"Appaloosa" [B]

This is not a thriller by any means. It is at times intense, but the pacing is stately, though not brooding. This seems intentional by director Ed Harris. It is not a buddy comedy or a romantic comedy, though it exhibits some undertones of both. This is absolutely intentional by writer Ed Harris. And it's not your classic Western. The shootouts are realistic and over before you know it and none of the characters are superhuman. No. This is gritty, down to earth, offbeat and competently done. Enjoyable if you have patience and interest.
