This one of the few and best westerns sense the unforgiven with Eastwood. no green screen just pure beautiful landscape and the characters were right on on their characters. costumes, languages, everything great. the movie has good action and it keeps ya guess'n what's going to happen next. would love to be included in one of their upcoming movies, preferably a western, and that experience would take care of my head real well. i need it too. g friend of Paul, Ed's brother, i got to see this movie and i host watch party's and still cant get enough. yeah a western buff i am. i <more>
also notice a lot when it comes to props. this movie was in tune with the times along as their costumes. the directing i'm sure was just as fun for everyone enjoying there work. everyone i had over to watch "SWEETWATER" was ready to go buy a copy of this movie, unfortunately the movie store only had a few copy's for sale but is ordering more. everyone agrees, this is one bad-ass movie that should get a lot of attention. it's got my 10 thumbs up... Logan and Noah; was great talking to ya. Hope to see you guys sometime and do something. Willie.............
Old-Style Western as Feminist Revenge Flick (by alisonc-1)
In 1880s New Mexico, self-declared prophet Josiah Jason Isaacs is building a church on "God's land." Unfortunately, "God's land" is also inhabited by a farming couple, Miguel Eduardo Noriega and Sarah January Jones , whose attempts to grow crops keep being stymied by Josiah's free-roaming flock of sheep. At the same time, two brothers who happen to be related to the Governor have gone missing, and it seems to lawman Sheriff Jackson Ed Harris that they must have disappeared right in the middle of Josiah's spread. The meeting and interactions between <more>
these characters will bring out their respective histories, misdemeanors and other crimes, and it's anyone's guess who might live to tell the tale.... Although I don't generally like Westerns, I was very impressed at FantAsia 2011 by "Blackthorn," in which Sam Shepard plays an aging Butch Cassidy and Eduardo Noriega has a feature role, as in "Sweetwater" ; I thought for sure Shepard would get lots of acting awards once the film played in wide release, but I don't think it ever got a wide release. Fearful of missing another great Western by assuming it would be in regular theatres any day, I made sure to catch "Sweetwater" this year and I'm glad I did! Ed Harris is amazing as the very eccentric, borderline crazy sheriff and Jason Isaacs is incredibly chilling as the definitely way-over-the-border psychotic preacher. But January Jones was just electric here; sure she looks gorgeous and makes most of the male characters drool, but she's thoroughly independent and absolutely fearless when she decides to take matters into her own hands. The landscape is breath-taking and will make you thirsty just looking at it and the story-telling is marvelous. I hope this has a better fate than "Blackthorn," because it deserves to be seen even by those, like me, who don't tend to like Westerns.
movie with an anti-Christian edge but still a great flick (by rrcharpe)
Although I hugely enjoyed the movie I had a curious thought about the way Hollywood has been presenting Christians the last decade or so during the same time period as the progressive left wingers have taken control of our country . Why is it that in many movies produced in the U.S.A. Christians are portrayed as radicals on par with Islamic terrorists. This movie uses a demented Christian pastor as the evil villain and a Hispanic man and his "White" wife as the put upon good people. What ever happened to the millions of decent Christian people in America's history who helped <more>
the poor and "turned the other cheek" amongst the many good things that Jesus stood for in his day and Christians today stand for? I did really like the movie but can't Hollywood find someone else to kick around than Christians? Just a thought. StocktonRob
Nothing about This Western Is Sugar-Coated (by zardoz-13)
Sophomore helmer Logan Miller's frontier tale of vengeance "Sweetwater" is a solid but savage horse opera that doesn't bite off more than its low-budget can chew. Basically, this Arc Entertainment oater concerns revenge that a young wife exacts when she discovers that a malevolent minister has slain her husband in cold blood. January Jones plays Sarah Ramírez, and she is an exceptional marksman, far better than her spouse. During one scene when they are shooting at targets, Sarah out-shoots him. Before she married her husband Miguel Eduardo Noriega of "The Last <more>
Stand" , she was a painted lady like her mother, Madame Bovary Amy Madigan of "Streets of Fire" , who raised her to ply the same trade. Although neither Logan Miller nor his twin brother scenarist Noah Miller explain how Sarah wound up wedding Miguel, Sarah and her husband borrow money from a lowdown local banker, Hugh Stephen Root of "Red State" , to buy land and build themselves a house. Nearby resides a hypocritical Morman, the Prophet Josiah Jason Isaacs of "Green Zone" , who has two wives, a daughter, and several ranch hands who have followed him from Utah. The Prophet raises sheep. The symbolism is rather obvious but nevertheless apt. One day, the Prophet catches two trespassers on his land who have killed one of his flock and cooked it. Levi Logan Miller and Jacob Noah Miller are brothers. Levi's wife is related to the Territorial Governor so when they disappear without a trace, the chief executive dispatches Sheriff Jackson