Top Customer Reviews
The film is possibly the most ambitious film from the Award winning filmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen ("Fargo", "The Big Lebowski", "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", "Raising Arizona") based on the 2005 novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy. "NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN" was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won four which include "Best Achievement in Directing", "Best Motion Picture of the Year", "Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role" and "Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published".
"NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN" makes its re-appearance on Blu-ray with a new audio track, five hours of bonus footage and a digital copy.
VIDEO & AUDIO:
"NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN" is featured in 1080p High Definition with an aspect ratio of (2:35:1). One thing you will notice is how the colors of the rugged outdoors really pops. The earth tones and its vibrancy during the day, to the dark black and blues during the night. I saw no major artifacting or high grain during the low light conditions.
Also, when you see the characters in High Definition, you see the wrinkles, the pores...very detailed picture quality. Even the people who were shot and killed, good amount of detail in the bullet wounds and showcasing how much detail the crew went into making sure the these wounds look realistic. There is no denying that the picture quality for "NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN" is amazing and right up there with the top tier titles.Read more ›
Personally, I love movies like this. Movies where everything is not tied together nicely, where the good guy doesn't always succeed, and where the traditional rules of Hollywood are broken. If you expect a movie where the good guy vanquishes the bad guy in a gun-battling, car-chasing climax then you better rent something else. If you want a happy ending, you may want to watch the movie 'Enchanted' instead as another reviewer suggested. Nothing works out for any of the characters. This includes the main bad guy Anton Chigurh played by Javier Bardem. What should be a simple job of retrieving 2 million dollars of missing drug money from a local good ole' boy turns into a really big headache for him. He then goes on a murder spree just because he was so inconvenienced. That is what makes this character really scary. He'll do anything to finish the job, and he'll dish out triple the amount of pain bestowed upon him.
As for the ending, you must keep the title of the movie in mind.Read more ›
The story is fairly simple: on the raw plains of Texas a slaughter of men and dogs engaged in a drug deal is discovered by a simple guy Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin). Moss observes the mayhem, sees the drugs, finds the 2 million dollar payoff money, takes the money, and embarks on an escape, leaving his wife Carla (Kelly Macdonald) to escape the pursuit of a mad killer Chigurh (Javier Bardem) who in turn is being pursued by the local sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) and a hired hitman (Woody Harrelson). The satchel of money contains a tracking device and Chigurh has the instrument necessary to follow the trail the device leads. The remainder of the film is the pursuit both in Texas and in Mexico, accompanied by countless brutal murders of all sorts by the crazed Chigurh, until a surprise ending.
But the toughest part of this violent film is more in the discussion of shared philosophies between the sheriff and his old cronies: they reflect on the sad state of universal crime that is so different and more malevolent than in the 'old days'.Read more ›

|Where Chigurh is hiding||
Just another opinion here. I don't believe that Chigurh is actually in the room when Bell arrives at the door. My interpretatrion is that Bell is terrified that he will encounter this man who he fears and simply cannot understand. He doesn't want to enter the hotel room and possibly confont... Read More

|The Sheriff's Dream?? (Warning Spoiler Alert!)||
When he dreams of his father...to me it's clear that he's dreaming of his own death, which he and I as the viewer assumer are coming soon...where his father has gone on ahead to lead the way, prepare a place, greet him, etc. etc.

I think Carson is meant to serve as a foil to Anton and highlight Anton's efficiency as a hitman. Wells is in the same profession as Anton, but he follows a different moral code which gets him killed. IMO, Wells fails where Anton succeeds for two main reasons: 1) he is not as attentive to...

|Better picture: DANCES WITH WOLVES or GOODFELLAS?||
Goodfellas was a much better picture.. The direction and acting are just so superior to the Costner film.. What sentimentality 'Dances with wolves' had was sadly lost after a dispute in which Costner tried to create a dances with wolves casino... I mean that shows you where Costner's true heart...
