APPALOOSA - NOT SO GOOD

The primary problem with this film is the story. The acting is good. The direction is good. The scenery is good. So what is bad? I just did not like the story or the pace of the film. Two professional lawmen are hired to protect a town. What follows is betrayal, and corruption at both the local and national level.
The story is incredibly slow. The story ends with street justice because corruption gets in the way of real justice.
I say wait for it to come out on HBO and then watch Showtime that night. There was just nothing engaging in the story. Had the movie been any slower I know I would have fallen asleep.
