    The farmer and the cowman still can't be friends

    Open Range is a worthwhile stop on the trail of modern westerns. It succeeds, most notably, in scenery, illustrating resentment and corruption in Old West society, and in starring Robert Duvall. Those who struggle with fiction and long films may find it exceptionally drawn-out. And Costner's life story is recited without much feeling. But there is a good old-fashioned showdown, clear good and bad guys, and a girl to be got. It's still the same old story of ranchers and cattle men quarreling over land, though this is a mercifully non-musical realization. And it's more family-oriented than the R-rating suggests. I believe it is on account of some violence, but they're only actors and it's not real blood. Watch for the bearded cafe owner, played by Herb Kohler, of bathroom-fixture fame.

    Nice Western!

    This movie is an entertaining western with a beautiful location and talented actors. There is a lot of classic action as well as well-timed comedy, and the blooming romance between Costner and Bening is enchanting. It is refreshing alternative to some of the other, more hyped, new releases.

    Western History the Way It Should Be

    Open Range is set in a period of time that only lasted a few years, yet left a lasting impression in the history of the American West. In a fairly accurate depiction of the life of free range cattle outfits, Costner has captured the texture of life on the open lands before the coming of the homesteaders. Duvall's performance is believable and true to life; one not to be missed by his fans. The gunfight in the streets of the town at the end of the movie is spectacular, as is the scenery. A must see for all fans of the Old West.
