The western is back, and with writer/director Lawrence Kasdan at the reins, you're glad to see it.
March 10, 2010
Called "revisionist" upon release in a bizarre misuse of the term, Silverado is neither something new nor something paying homage but rather a hollow facsimile

It's like a colossal buffet: You take what you want and leave the rest, readily forgiving the worst of it because the best just tastes so good.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Filled with enough stock characters and B-film plotlines for a dozen mediocre Westerns.

Should by rights swim in hokiness, but it's a bumptious classic.

A big stampede of a movie with ideas and scenes thundering off in dozens of directions.

Agreeable but never compelling.
April 9, 2008
Real rewards of the film are in the visuals and rarely has the West appeared so alive, yet unlike what one carries in his mind's eye. Ida Random's production design is thoroughly convincing in detail.

This takes as its subject the Western itself; but what could have been a bankrupt exercise is saved by exuberance, goodwill, and sheer excitement.

The actors shift gears effortlessly, playing their parts with seriousness when the situation calls for it, but also enjoying those moments that are intended to be fun.

May 20, 2003
A sweeping, glorious-looking western that's at least a full generation removed from the classic films it brings to mind.

A wonderful homage to the Westerns of old, with some hip, contemporary twists.
| Original Score: 3/5

A good movie, although it's sometimes too antiseptic for what a Western should be. There's some great shoot-out scenes.
