Slow West (2015)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“In a short time, this will be… a long time ago.” – Werner

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Dec 2020)

Brief Synopsis – A young Scottish man travels across America with an outlaw as his guide in search of his long lost love.

Bottom Line -Intriguing idea that doesn’t work as well as one might hope. The cast is fine wit Kodi Smit-McPhee and Michael Fassbender playing the leads. The two of them bond quite well over the course of the film despite their obvious differences.  The movie moves along at quite a slow pace and that hurts things a bit. The final third of the film helps show the realism of the Old West and  makes the story more gripping during those scenes.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – One of the WANTED posters uses a famous picture of Robert E. Lee. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
