Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Enough horse-opera clichs to shame the makers of Gunsmoke.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Saturday, December 1, 2001

Rotten: A documentary on baseball's Texas Rangers and their last-place season would have been more interesting.

- Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Wednesday, March 7, 2007

Rotten: Large cast is uniformly fine with tongue-twisting, pulpy dialogue, though pic presents only brief flashes of what look to be fully realized characterizations jettisoned at some point during production or post.

- Eddie Cockrell, Variety, Saturday, October 18, 2008

Audience Reviews

5 stars

When I seen 'Dawson' from Dawson's Creek & Ashton Kutcher in a western I thought there was no way that this would be good. Not that I don't enjoy both of those guys and think they are good actors but it was hard for me to believe they could pull roles in a western movie and be convincing - I'll say they proved me wrong. The greatest reasons for this being a great movie is the fact that while it still has Hollywood's glamour and gun slinging style that the west is always presented in it was 'Dawson' and Kutcher that gave the film a breath of 'real life' beyond the typical Hollywood edge. With both of best worlds, the guys didn't destroy the movie of western vibe, but they created it and more. I was convinced and truly felt like this was a realistic setting and that's something that I haven't really felt in a western since movies like 'Lonesome Dove' and 'Comanche Moon'. The movie thanks to Kutcher had some pretty funny parts adding a untraditional humor this genre of movie. Along with some laughter, insane action, sadness, and happiness the movie does a great job at hitting viewers emotions on every level. In my opinion, it was under rated, and is a good 5! (That could because I am biased for modern western movies) but I truly enjoyed it. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good western, especially, if you have any southern or Texas heritage as it will boost it all that much more for you.
