The movie's biggest fault is the characters. Nothing is done to make the 'heroine' seem likeable and while the villain does do dastardly things that would warrant hate and loathing, I just couldn't ever bring myself to caring that much or finding him that threatening. And the less said about the said characters the better. Seriously, I haven't hated a character as much as the loan officer drought in to help uncover the murders in a long time. Why does he dance? Why?!
To top it off with one of the most anticlimactic endings I've seen. If you're one of those people who taught Kill Bill Vol.2 ending was a letdown, I can't imagine what you'd think of this. Yikes.
I haven´t heard or red anything about "Sweetwater" as far as I can remember, but I have such a sweet spot for western movies, so it was impossible to not see this one and I was positively surprised of this bleak and violent western. Nice to see the lovely January Jones stepping yet again outside of her Betty Draper persona and with her cool and no bullshit approach she makes Sarah come alive. Jason Isaacs is great as the evil Josiah, but the biggest treat is to see Ed Harris having the time of his life as Sheriff Jackson. He has so many great scenes and his character is such a breath of air. It makes me think of Marlon Brando´s Robert E. Lee Clayton in
"The Missouri Breaks". Love the scene when he literally kicks the shit out of the local corrupt lawman. The cast is good, the cinematography is solid and the story has a good balance between good and evil within the revenge scenario. Good one.
