Coen Brothers' finest hour!

“" I was sheriff of this county when I was twenty-five years old..."

The Coen Brothers have had their finest hours and weakest hours, but No Country for Old Men will forever stand as their best hour. The film just manages to beat Fargo (a film which I loved) with its mix of engaging drama and a script that doesn't feel compelled to follow the standard conventions.

The trailers didn't do much for me, and I was a little bit apprehensive at first...but it raked it awards endlessly and I felt like it was my duty to investigate. Boy am I glad that I did. "Do not judge a book by its cover" is all the advice I can give you in this case.

No Country For Old Men

“This has to be, without a doubt, one of the best films of 2007. The Coen Brothers have again made their talent for film-making shine through this film. From the moment it starts to it's abrupt yet defining end, No Country For Old Men is a true masterpiece of a movie that should not be missed.

I can say for a start that it wasn't quite what I had expected it to be. I knew little about the plot and tried to keep an open mind while walking into the cinema, which was probably the best thing to be doing. It surprised me, but in the best possible way. From the little I knew, I thought it would be perhaps more of a drama film. Instead, it came out to me as a very well done thriller. There was also more violence than I expected, and it wasn't just it being bloody, but everything seemed v” read more

Coen brothers strike gold

“If you are a fan of the Coen brothers movie making, you won't be disappointed with this film. The movie was beatifully shot at great locations that add to the story. The movie has some flaws, but the acting and filming is so well done that you kind of overlook them.

Javier Bardem is worth watching this movie for his perfermance alone. He was well deserving of the Oscar he earned in his role as the brutal hit man. His robotic no nonsense approach to the role was scary. Josh Brolin was very believable in his performance also. He came across as a guy you could drink a beer and trade stories with in a bar.

The only thing I didn't like with the movie is the ending. I know it has been talked about and was probably done in that way to get discussions going, but I didn't” read more

Unsatisfying

“These words/feelings came into my mind after the end of the movie: confusing, unsatisfying, violent and too long.

I think this movie was not realy for me, it's a lot like Fargo(which I also didn't like).

It's okay if a movie let's you think about the ending, but in this case it was just too much.

Was it a bad movie? No! There was suspense, I liked the direction and camera angels and the actors did show an awsome performance. But is it realy Oscar-worthy? In my oppinion not.” read more

"Don't really know why this movie is as popular as it is. It shows everything but the most important showdown in the movie. Leaves plot threads open, like what happened to the briefcase. Has characters like Tommy Lee Jones that do nothing. Finally, has an ending that left me wanting. Not my favorite by any means."

So tense, loved it

“Great acting, great storyline and probably most notable, best soundtrack ever (virtually no music and long periods of silence, I love it!). This makes for a real tense watch and it fits the film perfectly. The film, which is based off a novel of the same name from 2005, does a great job staying true to almost every part of the book, including the ending who may upset or confuse some (ala Sopranos finale'). Javier Bardem plays such a great role as villian, and yet with some added humor here and there. If his character (Chigurh) doesn't creep you out, I'm not sure what will. There are slight traces of humor throughout the movie, but it's done in a classic subtle way. Josh Brolin keeps the movie rolling as we follow him throughout with his portrayal of a hunter who's stumbled upon anoth” read more
