West pairs Ethan Hawke with an adorable canine sidekick, but he can't teach an old genre new tricks.

The film conveys a sense of pastiche unpredictably giving way to a raw and primordially intimate emotional realm.

A by-the-numbers spaghetti Western that's kind of slow and uneventful...

Feels exasperatingly two-dimensional.

Does not take itself too seriously (a great asset), but it also takes itself just seriously enough that it's not empty snarky parody.

Announces itself as an unabashed B-movie from its pre-credits scene ... and never worries itself about being anything deeper than that.

Its somber, bone-dry gruffness crumbles to dust, only to be replaced by adolescent jokiness.

West is an impeccable craftsman, his storytelling chops as fatless and near-faultless as ever.

Revenge hasn't been this sweet in a long time.

Not West's best film (that honor would still go to The House of the Devil), but it is a noble effort into non-genre territory that is probably his most accessible film to date.
