    Starring Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black and about a billion other movies) and the beautiful Cate Blanchett (Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings trilogy) as an old white-man-wannabe-native-american in 1885 New Mexico and his estranged daughter who is a practicing healer (kind of an amateur doctor I suppose).

    This movie follows the two mains, and Tommy's grand-daughter (Cate's daughter obviosuly), as they track a witch doctor and his merry band of kidnappers who have killed Cate's live-in boyfried and Paco the stable hand, and abducted her other daughter.

    Val Kilmer makes a cameo as a fat distracted army officer who can't be bothered to help out. As does the preacher from Deadwood (HBO Sundays, right after the Sopranos, cocksucker)

    The movie actually wasn't too bad. There are some funny exchanges between Tommy Lee and a few natives, the witch doctor is one nasty looking fellow, and there's an interesting mix of contemporary technology and native american mysticism.

    The story isn't entirely predictable, the acting is good, the dialogue is interesting, the scenery is great.

    I liked it.

    On a scale of 2 thumbs up to 4 thumbs down, I'd give it a thumb up.

    This was a decent movie, even though I've never been a cate blanchett fan.

    Shit, none of them act well really. Most people just act like themselves. That's why their characters are all more or less the same.

    The only good actors are the ones who show range, like Billy Bob, or Robin Williams.

    As much as I don't like the political views of either one of those two, I have to admit they are damn good at their craft!

    I wasn't aware either one was very open about their political views. What are they?

    I think she is a great actress but I agree with Jackass, why do people think she is so hot? I don't see it? Just because you are a great actress doesn't make you beautiful.
    ...Salma Hayek, she's hot...Cate Blanchett...not...
