User Review

Western cinematography is not dead…

Rating: 9/10


Westerns are all about cinematography, and Blackthorn is no exception.

Wide, sweeping vistas are the order of the day — but this time,
they're something new: South America, and in particular, Bolivia. This
tale of an aging-exiled American outlaw and his attempts to return home
may seem a bit straightforward and tame, but in the end it's not and
you'll be glad to have spend the hour and forty-five minutes partaking
in this latest great example of the genre.

The directing isn't too bad either and the actors generally deliver
their lines well, although a few are a bit over-read.

For a modern western that's not an adolescent fantasy and has a great
deal of heart, it gets 9/10.
