All women are whores?
I did not really like this movie. It's worth maybe a 6.3 on my imdb scale.
Anywho, I read a few rants and didn't see anyone bring this up : why are all women whore in this movie?
Well okay, there are 2 women in this movie and only one of them is actually a whore. However, the wife was OBVIOUSLY attracted to Ben Wade ("I didn't think he would be like that", the long stares and what not).
I mean, I totally understand there were going for that charming devil, but Russell Crowe did NOT pull that off - at all.
Just saying stuff like "you've got beautiful green eyes like the sea" does not make your character automatically charming.
Analogically, it was like watching Situation from Jersey Shore hooking up with some laughably dumb bimbos, just with less 6 packs and spray tan.
That detail, to me, added insult to the injury as I agree with most of the rants on this board.
But sure - it's a western! Let's rate it high since cowboys are cool! And let's not watch classic like the good the bad and the ugly. No sir. Russell Crowe and his sh!t acting is all we need!
