This is a fantastic, historically accurate
on November 26, 2015
Well tarnation, I do not understand all the poo poo reviews! This is a fantastic,historically accurate, well scripted movie with an eerily windswept and appropriately dusty sense of the wide open spaces. Perhaps, if one is an avid fan of galloping desperadoes and heaving bazzooms , this movie might leave you...flat. Heh. Sorry, but really! Ever tried loading a black powder muzzleloader? It takes like , five minutes ! Yes, this is a slow movie , but how fast did a covered wagon really go , anyway? Not Fast , not Furious , no blatant CGI or greenscreen , I loved this durn movie. I am glad to see the western surviving as a genre . If you want epic thrills and over the top sensory overload , this aint the flick to pick , but if its ambiance and scenery so thick you can taste it , go ahead. Take.....Meek's Cutoff. You jes' might not ever come back.
