Jane Got a Gun is a textbook-standard Western and nothing more.

If Jane Got a Gun had been interested in giving its main character any power of her own, instead of acquiring a weapon, she might have gotten the heck out of Dodge and joined Furiosa and Rey for a party out in the desert.

Jane Got a Gun just leaves you wondering, Why isn't it better? And perhaps, even, ever so slightly grateful that it isn't worse.

Though I still have faith in modern Westerns as a whole, I realize that Jane Got a Gun is one of many that will likely be forgotten in time.

This isn't a terrible movie; it certainly isn't the train wreck bomb of a release I've heard it described as. It just isn't anything great or especially engaging worth recommending.

Jane lacks a strong vision, doing justice to neither the camp potential of its title nor the sophistication of its structure. She's got a gun, all right, but it's shooting blanks.

Finds a rather cunning way to make a brutishly straightforward scenario seem profoundly muddled.
September 8, 2016
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.
May 15, 2016
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]
May 9, 2016
Jane Got A Gun never really gives any depth to any of it's characters. [Full review in Spanish]
April 24, 2016
The film itself just isn't very engaging, in part because Portman is so frustratingly passive for much of it.
April 24, 2016
Is it possible that Natalie Portman can't act?
April 24, 2016
There's hardly a scene you watch without wondering, and doubting, if Ramsay would have done it quite this way.
April 22, 2016
Not just confusing, predictable and mis-sold as a feminist film, the calamity that is Jane Got A Gun is hobbled by the dullest of plots.
April 21, 2016
The female lead gives it fire power, but Jane Got a Gun is far from a crack shot.
April 21, 2016
Uncomplicated but unremarkable, Jane won't blow anyone away.
April 21, 2016
It's not a really poor film, just a really uninteresting one.
