Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Routine fast-paced Western that was surprisingly popular during its theater release and is still very popular among NRA members for its unabashed love of guns. Rated: B- May 18, 2021 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film What it lacks in moral complexity it makes up for in emotional depth, and Perset is definitely one to watch out for. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 24, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Translation bad is the, gist but gets the it of. Okay film the is. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review laurie s I cannot believe the French police are this unprofessional and amateurish. The script needed tighting up and better directorship and to be more realistic. Overall it was a bit silly. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Better in style than story, it has a dark atmosphere throughout, but there's nothing upbeat in the plot whatsoever. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Colt 45 is predictable but offers some great action scenes. Not bad overall Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
