No Country For Old Men

Directors: Ethan and Joel Coen

Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Woody Harrelson

Cert: 15

The Coens are back with a bang – usually a gunshot bang – with this superior thriller that combines all their best elements of excitement, action and dark humour.

Brolin plays a hunter who comes across a stark scene of bloody mayhem – bodies, vehicles and a stash of drugs and money – in the desert. So he does what anybody would do: he takes off with the drugs and money, and is, naturally, pursued by evil thugs who want it back.

Everything happens in a Coen movie, and high-octane entertainment is delivered in every frame … by a cast that never loses its grip.

Star Rating: 5/5
