The Harder They Fall

The Harder They Fall ★★★★

One of the most entertaining westerns I've seen. Just read that Jeymes Samuel is originally a musician and this is his directorial debut. The tone and style he brought was like something I've only seen out of Edgar Wright. The constant connection between the soundtrack and action was fantastic.

I think people tend to avoid Westerns because the time period and settings are dull and boring. The sets and cinematography had so many vivid colors that popped on the screen. While the dialogue maintained some western slang and cadence, allowing the characters to still use some more modern speech throughout was nice touch that could've easily felt off.

Almost every supporting character was interesting and all the lead actors gave great performances. Even though Johnathon Majors is in the next Ant-Man and Loki, I hope he continues to break into the mainstream and become a household name.
