      Gary Z I've appreciated this insightful, spiritually exciting movie for decades! It's pure art, cinematography is excellent, a bit choppy on the editing, but it picks up & like an acid trip lulls you along in a journey of super hallucinogenics: creepy bugs, snakes & visions that'll blow your mind! A must see for those with creative, expressive mind & eyes! I highly rate this film, a work of art! 5 Stars! Garyt ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Adam E Released in 2004, Renegade was a very loose adaptation the French/Belgian comic book series Blueberry, and it starred Vincent Cassel as a U.S. Marshal who was partly raised by Native Americans. The cast also includes Michael Madsen, Juliette Lewis and Ernest Borgnine. The classic comics were illustrated by Jean Giraud, also known as Moebius, so adapting the striking visual style established in the books to the big screen was always going to be a challenge, especially for a French production. Surprisingly, the film's budget was quite high and its straight-to-DVD release in the U.S. hardly earned it much attention. Critically, it wasn't particularly well received outside of French-speaking countries, or even back home, but it got some praise here and there for at least trying something a bit different with the Western genre. Indeed, this isn't your typical Spaghetti Western, especially by the time you get to the film's trippy third act. And although it's pretty much nothing like the comics both in terms of tone and visuals, it's shot with enough flair and creativity that you can tell it was based on something pretty unique and the final burst of CG madness is clearly a homage to Moebius' more surreal works. There is something refreshing about how unusual this movie is. The plot centers around Mike Donovan/Blueberry (Cassel) and his nemesis Wallace Sebastian Blount (Madsen), who once got a prostitute killed in front of him, as they make their way towards a mountain where they both take part in a shamanic ritual that might save or take away their lives. Along the way, Donovan meets Maria Sullivan (Lewis) who wants revenge for her father (played by Geoffrey Lewis) after he is killed by Blount. It's a solid cast but, unfortunately, the actors often struggle with an occasionally weak script and, while Vincent Cassel looks the part, he doesn't really command the screen as much as you'd expect him to. For all its visual bells and whistles, Renegade has some serious pacing issues and its bold moves towards the end are undermined by a rather dull second act. Furthermore, as inventive as its ending may be, it'll likely leave you more confused than impressed. Renegade won't be for everyone. Those expecting a faithful adaptation of the comics, a more traditional Western or an action-packed adventure will be disappointed but if you're up for something a bit weirder and more experimental, this is worth trying once. Uneven yet intriguing flop. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review Elvis D Basado en una serie de comics, Blueberry es algo que nunca antes se había visto en el mundo de los westerns. Comúnmente, las historias de westerns llegan a tocar el tema sobre la búsqueda del oro, pero esta película, por otro lado, se centra en la búsqueda espiritual orientándose al chamanismo. Los nativos siempre formaron parte del cine de western, pero nunca se ha explorado a fondo el chamanismo que siempre han sido esencial en las culturas nativas. Desde el momento que la película empieza, se anuncia lo que vendrá por el ritmo que tiene. Es un western bastante oscuro y maduro con un ritmo sigiloso. Se siente como un western normal al principio, pero con un tono adulto más alto que los westerns no suelen recurrir tanto. Luego, cuando Blueberry finalmente decide adentrarse al mundo de los chamanes para enfrentar a Wallace y entender mejor lo que busca, la película empieza a volverse más surrealista. Ya en el tercer acto, se convierte en un viaje de ácido con secuencias CGI que no se alejan del viaje alucinógeno visto en 2001: A Space Odyssey. Se trata de un western bastante místico con un argumento profundo. Una película que no es fácil de procesar para algunos y es claro que Blueberry es un western diferente a lo que uno está acostumbrado a ver en las películas de esta categoría. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 8/10. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/20/23 Full Review Pedro T The worst movie adaptation of a classic BD character in history. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/23 Full Review Audience Member The legendary western comic series character Lt. Blueberry is made into a cinematographical effect study where one closeup follows another, followed by a slowmo or two, added with exaggerated sound and a string of camera angles in a dusty landscape where everything is directed and finally edited to be slow and mystical, trying hard to become magical but without purpose. There is a story about a sacred mountain in there and some love and revenge, all basically lost in the visual mishmash, but also due to a partly mistaken cast who is constantly forced to overact and contribute to the slow dusty and effectful picture line. The result is tedious and conspicuous, and there is little to find from the original comic series. Except from maybe his broken nose, Vincent Cassel is not Blueberry, and none of the characters from the comic are either represented, just some stylistic copies. The best and most interesting acting performances are by some of those who play Apache, particularly in the intro part, when it's something close to magic. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Pegue o pior filme que você já existiu na vida e multiplique por 10, esse será Blueberry - Desejo de Vingança.

      Will Self London Evening Standard I have no requirement that film genres, any more than literary ones, should be pure, but it's difficult to imagine that an enthusiastic audience for this stoners' western would comprise anyone apart from crystal-dangling deadheads.
