Slow boring and predictable. 2 stars at most.

I definitely enjoy westerns,( I was raised in TX’s & love seeing men & women in cowboy wear!)
Great bunch of actors too, I’m on a Michael Fassbender phase. Enjoyable story & recommend it to watch.👏

I'm not a Western fan, but I thought this movie was really good. I cared for the story and characters.

Above-average Western with a good cast and beautiful cinematography; definitely worth watching.

I loved it. Paced as it should have been. A brilliant, tragic Western with a wonderful core premise. A young, love struck kid who crosses Hell, high water, and the globe to find his one true love, Rose. I will look forward to more from John Maclean.

The movie is slow, but I didn't mind that; given the title, I expected it. I enjoyed this nontraditional Western and its setting. In my opinion, it is similar to and much better than The Hateful Eight, which was also slow but additionally painfully long--exactly twice as long as Slow West, in fact.

I don't understand DebAK's comment "Nothing to do here with reality or make-believe, or casting black actors. . ." Huh? I mean, it's either realistic or unrealistic, right? Anyway, I can see how this would be polarizing, but I thought it was a solid, occasionally subversive take on one of the most formulaic of genres. The cast is really good, although Kodi Smit-McPhee ("The Road") seemed a little miscast. You might recognize the Mountain from "Game of Thrones" in a small part. The violence was more deeply felt than in more action-based westerns, which I thought was a strength. It's the first film from the Scottish director John Maclean, who used to be in the Beta Band. For those who like their westerns a little dark and a little unusual. I didn't find it slow at all. Filmed in New Zealand.
