    A Mildly Fresh Twist on Western Classics
    "The Harder They Fall" (2021) revitalizes the Western genre with a diverse cast and fresh take on classic tropes. Director Jeymes Samuel's stylized approach and stellar ensemble deliver a visually captivating and thematically rich experience. The film blends gritty realism with contemporary flair, backed by a standout soundtrack. While some critique forced dialogue, clean costumes, and Western clich├ęs, it remains an average movie with merits. Memorable for its stunning visuals, strong performances, and unique perspective, it's a must-watch for those seeking a modern spin on the traditional Western. I would also recommend watching Posse (1993) in the same style.

    Better than I expected
    I was bored and this was recommended on Netflix, had no expectations, but this did not disappoint at all! I guess there is still some hope for Netflix to have decent movies in their selection.

    This movie is perfect mix of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Django. Might be something else too, but those two are the one's I find most similarities.

    Nice shooting/fighting scenes and plenty of very beautiful scenery/cinema shots all across the whole movie. Also, I liked the build-up to introduce the "main bad guy" of the film, that happened to be the only actor I even recognized clearly from the cast.

    I only watched 37 minutes, this is how ridiculous this is. The music seems to be well thought of but other than that the movie completely unbearable. The acting is b class to say the least, it's like watching a bad rap video clip from the 90's, everyone is posing for the camera for no apparent reason pretending to be having some significant thought, actually no.. correction (!) it's more of a pseudo -rap clip with all those taking part desperately trying to convince the viewers of their badass-ness! Supposedly this is loosely based on a true story, if you're in the mood for a true story you can watch Sharknado instead the latter contains the same amount of truth. My top tip? Avoid.

    So bad it's legitimately embarrassing
    I was actually laughing at this movie throughout the whole thing, it's THAT bad. From the boring plot to the cheesy characters and flat acting this entire movie was a train wreck. If you're on the fence about seeing this movie, don't. Save your time and do/watch something that will actually entertain you.

    Something to chew on...
    Quinten Tarantino fan here. If you happen to be a fellow Q. T. fan but happen to have problem with the violence, language, gore, and dark macabre humor of this film - your problem is not with the script - but with the color of it's cast and it is you who has some work to do.

    Was hooked before the opening credits.
