Movie Summary

Kevin Costner
Released:
2003
Rating:
R

Open Range about two free-range cattlemen who must fight for their lives after entering the land of a ruthless owner. Boss Spearman and Charley Waite are old friends who have made a living for many years driving herds of cattle across the country. When they near the town of Harmonville, they send two of their men into town to get supplies. When it is learned that they work for free-rangers, one of the men is severely beaten and jailed. Boss and Charley manage to get their man out of jail, but the message is clear: they are not welcome to graze their herd in the lands near Harmonville. Eventually, the town's corrupt boss, Denton Baxter, makes it clear that he intends to take Boss and Charley's herd from them. As Denton gathers his forces, Boss and Charley must decide whether to flee for their lives or stay and fight.

Metacritic Score

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Say what you like, think what you will, scoff if you have to (and you will definitely have to), but in the final analysis Kevin Knows Westerns.

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    An intensely scenic, refreshingly humanistic oater that dares to be sincere and open-hearted.

  • 40

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Mr. Costner's relentless, root-canal humorlessness turns what might have been an enjoyable B-picture throwback into a ponderous drag.
