Introspective. Retrospective. The Old West. The American Cowboy. A part of our heritage for which America has an enduring love.

Here is Costner, calm and careful, his skin these days only a little older with its new indentations and fine markings. And when he is like this on screen, he is perfect.

Some killing, but most violence is PG-13.

The thunderous climax -one of the muddiest, bloodiest and most chaotic gunfights of the 2000s -makes it clear that Kevin Costner's plaintive, patient, slightly overlong Western was only sitting for a spell to race toward the finish.

Range is handed a stunning period scope by Costner's directorial eye, while forming an unexpectedly tender core to help endear these character past their grizzled exterior.

An unbelievable old-fashioned western...

Thoroughly enjoyable and involving, Kevin Costner's Open Range is a beautifully made western about flawed heroes who believe in redemption, loyalty and respect.

Something like...It's a Wonderful Life, only rich in slaughter.

Costner finds in the Western something grand, familiar and new within a genre that clearly has some life in it yet.

While equally paying homage to directors Peckinpah, Eastwood, and Kurosawa, what makes Open Range special is that it's a love story, too. And one peopled by endearing characters we're inclined to care about when the bloodletting has finally ended.

Handsomely mounted, as you would expect, Open Range has a good deal to commend it.

Good for Costner: at the close of a summer cluttered with dumb action films, sequels and remakes, he's bucked the trend and put himself back in the saddle again.

By the end, I was thinking this is probably one of the best westerns made since Kevin Costner first hopped on a horse in "Silverado."

Open Range est tout simplement un bon vieux western qui fait plaisir voir.

... even though Costner's sense of a satisfying ending is a bit too ordinary and unimaginative, I found Open Range refreshing.

... needs a better story, better characters, better source material; and fewer aphorisms, fewer long glances and sweeping scores, fewer chunks of cheese.
