I too, like some of the other reviewers of this mess, had high hopes going into this film. I am a fan of Harris and Viggo as well as the Western genre. However, there are very few things to like in this plodding and clueless movie. The two leads are about as static and cardboard as I've ever seen these two men. Their relationship, which I heard was the real reason to watch Appaloosa, was distant and unformed at best. Zellweger as the young woman of questionable motives and loose morals seemed to be at a loss for what, exactly, her character was to be portraying. And Jeremy Irons baddie was the opposite of frightening. But the real drag about this movie was it's plot. The story doesn't go anywhere. It was impossible to find anything resembling a climax. It goes out like it came in , with zero pinache. Harris should have his directors guild card revoked after this 2 hour waste of time.

Great visuals, great story and great performances by Ed Harris and Jeremy Irons. Viggo plays Ed Harris' sidekick as a couple of peace keeping long time buddies whom try to save a town from the evil doings of Jeremy Irons and his gang. I do like Viggo as an actor but I felt his role in this movie was a little dissapointing. He barely spoke and the chemistry between him and Ed Harris' character was minimal. Almost as if he had no personality. Ed Harris played a good role as a wise experienced lawman who's determined to uphold the law any means possible. Renee's character was a little annoying, but she does get the job done in her role as a self-conscious and insecure woman who wants to settle down. Maybe i'm being too hard on her but she has this very annoying smile throughout the movie. I wish Jeremy Irons was utilized more in this movie. He played such a superb bad guy and I felt we didn't see enough of him! Overall, this movie is worth seeing, almost as good as 3:10 to Yuma, the story and the visuals were very well done. Ending could've been a little better. Oh, and I love how the bad guys in this movie had such horrible aim, they would miss at point blank range! Sorry, had to throw that small complaint in. Rent it on Blu Ray if you can!

Please forgive me as I write this as I have only just finished seeing the movie less than 15 minutes ago and am a bit stunned. I came on line to see if others thought as I did or was it just a mirage I mis-interpreted. Though there have been some notable exceptions, today the western seems to be a lost art. I really feel bad for Mr. Harris, I have always enjoyed and respected his work. But I have to say that as far as this person opinion, who grew up on westerns all through the 1960's, this was one pitiful contribution. Such a wonderful cast squandered on such a pitiful writing & directing. The first half of the movie I kept thinking that this sly fox ( Harris ) was setting me up with what appeared to be the predictableness of it all. The third half-hour of the movie I started to get that sickening feeling that this was being played straight up. The last half-hour I just sat on the edge of my seat in frustrated agony waiting for the credits. Again, out of respect for Mr. Harris (and the rest of the cast) I will stop there and say no more. And please don't think I am down on westerns....just this one.

I was excited about this movie when I saw the previews; I had high hopes in a new western made in modern times. I like all of the actors involved, except for Zellweger. But I¿m afraid that this movie was a huge disappointment to the whole group that saw it. The only thing that was interesting was the conversations between Viggo and Ed. The love story was disgustingly pitiful; I know they were probably going for a realistic approach to what the times were like and what some women did to feed themselves. But it was terrible and I spent the whole time going from really liking the characters to feeling absolute disgust for all involved. A big letdown in my opinion. If you¿re looking for a slow, boring, frustrating, pitiful display of character development, you will be in for a treat. If not, avoid this movie.

While not a fan of Westerns, I'm a fan of both Harris and Mortensen, so I decided to give it a try and I thought this film was spot on. I'm not usually a big fan of sparse dialogue in a book, but the style suited the story and I flew through the book in very few hours. The two lead actors brought the pages to life through the dry humour of their characters. It's rare that you see films that follow the book so faithfully. Allie French, played by Zellweger, is annoying as h*ll in the book...she's supposed to be annoying. While I'm not a fan of her work, overall, she played the part of Allie to a "t", erasing my disappointment that the original actress cast in the film, Diane Lane, had to withdraw. If not for one brief nude scene, the film could probably have gotten a PG-13 rating. I highly recommend it for a bit of fun and escapism.

This western has wonderful actors, beautiful scenery, and really fine costumes and western gear. It also has surprises. Robert B. Parker's novel translates perfectly into a very fine western movie.

What can I say...Yes I bought the movie because Im a big fan of westerns. I liked it for what it was, it was fairly drawn between some avarage deperado kind of feel and some good law-abiding, payback kind of western action. I recomend this movie to anyone who loves a good western.
