Hawke steals the show

Paul is a man that is trying to leave everything and go to Mexico but on his way he encounters a drunk priest and passes through town Denton and manages to draw trouble to himself. Plot is very well developed allowing you to see that Paul is running away from something and has lost touch with world. After being challenged by Gilly and beating him up we are aware of his strength and capability. Then after being forced to leave town, he was followed by Gilly and his men. Killing his dog and trying to kill him obviously left his in agony and thirst for blood, he decides to go back in town. On way to town encounters priest one more time but he was so drunk that he didn't manage to shoot him so once more he got beat up by Paul. When he returned to town it was a cold blooded shoot out for every men except Gilly, he hang him and beat him eventually leading to Mary-Anne shooting him. Marry-Anne character is also incredible as she is young and wants to be taken care of but falling in love with Paul from the first moment she saw him. On the other hand Clyde, Gilly's father is a marshal that leads town that wanted to peace out with Paul and bring some reason to all and in doing so got shoot. Only bad part was when you are being shown flashbacks from Paul's past that was kind of poorly done and felt wrong. Ethan Hawke as Paul is absolutely amazing with his acting as well as Travolta with some long monologues and great dialogue. Others didn't quite fit and some gave not so good performances. Movie also uses a weird sense for humour it was absurd at times but sometimes gets it. Directing of the movie was fine there were some pretty good scenes with a lot of tension and script is at times amazing and sometimes fails to achieve it's true potential. Same goes for dialogues some were great and there were times when it was hard to listen them mostly because they were silly. Musical score was pretty good and well balanced. 2.5/4

Screw the haters, this is a real fine Western

If you are a fan of classic Westerns, you'll find yourself glued to the screen enjoying every minute of this film.

Disclosure: I am 62 years old as I write this, so I've seen 'em all. And watching this one, I couldn't help feel like it was 1967, or thereabouts, what with the steady camera-work, the superb cinematography capturing all the dusty glory of New Mexico, U.S.A.

And the soundtrack! Not some canned muzak, not some minimalist guitar scratchings, but a full-blown beauty of a musical composition that took me right back to the Spaghetti classics.

Now, this won't win an Oscar, but dang if it didn't make my Friday night popcorn and beer movie night.

"In A Valley of Violence" is a total winner. p.s....the dog is an unbelievably good actor.

This just falls completely flat

I like Hawke in this role. He does a good job. In fact the whole cast does a good job.

This movie however is just written on napkin. It's like a class for writing where the teacher asks what are the main elements of western and then you tie a thin red string through that.

I do not understand why big names are in this movie at all. I thought perhaps maybe there was a national competition and that fresh out of school kids won and that the actors joined up for charity's sake.

There is however some humor in this movie. They sort of managed to make traditional western dialogue a bit cheeky. I managed to get through it, but I was questioning why the whole time. 3:10 to Yuma or True Grit are great movies. This does not make the cut.
