JANE GOT A GUN DVD REVIEW16:26:00
After taking a long time to be made, Jane Got A Gun, has finally been created and like lots of westerns it tries to refresh the classic Western genre. However it does end up trying a little bit too hard throughout lovelies.
Natalie Portman steps in to play Jane, while Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton star alongside her as the people Jane calls upon in her time of need. All three of them are perfectly incredible actors but in this film they have been let down by the trying too hard script.
Following Jane as she tries to defeat the men threatening her family, the film sees her taking on the fight. The film is very slow at showing Jane’s fight and the way in which she is trying to protect her home and loved ones.
When it gets going it is really good and brings back to life the classic films that have made the western genre but it doesn’t have enough excitement at the start of the film to make it a great viewing experience for the western fan.
All of the actors have the skills and they are desperately trying to play them off on screen, but when they don’t have the exciting story or scenes to play out they are unable to do so. Portman could have been so much more and she definitely tries her hardest to do so, but when the script she is given isn’t allowing her to be able to do so it makes it hard to watch. They are all actors who deserved so much more.
Overall the film lacks life. It lacks a real sense of trying to make something enjoyable and that makes it hard to actually take in what is happening without getting a little bit bored.
There so I am giving the film…
