  • Oddly, the published screenplay – while far from McCarthy's top-drawer – reads better than it plays. What's onscreen recalls a line from No Country: "It's a mess, ain't it, Sheriff?" show more

  • What's missing is dramatic subtext and surprise, as well as any playfulness that might have kept us guessing about the plot. show more

  • McCarthy's screenplay, a tangle of doublecrosses and dead men, has just been published. Those who really want to know what's going on would be advised to buy a copy. show more

    I left wondering had I fallen asleep and missed what this movie was about. the trailer was by far better than movie.

    A clever film but excessively long. The story could have been told -- and better-told -- in -120 minutes. By the end I just wanted it to end so that I could get Out Of There.
