Critic Reviews for Badland
"Badland" is ultimately too beholden to the past to be as energized as it should be.
Justin Lee's indie Western should satisfy genre enthusiasts with a strong cast and an entertaining spin on a familiar story.
Despite using plenty of the usual tropes of the genre (silent, but appealing anti-hero, a woman in peril, an underdog fight against evil types, etc.) Badlands stumbles.
Given a few more passes on the script, take out the chapter brakes and maybe punch up the action, Badland could have been a modern-day cowboy flick worth the near two hour run time.
Lee's film never escapes its B-movie roots, nor does it try to, embracing its own pompousness.
