No Country for Old Men

This movie won various awards, so I was looking forward to watch it. In addition, it’s made by Coen-brothers, who have given several good movies.

The story deals around a guy, Llewelyn Moss, who finds a truck surrounded by several bodies and lots of cash. He takes the cash, and provokes chain reactions which cannot be controlled. A sociopath assassin (exceptionally portrayed by Javier Bardem) is hired to recover the money, which are taken by Llewelyn. A cat-mouse game is started between them and the brutal assassin will destroy everything which comes in his way.

The movie shows the hunt very well and has an intense atmosphere which a thriller should have. But the thrilling experience slows down during the climax, and rather changes to drama. This was surprising and boring. The makers removed the biggest plus of the movie. In the ending, you’ll understand the message, but I think this could have been shown better than what the makers did.

Rating: 4 of 6
