I just love watching Westerns & there’s no doubt that no body can challenge Clint Eastwood- Sergio Leone combo in this genre. Sorry to all John Wayne- John Ford fans…but Eastwood is the God for me ‘coz I grew up watching him from my childhood days. Westerns are rarely made nowadays & so I must thanks Actor- Director Ed Harris for his effort.
‘Appaloosa’ is a story of town by the same name where Bragg (Jeremy Irons) is ruling as threat to the citizens & here comes our two blazing men with guns & guts- Virgil Cole (Ed Harris) & Everett Hitch (Viggo Mortensen) to protect them. Well everything went well for the trial of justice to prosecute the villain until Virgil’s love interest was held with the muzzle of gun. And it’s here onwards picture becomes interesting & engaging one after quite slow first half. This is not certainly good solid western to recommend anyone but it doesn’t mean that the film is bad product. It’s surely a refreshing entertainer for all western lovers. Among all lead players it’s only Viggo who shines throughout the film.
Watch it once if you like Westerns.
