Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released almost exactly 11 years after Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, Kevin Costner's Open Range proved yet again that the Western is the classic American genre. While it lacks the thematic impact of Eastwood's masterpiece, Costner's first film since 1997's ill-fated The Postman returns the actor/director of Dances With Wolves to the open prairies of America--in this case the free-range frontier of 1882--where legal "free-grazing" cattle drives were falling prey to empire-building land-owners. In the wake of territorial murder, free-grazing cowboys Boss (Robert Duvall) and Charley (Costner) seek vengeful justice against the ruthless rancher (Michael Gambon) who threatens their law-abiding survival. A feisty ally (the late Michael Jeter, in his next-to-final film role) and a doctor's sister (Annette Bening) offer support during climactic shootouts, masterfully staged with the shock and suddenness of real-life gunfire. Rich in character development and thick-hided humor, this handsome production redeemed Costner's directorial career with a well-told story (by Craig Storper, based on Lauran Paine's novel The Open Range Men), flawless performances, and stunning Canadian locations. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars KEVIN COSTNER HAS MADE HIS IMMORTAL MASTERPIECE June 18 2004
Format:DVD
This work is simply extraordinary. Forget about Dance with wolves!.
This film is light years ahead that one. Costner has grown up as film maker and human being : he absorbed the mythological mood and epic spirit , two fundamentals elements of the western mood.
He followed the lines of the mythological narrative.
Four men : three generations : one man who still 's a kid . a rescued teenager (Button) from Texas , a middle aged man Charlie (Costner) and finally the boss Boss Spearman (a coincidence in the meaning of his name?) the wise but hard fighter Robert Duvall land in nowhere . They have no comittment with the outer world . They live outdoors and are gipsy cowboys . They are a little family with that charming pet.
Suddenly , the evil Baxter and his gunfighters will emerge , true villains and obviously a clear pattern western mob . They have a town under his own rules , even the marschall.
The spark light that will originate the expected duel will appear : the feeling of revenge will permeate the viewer.
In this sense the film is a great tribute to The Seven Samurais , The magnificent seven and Ride the high country .
The film has a superb photography ; the shots are unforgettable , the mountains , the valley , the river are an amazing background where the facts and other little bits will support the dramatis personae.
Duvall that cosmical actor is a spiritual guide for Costner , he's his father in the real sense of the word.
They establish a magical rapport in the movie : the inner values about the freedom , the private property and the sense of not being under the orders of no one , will be the starting point for this magnificent western.
Duvall is extarordinary expressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars OPEN RANGE June 15 2004
Format:DVD
Open Range is just a wonderful film. It has a very well written script and of course the flawless diector Kevin Costner who does such an excellent job. Also Staring Kevin Costner,Robert Duvall and Annette Benning and a wonderful surport cast. I can not fault the film with its beautiful locations. The script and direction from Kevin Costner really brings everything together. The story is so sweet and heart warming. The poor little dog ruuning around so cute and then killed so sadly and animal much loved by the men and the nice touch of placing in the grave of his killed frind, so very lovely. The way Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall really cared about each other and all in the film. The caring of another person. The love for Annette Benning which is heartwarming and her love back something we all wish for. The fight of the men to ovecome violence and their love for their wounded friend and death of another.It was nice to have happy ending for a charge. On of the great films directed by Kevin Costner and staring it. I feel this film should have had really good press as it is a winner. So much love in the film but not one grain of sugar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brutally Honest Depiction May 11 2004
Format:DVD
"Open Range" may be a fictional story, but the events that occurred within it were brutally honest depictions of what happened in the 1880's.
The story moves along at a somewhat slow pace, but you have to remember that the pace is used to develop the characters and the storyline. It also helps to enhance the believability of the story, e.g. the waiting for the killers, moving the herd across the plains, etc. Costner's depiction of a violent man trying to shake off his past is perfect. Once he slips his old skin back on, however, the cold-blooded intent with which he seeks out his enemies is played to perfection. He becomes a killer. Duvall's tough-as-nails "Boss" character is memorable as the older, wiser leader of the free-grazing group. He becomes the level that keeps Costner from losing all control throughout the film. The rest of the cast does a superb job. Annette Bening deserves praise for the sheer looks of terror that cross her face in this film. She surprised me in this one.
As it was with the characters, so it is with the action of the movie. It's a very accurate depiction of a gunfight in the Old West. When people shoot, they miss...often. Even the heroes of the film miss their shots frequently. In the late 1800's, guns still weren't up to par with today's standards. Shooting at and missing someone from close proximity was the norm. When a bullet did hit its mark, the target didn't always die instantly. This is shown throughout the fight sequences in this film. At times they are disturbing, which I believe is the whole point of such scenes in this movie. You don't know if you should cheer for the good guys or have pity on the bad ones because of how violent the deaths in this film are.
Many people have called this a traditional Western.

By J. Tupone TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a really entertaining film. The first time I caught it on a movie channel I couldn't pull myself away from the television. The classic struggle between good men and evil men forms a good foundation for the plot of this movie. There is no question about who is right, who is wrong and what needs to be done about it. Costner and Duvall do a great job playing the roles of honest, hard-working men who are just trying to make their way in the world and live by a simple code of honour that most of us can understand and appreciate. Apart from Eastwood's Unforgiven, this is the best western I've seen in recent years.
