SERAPHIM FALLS (2006 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Seraphim Falls—flavored like a Sergio Leone/Clint Eastwood western—pulls off the whole western entertainment theme well. While it’s a complete surprise to see Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan cast in this genre, they both more than pull their weight and show extreme expertise interpreting a western-themed script. The story is well done; the script is great. There are no lagging moments in this film.

Storyline

Gideon (Pierce Brosnan) pursued relentlessly by Carver (Liam Neeson) and a posse stays one step ahead of certain death until a final struggle with Carver resolves itself in an unexpected climatic ending.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director David Von Ancken for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Stan Wlodkowski for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Hayes (Michael Wincott), Railcrew Foreman (Xander Berkeley), Minister Abraham (Tom Noonan), Henry (Kevin J. O’Connor), Kid (John Robinson), Madame Louise (Anjelica Huston), and Parsons (Ed Lauter).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is a hard-core film that follows the 1960s through 1970s western movie line with strong relationship to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly or Once Upon a Time in the West. It’s not soft.
