Taut and fierce with Francesca Eastwood at the helm and Chad Michael Murray as a strong male lead. 'Outlaws and Angels' won't go down as an iconic or cult following western, but it's strong enough to make you think about it from time to time.
The filmmakers here set out to make a classic down and dirty spaghetti Western. They definitely got the dirty part right this movie is filthy that's not necessarily a bad thing but it has to have more, more than dirt to make a spaghetti Western. The Filmmakers have obviously seen a lot of these types of movies ,the cinematographer here knows how to move the camera like the spaghetti Western Masters but his framing is not quite as dramatic , nice job in giving you the feel of a old spaghetti Western . Some of the acting here is okay nothing great but nothing awful , The problem here I believe is with the direction IF the director can't see that an actor's scar is so badly done that it's distracting and that same actor Has chosen to speak so unclear that it is also distracting and then continues to go ahead with those bad decisions I think is A symbol of what's wrong with this film, The director is also so enamored and joyful in his use of ultraviolet imagery that he forgets why he's using it and he gets caught up in just the gore and forgets the glory .material like this is very difficult to get just right that's why there is only one Tarantino .but that doesn't mean anybody can't try this material it just needs better direction . IM A huge fan of this genre of film and I so much wanted to like this movie I was giving it all the breaks in the world it just doesn't quite live up to what it's trying to do .
Pretty decent movie. A little slow but decent .
If you like a good western avoid this movie. Being unconventional isn’t always a good thing, and this movie proves that abundantly. Closer to “A Clockwork Orange” than a traditional western.
So then...if you think it will be your average him drum western, not so. This is probably one of the blackest films noire ever, just dressed up in Western clothing. It starts out with a bang and stays that way until the finish. While most men will say they were surprised by the twists and turns, I was not at all surprised and had a sneaking suspicion about 15 min into the movie. This was confirmed when mom tells her daughter to give her father his "before-dinner-rubdown". I will say the depth of the depravity took me a bit by surprise, but then again it was the frontier. We have just always been shown an idyllic picture of the oh-so-wonderful Wild West. I could so totally understand everything that happened. Unlike with many other movies, I did not feel the profanity, gore and violence were gratuitous. I think the writer, author, director laid bare the oh-so-wholesome western on the altar of a much closer reality of frontier life.
This is on par with "Precious"...
awful, ultra violent crap set in a western setting.
This one is really out there
Disgusting movie! This is the worst western movie I have ever seen. You will feel sickened by how horrible and disgusting this movie is. It tries to make sexual assault look acceptable. It tries to make incest and pedophilia look like it was the norm. This movie is sickening.
Original and different and not boring. Worth seeing.
Distasteful and mean spirited script that is accompanied by inept film making will leave you bitter for the rest of your night. Avoid this stinker at all costs.
