Rating: 10/10

22 years after "The Unforgiven", a new classic has arrived on screens. Finally, a movie that is worth the price of the (way too high, nowadays) ticket. The movie is a western, without twirls or fripperies. The classic, evergreen, canonical revenge plot, splendidly photographed, directed and interpreted. The dirty, twisted face of Mikkelsen is rock solid. The man is hurt, never broken, and gets his final revenge no matter the personal cost. Hollywood has lost the capability of producing non-bullshit movies, Europe comes helping :) John Wayne, James Stewart, Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood are probably welcoming Mikkelsen in the hall of fame.
