Wild West, a stranger (Ethan hawke) with a dog going in Mexico. According to the way they call in a small desert town with a population of thirty people, where and find trouble. Rather it is trouble find them.

Movies of Taya West schvaleny critics (80-90%) and underestimated by the audience (imdb rating and kinopoisk 4-5). On my opinion the truth is somewhere in the middle.

The story plot is quite simple and not new, but it works. It is another story of revenge. Not want to spoil so I avoid details. This film, as almost all films of the West look like movies 70-80. the Picture faded, colors not bright, the narration is smooth and measured. At this has something of the atmosphere and at some point the tension drastically increases.Action is very discreet, a couple of fights, skirmishes and two bloody scenes.

Dialogues are good, they are unlikely to play memory not will quote. But in the film they have a job to do. Time when the view is not obviously, the timing is not feeling.

Actors. Ethan hawke looks great in the role of anti-hero and in the setting of the wild West, and in the dramatic moments gives quite a poignant game.

John Travolta here is just wonderful, it character — mixed, very smart and practical. Hard to describe it game, better to see.

Karen Gillan I love, but she got the stupid image of the hysteric. From TAISSY Farmiga role more interesting and she it pretty standard.

I would like to mention a dog, well played. &Nbsp;yeah, she one of characters.

Music standard for westerns that not bad.

In General, it is a decent, professionally made on all levels low-budget movie. With good acting, lively dialogue, directing and staging. From it blows old movies, classic westerns and the works of Quentin Tarantino. To watch fans of the genre, Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, directed by Taya West, Quentin Tarantino and independent American cinema.

he killed so many people that have long lost the account. All he wants now — to left alone. But a young rascal with his friends killing his latest best friend — dog. And the main character goes on a path of revenge...

Familiar story, not is it true? Here only if You thought it is "John Wick", it was wrong. The above synopsis, of course, aptly describes the contents of the picture about the new York killer in the performance of Keanu Reeves, but in the same extent applies to another one recent film — "In the valley of violence" Taya West. The young Director not only directed the tape, but myself I wrote the script, adapting the story of the avenging a murdered four-legged friend under the realities of the Wild West. The result is hardly can be described with the adjectives "original" and"fresh", but and the number of merits the film is not missing.

The role of the protagonist in the name of Paul plays Ethan hawke, who appears, not even had to change clothes after the shooting in"the Magnificent seven". Hawk if dropped set the "Valley" right after work at Antoine Fuqua — and again proved that four-time Oscar nominee and in the Western genre looks absolutely on its place. Despite not the greatest timing belt (it is just over one and a half hours), hawk manages not only to wave a revolver, but and create multi-layered, convex image. As expected to the laws of the genre, its character has not only the tragic real, but and a dark past, and about the past, we also have time to tell briefly (even though the main character is generally pretty terse). Well and scenes from the dog is simply adorable — four-legged friend manages one movement of legs easily "steal" any episode from his venerable partner.

Interesting to see in an atypical manner and John Travolta, for which "In the valley of violence" has become the first Western in a long acting career. With a thick mustache, a gun for belt, wooden leg and the Sheriff's badge it looks very impressive and in the same time in harmony, but worthy antagonist of it still not work. Like the characters in westerns are usually characterized by cruelty, inspire terror, and hero Travolta on the contrary — avoids direct confrontation and the notorious made in the title of the violence. For the violence here is responsible rather, it is not overzealous son from their accomplices. However, with the enemy here at all is the case no matter: they are surprisingly few — total 4 person (not counting the Sheriff, seeking to extinguish the conflict with minimal casualties), but and charisma they desperately enough. Therefore, a mass slaughter a La the same "Week" to not wait have — small and stupid enemies character Hawke straightened quickly and without too much difficulty.

When a well-known story already have practical reference on-screen incarnation, trying to adapt to some other spatio-temporal parameters to avoid comparisons in two main ways. The first — to make furious action. However, "In the valley of violence" — not the case. Despite the name is pretty "slow" movie, and actually catch up with a shooting here start after barely not the whole hour, yeah and end pretty quickly. The climactic battle, to unfortunately, went and is ugly and illogical. The second way to rectify the situation could become a deeper study of the image of the protagonist in part of the motivation — but it leaves much to be desired. The character of Hawk at times contradicts himself itself, does strange and inconsistent actions, and all the motives of its action confined either to "don't touch me I won't hurt" (in the first hour) or to "I'll kill you all and no spare:" (next 35 minutes). It turned out bad and the few female characters of the tape. At all this picture definitely made with great love genre (this is noticeable on the initial titles and music), in her sense of respect for the classic westerns, don't matter visual design — scenery and costumes. However, for the beautiful facade hides a loose story, which is pretty not have enough scale and depth. It is a good genre movie that will be of interest primarily to fans of westerns and personal fans of the lead actors — other hardly entice incompleted story and flat minor characters.

What is happening in the town is often called "Valley of violence" hardly can match with the name to the example he Quentin Tarantino and even get shown hell the screen compared to that category. So what is the name of the town and film a little bluff in front of the audience, but not mean the film turned out bad.

The first thing that catches eyes — the dialogues of the characters, sometimes pathetic and out of place, but not exactly stupid. That gave the audience a good opportunity to enjoy even a small but is actively involved secondary cast. Ethan hawke plays well, but for a tough guy he is all the same something not enough.

Like John Travolta who plays the Marshal of the town, and son shot a dog traveler. For the allotted screen time, Travolta quickly showed the balance of power who is an authority in front of the camera lens. Perhaps the only negative with whom it is impossible to argue — the scale of the film promised some carnage, and happened only a personal disassembly.

The less tai West from the variety in this genre, and after all, such pictures really a lot, certainly not got into the flow of the whirlpool, and may not is a leader among the westerns, then just can be considered stable middle.
