Finds a rather cunning way to make a brutishly straightforward scenario seem profoundly muddled.

Jane Got A Gun has the promise of a strong female leading Western; the by the numbers end result doesn't even barely eclipse the central trio's last time on screen.

A rare misfire within Gavin O'Connor's otherwise solid body of work...

It is hard to know what kind of audience this film was made for.

The slow-burn build-up to a final showdown is, of course, a standard Western narrative device, but director Gavin O'Connor repeatedly defuses tension by cutting away to convoluted flashbacks revealing the characters' emotionally tangled backstories.

Jane Got A Gun, even with it's great moments, isn't more than a discrete, rushed and even cowardly western. [Full review in Spanish]

Jane Got A Gun never really gives any depth to any of it's characters. [Full review in Spanish]

The performances the main cast delivers are what stands out most of this film. Portman is believable, Joel Edgerton is not that charismatic and Ewan McGregor is an interesting villain. [Full review in Spanish]

Despite its impeccable cast and a promising vengeful concept, Jane Got a Gun will have you begging to be taken to greener pastures long before its 98-minute duration concludes.

That the film even got made and is reasonably competent should be seen as a victory in itself.

This Jane is packing heat, but the film's love triangle is ice cold.

With its grindingly low-key tension and unusual perspectives, this Western has a chance to revamp the genre in intriguing ways.

The film itself just isn't very engaging, in part because Portman is so frustratingly passive for much of it.

Is it possible that Natalie Portman can't act?

No great passion is being conjured up on screen, just an exhausted sense of relief that things might not be as bad as all that. Which is what you might say for the film as a whole after all its troubles.

It is enjoyable but no great classic.

There's hardly a scene you watch without wondering, and doubting, if Ramsay would have done it quite this way.

It's all perfectly passable, but rather perfunctory ...

This was a troubled production. Scottish director Lynne Ramsay quit days before shooting began and there were late changes made to the cast. In certain respects, the replacement director Gavin O'Connor has done an impressive job.
