There's a group of words bandied around for this one such as generic, cliché and formulaic, and most assuredly these can not be argued about. For this is very much an old style traditional Western, the plot featuring a retired gunslinger being pushed into action again - while he tries to reconcile with his estranged father - is a hard core staple of 1950s Westerns. But what is wrong with having a traditional Western in this day and age as long as it's produced with skill and grace? The answer for Western lovers is nothing at all.
This is a beautifully mounted picture, fronted by father and son Sutherland's - which adds heartfelt emotion to their scenes together - and boosted by gorgeous cinematography (making it a Blu-ray must), it's a genre piece of worth. Crucially it knows what it wants to be, it has no pretence to be anything other than a traditional Oater for lovers of such. The villains are sneery and scenery chewers - apart from Wincott who is a gentleman dandy type - and the good guy is wonderfully broody and reflective. Pacing is fine, the story has good drama and the finale excites as we hope it should.
In summary, nothing new here of course (except maybe Cox's out of place language!), so expectation of such would be foolhardy, but a smashing Western it be. 7/10
And I am pleased to report that Forsaken is a pretty decent attempt at an old fashioned rootin' tootin' western. It's clearly been made by a fan of this genre with echoes of Clint Eastwoods masterpiece, Unforgiven. Forsaken is a fairly simple familiar tale with an old gun slinger John Henry Clayton (Kiefer Sutherland) returning back to his home town, trying to put his violent past behind him. He returns to home to his disaproving father, Rev Clayton played by Donald Sutherland and to find that all the locals are been forced out of town or mudered for not selling their land. Unforgiven and Young Guns rolled into one. Can't be a bad thing in my book.
The film is a slow burner for the most part, which I like, with outbursts of violence and some great gun fights. The baddies are vile and I yerned for the time to come when they get what they deserve. Like Will Munny says, "we all got it comin' kid".
Forsaken is beautifully shot and well acted by all involved. Even Demi Moore is pretty good as a woman who John Henry Clayton was, and is still in love with.
There is a decent making of on tbe special features which clearly shows everyone involved in Forsaken really cared about the project and had a clear vision of what they wanted. And for the most part the film does achieve it all. This is not a criticism, but I felt that the film was dealt with very cautiously, ensuring it Paid total repect to the classic westerns we all know and love. I'm sure if they film makers did another western they would do more than just their toes into the water of this genre.
This is no Unforgiven or Josey Wales but it's something to get your teeth into and is very enjoyable.
The start was good, and the middle section was just coming to the boil, but had this movie had an extra 20 mins to develop itself a bit further... we'd have seen a proper come-back from ole Mr Sutherland. But as it stands, this was a competent effort, worth watching, with enough grit, steel and a proper western mentality to watch all the way to the end. The real life father/son combination works on screen too. But this isn't Young Guns, it lacks a bit in the action department, there are no wild chases through the woods or on horseback, it's a bit one paced in that sense. I liked the story, and even if he just rides off with no woman or place to especially go, he's fulfilled what he went back to do.
Didn't like the swearing that only came later on by Brian Cox's character, why only him and no one else? Either have it full on or not at all, no point just one character, that otherwise uses big words to swear too and no one hardly else doing the same. I guess that's a gripe, with the running time, and lack of action. Three things missing, for only four stars...
However, the only problem I had with Forsaken was our hero took a lot of stick from the "nasties" in the film and he got a real pasting too at one point. I was surprised it took him so long to go back to his dad's place for his guns. When eventually the grand finale did arrive it is then one appreciates just how good Shane was and bearing in mind it was made nearly 60 years before.
Forsaken is an enjoyable film and it is well worth a watch. If you did enjoy the film do give Shane 90 minutes of your time. The final part is worth the price of the ticket alone!
