Best western I've seen since Tombstone. Definitely worth the watch. I loved it!

This was one of the best Western movies I have seen in quite awhile. Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen were both exceptional in their roles, especially Mortensen. He looked every bit the part of a Western gun slinger in the untamed west. If you're looking for a shoot em up wild west movie, this is probably not the movie for you, but if you just enjoy an honest to goodness old style Western you

Not too much happens in the Old Western Town of Appaloosa. Sure, people get shot and drunk and punched and pay for female companionship and break people out of jail and a whole lot more, but generally speaking, not a lot happens in Appaloosa. That is not to say this film is boring. For my tastes, this movie verged on being great, but ultimately too much in the detail was left out for it to break

Harris and Mortensen may not have the combined star power to push Appaloosa to the level of popularity of last year's "3:10," but the film is every bit as enjoyable, and, for traditionalists, more measured. Full Review

The movie's tolerant, good-humored view of its characters drains it of some dramatic intensity, but Mr. Harris seems more interested in piquant, offhand moments than in big, straining confrontations. Full Review

USA Today
Harris is a major asset in a film that is entertaining but somewhat unfocused and occasionally badly cast. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Westerns often take themselves seriously and, while Appaloosa is no "Blazing Saddles," there's a refreshing vein of understated humor running throughout the production. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Mannered, episodic and slow. Full Review