Ed Harris of "Appaloosa" to find them. Mind you, Harris doesn't play this western lawman with the usual stoic quality with which lawmen are usually depicted. Instead, Jackson is extremely eccentric, if not a little touched in the head. He conducts his investigation and learns that the man who killed Noah shot him with a homemade bullet that contained zinc. The crazy Jackson brings the corpses to Josiah's house and thoroughly enrages him. What Jackson eventually learns is that Josiah murdered not only Levi and Noah, but also that he killed Miquel. After he killed Miquel, Josiah raped Sarah. Life has been rather tough on Sarah. After Miquel disappears, she loses her baby before she could deliver it. Sarah sets out to punish Miquel's killer. Single-handedly, she tracks down all Josiah's men as well as his confederates and guns them down. He gives the man who runs the general merchandise store a lead suppository after she catches him in the act of masturbating while peering through a hole in the wall of his customer's dressing room. Earlier, the storekeeper admired Sarah's form until she poked him in the eye with an umbrella. When Sarah rides out for revenge, she has dressed herself up as a prostitute again.Inspite of its low budget, "Sweetwater" is a handsome looking western with substantial production values. The characters are memorable and vivid, particularly Harris' looney sheriff and Isaacs' crazy prophet. "Avengers" lenser Brad Shield has photographed this entertaining but offbeat distaff western so you can feel the dust, sweat, and violence. Logan doesn't let any grass grow under his feet. Clocking in at 95 minutes, "Sweetwater" qualifies as an above-average sagebrusher. If you love to watch women toting guns and shooting at men, "Sweetwater" is ideal fare for you.
a very controversial and mixed feeling (by rightwingisevil)
when you watched this film. there were many gibberish mambo-jumbo religious crappy monologue or crazy enough talk-to-himself murmurings. and the directing was also quite weird as the film itself. there was an usual cunning vicious and violent religious bully who thought all the vast land was his lord and his own property. he committed murder after murder under the name and excuse of the lord and at the same time whenever he reached the climax when he screwed his female followers, he also praised the lord for his ultimate pleasure guess why all the men and women would cry out in unison <more>
'oh, my god, oh my god' is indeed a Christian mantra during intercourse or love-making? this is a very weird movie, an out-of-the-box very unconventional western, at times funny and ruthless, sometimes clueless and ridiculous. but what made this film above the cheap low budget western genre B movies was 1 most of the actors did great jobs and performed so well that didn't give you a cheap feeling of the average tasteless low budget and disgusting modern day western B movies; 2 the great cinematography of the camera, the wide angle wildness of the landscape, the beautiful light setting control. just by watching the glamorous camera works would worth the money and earned at least 8 stars; 3 although the screenplay was a bit over the top ridiculous, but still quite watchable, good enough to anchor your fat buttocks firmly on the seat to the end. again, a weird mindless clueless absurdity sometimes is not a bad idea.
Mostly absurd but ridiculously fun to watch (by Arit)
There are ways for women to overcome their physical inferiority to men. The heroine of this film, played by January Jones, somehow learns it, and carries out her plans with a vengeance. The film later becomes an absurd but fun ride like "Red Eye" with its female lead replaced by another pretty blond, and set in the spectacular backdrop of the wild, wild New Mexico.Jones is clearly not gunning for major awards here, and striking deep emotions is apparently not a requirement for her part. She needs to look sassy and resolute in her cute costume, and she sufficiently delivers within <more>
that realm.Ed Harris is fantastic as a lunatic sheriff. The performances by the rest of the supporting cast are also sound, especially by Jason Isaacs.Country music heartthrob Jason Aldean is naturally menacing as the bad guy's right hand man. He has a reasonable shot at a moonlighting career in movies of this genre outside his day job as a singer."Sweetwater" will surely rub old school Western fans the wrong way, but if you are open-minded about crossing formats, you just might find this popcorn Western a perfect pastime.
Ed Harris adds spice to a good western (by sergiokapusta)
Just finished watching Sweetwater at the Sundance. Great audience reception! I think we were ready for a renewal of the western, an action packed morality play in an otherwise overly-intellectual festival. January Jones plays Sara, the prostitute turned good housewife. After his husband is killed by maniac prophet Josiah Jason Isaacs, in role tailor made for his cold features she goes on a cleaning spree a-la-Dirty Harry. And does she clean up shop! All the bad guys get what they had coming, and in the wild west the only penalty for misbehaving is lead. She does a very credible job as an <more>
avenging angel with a cute face and a purple umbrella. A highly entertaining film, with few good guys but a satisfying morality tale. Ed Harris is a treat as an anachronic elder flower child of the 1970's. I wished to see Sara and Sheriff Jackson ride into the sunset, and meet again in a later film.Overall a highly recommended movie.
