The Comic Critic Reviews: Appaloosa - 2008

Appaloosa is a slim, trim, and neatly executed Western. Driven by the depth of the characters, the story is lovingly framed with a level of set and costume detail that is hard to equal. The visuals are so tempting that, after the movie, you are left longing to know this mysterious little town’s location. I give it a very strong seven, and was very tempted to give it an eight. I nearly did it, since it contained so many of my favorite actors. I’m still tempted and will do so—if I get enough fans clamoring to sway me to score it higher.
