Review: No Country for Old Men

Sometimes I get it, sometimes I don’t. For this year’s most viable Oscar contender (8 noms, tieing Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood), I don’t see it at all. Then again, I don’t like the Coen Brothers that much.
This movie is pretty ordinary, a nice mix of drama, crime and thriller elements. I have to admit that the acting was good, but the story and directing, I see nothing that special. There’s no deeper moral underground, nor do we really get to know the characters. It’s mostly just see and forget. For more action and gore, I still suggest the non-Oscar nominated Rambo instead.7-.
