This review is from: The Jack Bull (DVD)
JACK BULL is a smart and slick tale of frontier justice taken to extremes. John Cusack nails the role of the horse trader done wrong and the acts he takes in retribution.
I especially liked the introduction of the John Goodman character as a no-nonsense frontier judge whose sense of justice is equal to Cusack's. Cusack's acts of vigilante justice work on an individual basis in a lawless society, but Goodman represents the Law. I thought this interesting story became fascinating after Goodman's arrival. What started out as a revenge movie slowly and surely morphs into a tragedy, with two strong-willed characters whose passion for justice negates any other considerations.
This one surprised me some. JACK BULL is a minor classic and immensely enjoyable. I very strongly recommend it.
