Forsaken

ForsakenKiefer Sutherland plays a man who must make amends with his estranged father (Donald Sutherland) in order to protect their home from relentless land-grabbers. (R – 90 minutes)

“Forsaken” embraces the classic western’s roots and embodies them in such a way that will very much please fans of the genre. Granted, it does not necessarily bring anything new to the table but that is precisely why it works so well. Director Jon Cassar has constructed a piece of cinema that is essentially a blast from the past – pleasantly old-fashioned in not only its narrative approach but also its atmosphere and characters. The plot’s pacing and development take a bit of a dip in the second act but the final showdown is sheer movie magic.
