Let’s just get it out of the way and say that Jeff Bridges was fabulous in this movie. Having said that, I can spend my two remaining sentences telling you that the lack of good development of a female lead made this movie incredibly weak. I spent so much time questioning her motivation that it detracted from the movie and perhaps if they would have given a good fifteen minute chunk over to her character development, this would have been a good movie.
p.s. It was really nice to see the desert in the middle of a cold, wet and green Portland winter.
