Boss Spearman (Robert Duvall) and his cowhands Charley (Kevin Costner) and Mose (Abraham Benrubi) are driving cattle across a large expanse of country. When Mose ventures into a sparse village to buy a few necessities, he is met with violent hostility from Denton Baxter (Michael Gambon), an affluent landowner, and his right-hand man, Poole (James Russo). When Mose doesn't come back, Boss and Charley realize he's in trouble, so they plot to get him back and get revenge on those who captured him.

Audience Reviews for Open Range

  • May 01, 2016
    Shamelessly recycles nearly every classic western trope in american history. The scrpit is embarrassingly trite too. Kevin Costner manages to somehow take his vacuous acting ability to a whole new level of retardation. There is almost something hypnotically shallow about watching him perform. I felt sorry for Duvall, but then I really don't think he gives much of a shit these days. Open Range might have had all the dramatic punch of a "little house on the prairie" episode; except it's about five times as long and diluted with unfathomably shallow and redundant "filler" material that's oddly reminiscent of some cornball 1950s Disney movie. The only thing Kevin Costner has chemistry with is plywood.

    Kevin Costner not only impresses me with his great acting but also his great direction. Open Range features great in depth character development and great acting by its leads (Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall) and greatly filmed gunfights. This is a must see for any fan of westerns.

    As a Western character study you couldn't do much better, the give and take between Duvall and Costner, the old man and the kid (10 years on), the glue holding the piece, with Bening doing very well as a strong frontier woman. And Gambon is a surprise as the ruthless cattle baron. Well worth your time.

    A slow moving western in the tradition of 'Unforgiven' and Costner's own 'Dances with Wolves' this builds up to a bloody climax with a great shoot out. Costner is good but Duvall steals the acting honours and the relationship between them is totally believable. A nice film that's well directed and acted.
