Jane Got A Gun Review - AVClub

AVClub: The post-Civil War Western Jane Got A Gun wastes no time getting to its premise. Early on, Jane Hammond (Natalie Portman) and her young daughter spy husband and father Bill (Noah Emmerich) approaching their modest home from a distance, on horseback. They’re excited to see him, until distress flashes across Jane’s eyes and Bill promptly slumps over and falls off his horse. It turns out he’s shot up with half a dozen bullets, just barely making it home alive. This brief sequence proceeds with an efficiency bordering on truncation; lingering a little bit on Bill’s slumped posture, or on Portman as she realizes not all is right, could have drawn out the moment effectively.

The story is too old to be commented.
