Movie Review – No Country for Old Men

I finally got around to watching this movie and it was fantastic. I’ve never seen a villain quite like Javier Bardem portrayed. A well deserved Oscar win for him and for Best Picture.

The movie is about a man who finds a briefcase full of money at a drug-deal gone bad. Everyone is dead, so he decides to take the money. Imagine the most terrifying person trying to find that money and you’ve got this movie. It’s a must-watch.

  • Entertainment – 1/1
    • The suspense was perfect, my eyes were glued to the screen and I couldn’t stop watching.
  • Story – 1/1
    • A simple, yet intriguing story. It’s easy to follow, but the characters are well developed.
  • Acting – 1/1
    • Excellent performance by Javier Bardem, with Josh Brolin doing a great job as well. All supporting characters were fantastic.
  • Cinematography – 1/1
    • Beautifully shot. I really felt like I was out in desert/hills with these characters. The sets and costumes were fantastic as well.
  • Editing & Direction – 1/1
    • Very smooth transitions, I never noticed the cuts they were just perfect. Excellent direction all around, not a single thing that I can criticize. Pacing was excellent.

A perfect 5/5 score. A “must-watch” movie. IMDb Link.
