Jane Got A Gun (***1/2): Hell’s coming with me

O'Connor has not done nearly as much as a director of his caliber since his incredible last effort, Warrior, mentioned earlier. If nothing else, Jane Got A Gun shows that he can take other people's material and make something that we can feel. It's a good, memorable western that allows us to know we come from a stark reality. It is a film that college students of today should watch before they make another demand for safe space. People can survive a lot tougher battles than words.

How much one likes this film depends on how much one roots for Woodley as an actress and female heroines in general. It's not a bad film, if it is a let down from the first episode. Take it from this uninspired review that I won't be standing in line to see if it get's better with the next film.
