No Country for Old Men

When No Country for Old Men was released at the movies, it received accolades from around the globe and even Oscar recognition. Masterfully directed by Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, the story revolves around Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) who discovers the remnants of a massacre while hunting. Littered with dead bodies, Llewelyn uncovers guns, ammunition, heroin and money.

Deciding to take the money, our anti-hero finds one survivor but decides to leave him behind only to have second thoughts during the night and comes back to give this man water. Unfortunately for Llewelyn, he is discovered by those wanting the return of the money and the drugs which starts a deadly game of cat and mouse where a psychopath hit man (Javier Bardem) who values life on the toss of the coin is sent after the man who stole the money. The pair are joined by disillusion Sheriff Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), on the verge of retirement begins investigating the murder scene as he attempts to finish his last job by saving the life of Llewelyn.

Brilliant acting by Brolin, Bardem and Jones, the directors put together an amazing movie set against the harsh landscapes of America and "Cowboy" culture that is one of the most impressive crime dramas of the new millennium. Be warned though, the ending is not what you would expect, however it is definitely worth the thrilling ride from start to finish.

No Country for Old Men is brilliant!

Presented in an aspect ratio of 16:9 widescreen, Dolby Digital 5.1, the video and audio quality is perfect that nicely accompanies the amazing cinematography of this movie. Some interesting special features behind the psyche of the movie will leave viewers wanting more and questions answered.
