Llewelyn Moss is hunting antelope near the Texas/Mexico border when he stumbles upon several dead men, a big stash of heroin, and more than two million dollars in cash. He takes off with the money--and the hunter becomes the hunted. A drug cartel hires a former Special Forces agent to track down the loot, and a ruthless killer joins the chase as well. Also looking for Moss is the aging Sheriff Bell, a World War II veteran who may be Moss' only hope for survival.

Tommy Lee Jones is good in this film, but not the best fit for the Ed Tom Bell character. More screen time for Woody Harrelson's character, Carson Wells, would have made this film even more interesting.

A True Cinematic treasure. Critics are parasites.

2007 movie. Given the actors, was more violent than expected. But cohesive.

Fantastic movie. A social commentary on the societies changing and the classic western's demise. So glad the library had it via Hoopla!

The best Coen film, and one of the best films, period. Avoid the book. And see another great Tommy Lee Jones film set in Texas: 3 Burials of Melquiades Estrada.

Went into this blind.....just saw the trailer and ordered it and by the time it came I wasn't sure what I was in for.....stuck it in and got a big surprise!....I have to say that I loved it and didn't want it to end....so kept pausing it and made myself do housework to draw it out.....finished it in the evening over a bowl of pot roast....all in all a productive and enjoyable wintery day. Will give the book a go out of curiosity.

Usually a big fan of the Coen brothers, I cannot understand the fascination with this movie. Much lauded in the industry, the violence is so graphic it made me feel ill. Some would say, well then, that's the point. No, just pointless violence.

I disliked this movie very much. I don't quite understand what all the rave reviews were about. I do not think there was anything special about the acting, directing, etc etc. For the life of me I am totally baffled by all the positive reviews this movie received.

Unless you try to interpret hidden implications in each scene, the overall effect is lame. The main character makes a series of bad decisions that leads to a result that is anticlimactic, with an antagonist that is unrealistically unstoppable.

the evil character played by Javier Bardem reminded me of the inevitability of a strong force of nature, such as a twister. Like the Canadian Mounted Police, he 'always gets his man.' This is a break from the typical characterizations---where the superhero is an undefeated phenomenon, so that there is no suspense (the good guy always wins, in the end). As Lennon was quoted on the cover of the album, PUSSYCATS, that he produced for Nilsson, 'Everything's its opposite, isn't it.' So we have here the opposite of the usual formula, which is thrilling in its own way. If I had a spine, shivers would have run up and down it everytime the villain with the cattle gun came on screen. Now, to go from such a satisfying film, to saying to yourself and others, ' Now I need to read everything Cormac McCarthy has written,' does not follow, tit for tat. Elmore Leonard's novels were made into a few satisfying films, but I doubt he gained many readers from it. Back to the film: since Tommy Lee Jones has such a appealing screen persona, I found myself rooting for him to overcome the personification of evil that is the cattle-gun man, but that was only a figment of habit: I was really much pleased with learning that none of the good people were going to survive. That's called catharsis, an old Greek term best understood by looking it up under Aristotle. Definitely a superior film, as comes along only every five years or so.

Violence: Most of the violence stems from a sociopath, utterly without emotion or concern. Likely to give young teens nightmares.
