O'Connor's movie is too sentimental and self-serious to add much of note to the mythos, but Portman embodies her character's grief no less movingly than her forebears.

The movie isn't terrible, so it can't qualify as a hate-watch. It's just dull.

At times, Jane Got A Gun comes perilously close to staying passive-to becoming A Gun Was Gotten By Jane.

As stripped-down, revisionist Westerns go, "Jane Got A Gun" may not have reinvented the wagon wheel, but it rolls out as a sturdy, well-crafted genre piece despite its rocky road to the screen.

Whatever feminist angle the film might have once aspired to is lost in its listless shuffle.
January 29, 2016
A Western with potential for feminist table-turning and old-fashioned violence, "Jane Got a Gun" is a major letdown. Despite being co-produced by Portman, the movie sells her character short at nearly every turn.

Jane Got a Gun is a slow fuse of a film that burns to a whimper instead of an explosion.

The problem with the film is that it never quite finds that final spark of inspiration that might have made it worth seeing, let alone producing in the first place, and it is further hampered by some clunkiness in the storytelling department.

It's hard not to watch the somber Jane without thinking that this is one of those cases where the making-of could be better - and definitely more fun - than the final product.
January 25, 2016
This poor little movie fires blanks.

Jane Got a Gun manages to tell a modest - you might say highly inconsequential - yarn that's not even lightly spiced with ideas, circumspection, interesting characters or basic logic. It's a film that just... happens.
