Shootin it up in Las Vegas
"No Country for Old Men" was...for lack of a better term "OK". I wasn't quite sure what I would be in store for when it started. The characters were believable, the storyline was interesting, the setting of course, and yes I may be biased because I grew up in and was born here in Las Vegas,New Mexico, amazing. However, the ending just well...killed the movie for me. After sitting through about an hour and a half watching Javier Bardem kill people, destroy hotel rooms and shoot out locks with a pressurized air tank, I expected the ending to be a little more......action packed? and I really can't believe the bad guy walked away.......It was an odd twist to the film,although I'm not going to complain about it. Otherwise, besides the ending I really liked the movie, and it made me happy to be able to see my hometown in the background of the film. I remember watching them film here, and seeing everything get set up...I didn't get to see the movie in theaters, so this was my first time watching it. As I said before, I really did enjoy it, but all in all I wish the ending had been different....Maybe Javier Bardems character should have had a shoot out with Tommy Lee Jones...instead of just killing him.....and I think it was pretty messed up of the wife to end up getting killed in the end, but I suppose it makes sense seeing as the killer was a mass murder. Again,the cinematography was great, the action was amazing...but I just really hated the ending.
