It's not particularly congruent, but thanks to two terrific performances and director Logan Miller's determination to make his own kind of music, Sweetwater packs one hell of a punch.

The west has never been less gritty, less pulpy than it is here, with the locale fading into the background when it should be a character in its own right.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 30, 2013
This oater with shades of Weird West comic books has a plot too easy to foretell and a thrill level that dips with the rising of the body count.

October 21, 2013
Sarah's would-be parade of vengeance makes for a bloody but bland reckoning.
October 20, 2013
An excellent cast and the film's authentic period look help transport us back to 1880s New Mexico while watching a very angry woman out for revenge.
October 18, 2013
There isn't much insight into religious fanaticism or gender politics from the era, but the showdowns pack a punch.
October 10, 2013
A revenge-fantasy Western that wants to luxuriate in its B-movie roots but suffers from dull direction and an even duller central performance.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 10, 2013
It bludgeons with intent, even dabbling in some "Deadwood"-level verbal shock-and-awe; without wit or intelligence, it's merely baroque affectation playacting at depth.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 10, 2013
As violent act begets silly exchange begets another violent act, "Sweetwater" squanders its noteworthy resources ...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

There are worse ways to spend 90 minutes than with a mediocre Western.
July 4, 2013
The Millers work known elements with flair, and their commitment to character is invigorating, making the eventual slide into bloodlust ripple with personality.

Unwatchable- one of the worst movies I've ever seen at Sundance.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10
January 24, 2013
The tone in Sweetwater is as heavy as that firepower, and the film can feel like stiff medicine.
January 22, 2013
A handsomely designed, occasionally funny but ultimately empty female vengeance yarn.
January 22, 2013
Boasting a script ripe with overwrought, pseudo-Deadwood dialogue, Sweetwater provides three roles enticing enough to have attracted thesps deserving of better material.
