    The Harder They Fall

    ★★★★

    A refreshing take on swashbuckling Western genre with interesting escapist alternate history sprinkled on top. But still did not forget their root as one character showed his visibly scar on his neck just to indicate he survived a lynching attempt.

    The characters are well-written and goodly memorable. Don't know about you, but I felt their every bit of characters traits were being emphasized in every captured frames. Whether in actors performance, the close-ups, charismatic stills and poses, in every songs…

    ★★½

    ★★★

    Beware of minor spoilers below!

    My rating stars for this movie are mainly for the action sequences and kinetic cinematography. There were impressive and so damn close as if we were there. The same feeling when I watched Extraction (2020).

    Other than that, this movie is just another MCU formulaic movies. It seemed that MCU couldn't do without McGuffin to drive plot, interjecting deus ex machina for plot convenience, humanizing the antoganist with the cheapest trick there is; give them…
