Open Range is an excellent film, well acted. It’s slow and has a couple of unfortunate structural flaws, but it features at least one awesome, crunchingly realistic gunfight. Robert Duvall is solid as usual, though, at an absolutely crucial moment, he blows it by focusing his gaze on a camera. However, it’s Costner’s movie and a good one.
When Costner is good, he’s very good: Tin Cup, The Untouchables, Wyatt Earp. When he’s bad, he’s terrible.
