O'Connor's direction grips hardest during tense action sequences, but any time Jane hasn't got her gun, the film and its atmosphere deflates.

Portman makes a convincing frontierswoman as she rides out to protect her home and family.

Jane Got a Gun successfully operates as a Western with its own flourishes of home-invasion plot threading and a unique role reversal take on the genre regarding gender

The personal relationships are pleasingly complex, characters you start off loathing you end up liking, and, of course, there's a terrific shootout in the end.

This is a good addition to the female-centric movies we have seen of late. Here's hoping there will be more to come.

Dusting itself off from a nightmare production, this western finally arrives to shoot, for the most part, straight and true. It certainly ain't no calamity Jane.

What is here is enjoyable if taken on its own terms, much of Jane Got a Gun playing out with a 1940s or '50s Hollywood lan I found more than satisfying.

Jane Got a Gun is visually stunning. [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]

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.

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.
April 24, 2016
It is enjoyable but no great classic.

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.
April 22, 2016
A gritty woman's perspective on tropes of the western genre, a lean action drama that is sparse yet sympathetic, and laconic but simmers with deep emotion.
April 21, 2016
O'Connor once again proves that he can mine femininity just as effectively as he explored masculinity in Pride and Glory (2008) and Warrior (2011).
April 21, 2016
A certain casualty of the ever-changing vision for this movie, is the lack of a palpable tone and identity, but thankfully there's a certain allure that ensures the viewer remains engaged.
April 20, 2016
A lean and gritty western.
