The Reviews for Forsaken (2016) 720p

Nicely done western from father and son SutherlandReviewed bysubxerogravityVote: 7/10

It's a slow drive that ends with a sudden violent car crash, like a good western should.

Kiefer Sutherland plays a soldier who waited far too long after the war to put down his guns, but something tragic hits him hard, and he tries to change his ways, with the help of his father, played by Sutherland's real life father, Donald Sutherland who plays a small town preacher who disapproved of the life his son once lead, and is threaten to get back into when a banker tries to buy out the town by any means necessary.

It's a very typical western story made timeless by it's focus on being character driven. I don't know if this is the first time Kiefer and Donald have done a movie together, but it must have help with the relationship between their characters.

But my favorite interaction was between Kiefer's John Henry and Michael Wincott's Dave Turner, who plays a rival gunslinger hired to influence town people off their land. The mutual respect these men showed for each other despite being on different sides of the coin was masterful, something I never seen done so well in a western.

Brian Cox was also in the movie playing the banker that hired Dave Turner. His role as James McCurdy is what tells us that this timeless Western was made in 2015, because he's all about taking people's homes who don't want to leave, and his level of cold heartiness is done brilliantly, reflected this day and era.

Though I'm sure she was trying to due some respectable acting in this film, Demi More is still some impressive eye candy.

The story is nothing out of the ordinary, but it's strengthen by a great set of actors doing their thing, lead by father and son team Sutherland. Good western.

Good old fashioned westernReviewed byswchamberlainVote: 7/10

This was a good movie, it had a good story, the movie as a whole wasn't stretched out too long, it had some good acting, and the fact that real life father and son played father and son in the movie was just a great idea. It does feel like it drags on at times, and it kind of makes you sit on the edge of your seat waiting for the good guys to start standing up for themselves but it is something that is completely necessary for the story. The bad guy does drop the F bomb a few times, which I suppose isn't breathtaking but it feels out of place because that it is the only swear word spoken in the entire movie by a single person, multiple times, so it actually feels out of place. So here you have a guy dropping the F bomb and nobody reacts to it, not sure if they get it, don't get it and its one of those things where there is either too much swearing or not enough because its only one word by one person. I like the movie though and if I were to compare it to anything I think Clint Eastwoods Unforgiven would be a good comparison. If you liked that movie then you will definitely like Forsaken.

Flat, uninspiring modern day western yarnReviewed bydavideo-2Vote: 4/10

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

In 1872, gunslinger John Henry Clayton (Kiefer Sutherland) returns home from battle, hoping to mend bridges with his father, the Reverend William Clayton (Donald Sutherland), who disapproved of his life of violence. William coldly tells his son that his mother is dead, and things don't look like they'll shape up any time soon. But John Henry may have a chance to redeem himself when he crosses paths with a gang of brutes, led by the ruthless James McCurdy (Brian Cox), who are trying to force landowners out of their homes in order to get a big railway track built.

It can often be the case that something that might have first of had potential many years ago doesn't have the same impact if it happens today. The pairing of legendary actor Donald Sutherland and his not so legendary (but still something of a *24* cultural icon) son Kiefer might have rocked the world ten/twenty years ago, but today it seems their pairing only amounts to this underwhelming little addition to the gently re-emerging western genre, that has all the right ingredients but no recipe to give it its own spice.

Forsaken plays like the textbook genre training manual, plodding through by the numbers, and ticking off every cliché as it goes along. It's the most standard, uninspiring old west screenplay you can imagine, that never dares to deviate from the standard formula. Performances wise, lead star Sutherland has no meat to chew on in a largely emotionless role, but such is the weakness of the script that even a tearful confessional in the church doesn't have the impact it could have. Sutherland Sr. has a quiet dignity as his pious father, while Cox has his usual air of menace as the villain, which you know he is as he's the only character to keep saying 'f**king' over and over.

With a further support cast in the shape of Michael Wincott and Demi Moore as the love interest, there's certainly no shortage of talent. It's all okay if you want something to just gently relax to, but a big letdown for those who like their westerns more dynamic. **
