western film. The film is brilliantly directed and you can see the craft in each shot or scene. The western genre has slowly crept back into the limelight with not much success which is a shame. This indie film deserved more attention and an audience it may not reach. Travolta reminds everyone that he can hold his own and deserves another return to the big screen. One of my top ten picks for 2016.
