As soon as I heard about film, involving the Indians-cannibals, decided that will look at it. However, the "Bone Tomahawk" is not has pleased me with what I wanted. Already on the first frame shows that is discomycete. About this camera, original colors, and the lack of a dynamic soundtrack. I was expecting something like a "the hills have eyes" or equivalent scenes with the Pithecanthropus of the "the Lost world" (2001), but here it is not so enticing. Even the scene with the murder of cannibals cling. Yeah and the cannibals show a little, although they-the entire film and have to hold on. Actors like and trying, but not disclosed time.

Especially sad due to the fact that the idea as simple, with such a plot it would be possible to make a film bomb. Who would I was afraid to entrust the shooting of this film is Michael Calmano. "Bone Tomahawk" is not hurt the atmosphere is "Primitive evil". And even with such a task would be able to handle Zak Snyder: in "300" there are amazing scenes of bloodshed if same was "bone Tomahawk", it would just perfect!

And so there's even a few extra episodes, highlighting it by a low-budget — erotic scene, detailed butchering of cannibal corpses unnatural quiet shots and unrealistic fall the Indians from bullets. All this even something like a second-class continuation "Turn not there".

If you think it listed my weaknesses as well, it can view, but if you expect the film tense moments, the better pass him party.

Return to the genre of a Western, mixed with modern trends of cinema, led to that began to appear unimaginable alloys genres. In this case, we have "horror westerns" how it was christened by the creators. The idea is not, strictly speaking, new already received or other distribution in the first wave of the popularity of westerns. But those times was beshitrostnye horror category B, and here we have a picture with a modest budget, but with famous actors.

The film is about four protagonists from the Wild West (heroes of the Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox Richard Jenkins) and their opposition to the monstrous Indians-cannibals. Good old — take characters, put in a precarious situation and learn more about their emotional traumas and experiences. So we learn that the Sheriff of Franklin will do everything want to protect the town; Arthur — the guy is simple but responsible; Chicory — though the old man, but still able to save the situation; John — the gentleman from their own plans and goals. Deeper disclosure of the characters traits designed for discharge thick atmosphere of pain and the cruelty of the undeveloped land.

All the actors (except, perhaps, Patrick Wilson — well, not look like a cowboy with the Wild West, and several minor roles) played fine: I would see another picture about the adventures of their Quartet.

The disadvantages of the film the two, but quite serious. First, as mentioned above, Patrick Wilson. Secondly, it is the slowness of the second act. The feeling that the Director needed to be filled with something in the film. Many of the scenes in the time travel characters are not carry meaning, not disclose of the characters and attached to increase screen time. However, you can refer to the inexperience of the Director.

Conclusion despite the small budget and some semantic gaps, "Bone Tomahawk" — high quality the chamber film format Western of the old school with elements gore and slightly blurred by the atmosphere.

Good debut, forcing him to look at the author  - only viewers. The film is interesting to watch in no optional parts (and it in a two-hour format) plus unusual how would Western. Several naturalistic scenes for westerns not typical, but here is the dialogues, the entourage of "Seekers" — all of antiquity. The film was shot almost all of secondary plans — that's exactly unusual for commercial movie. "Tomogavk" called Arthouse language is not turn back, but picture of the author. Sometimes, however (especially the first hour) I the picture seemed overly tight, not enough air, but then this seems to have dissipated. More acting is reduced to a function pronunciation texts. The lyrics are overly literary, living in them a little.

Told a nice story with a sufficient amount of conventions ("the lame vladut first"), but the lack of music and the intentional absence of spectacular finale author do honor. About potential Zalera early to judge, but here I "Tomogavk" was much more ambitious and much of the author's movie about Dominique the cowardly murder of Jesse James.

The role of the iconic pattern all not stalling at least from what to review not at all want. Time will tell, was whether spectacular debut by the beginning of the glorious path (like "reservoir dogs"), or a single success of the cinephile.
