Movie Review: No Country For Old Men

No Country For Old Man

Director: Joel Coen
Starring: Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem
Release Date: November 21, 2007

Review: 4 out of 5

Best Scene: The first three quarters of the movie.

This movie is friggen sick. I know no hip hop head would be interested in a movie that from the marketing seems is about old white cowboys. In fact, me and my homie were like the only people in the theatre, it was two other old black dudes and the just those artsy white couples. But let me break it down for you, this movie has “Mcgyvor-like” cowboys, huge Giant Gonzales serial killers, Mexican drug dealers, a 2.8 million dollar stash box and one bad ass Tommy Lee Jones. Oh yeah and a lot of bodies get laid out.

This movie is intense. I had like thirty-eight heart attacks watching it. The dialogue is sparse but effective, the acting is damn good, the cinematography is breath taking and adds to the empty darkness of the film. The antagonist who is this psychotic Giant Gonzales like dude, who is played by Javier Bardem, is the main reason for my increase in blood pressure and higher chance of cardiovascular disease.

No Country For Old Men

This dude is beyond gangster, he’s psycho gangster. He operates on some skewed logic that determines who lives and who dies. Not only that, but this dude is one ugly mother-beep. Just looking at him, I wondered if dude really was an actor, this guy is the meanest dude I’ve ever seen. It was like watching Jason when I was three years old.

The protagonist on the other hand, is this typical redneck cowboy, he’s got a McGyvor like abilities but when it comes to street smarts his trailer park IQ prevents him from really being the hero of the film. This is ultimately the weakness of the film, as the ending is way too philosophical for the majority of movie goers to understand. You know those films that win Oscars that you never heard of or go see, we’ll this is one of them. Ultimately, if you have a chance you need to see this flick.
