Audience Reviews for Silver City

  • Mar 11, 2012
    There's no doubt that John Sayles has made better films than "Silver City", but that doesn't mean that his film is inferior. No, it has a great deal to offer, such as a top-notch cast, clever writing, and spot-on editing. The film's pacing and inconsistent camerawork may try the patience of some, but there is an engaging story here.

    Although I appreciate the efforts to implore the audience to see George Dubya in Chris Cooper's character, it's all a little too obvious. Not to mention the rest of the acting is sort of horrible at times and it's too long. It also seems more like a made for TV movie than a feature film.

    Tries hard, but doesn't come to much.

    not hugely entertaining but with it being very intelligent it holds your interest right up until the end credits. chris cooper was brilliant as the candidate for senator. kinda reminds you of george bush when you see him speaking in public. must've modelled himself on the very man. there's some very individual characters such as daryl hannahs maddy pilager, sister of coopers character who is really a bit mad and dangerous with her bow and arrow. i think alot of people simply didn't get this or didn't want to get it due to it's runtime and pace put together. i'd say watch this when you've got some time on your hands. it needs your full attention to be appreciated
