Today I watched No Country For Old Men for the first time (I don't know why I didn't see it before now but what can I do), No Country For Old Men is the story of a hunter named Llewellyn who comes across a drug deal gone wrong and finds $2 million in cash and decides to take it; this leads to many people trying to hunt him down to get the money back. No Country For Old Men is written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen and stars Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, Kelly Macdonald and Woody Harrelson.
There are quite a few positives to this film, which include: great acting, a good story, it is very tense, story progression is great, the action is good and the directors let the audience think. To expand, everyone is great in this film especially Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin their performances are outstanding; the plot in this film has a basic premise but deepens as the film progresses. Also in many places in the film something happens, the characters don't explain it and the directors leave the audience to decipher what has happened; which is really cool to see.
There are also a couple of negatives, which are that I wasn't emotionally attached to the characters and the ending was a little weird. To expand, the ending wasn't bad and the film resolved well but the film was leading up to a big showdown and instead it fades to black and sees another character experience what happened after the showdown; like I said the ending was still good but I would've preferred it if I had seen the battle.
Overall I think this film is really good and I thoroughly enjoyed it, so taking all I have said into consideration I rate this film:
