Jane Got a Gun (15)

Action, Drama, Western

A woman asks her ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.

The critical consensus

Natalie Portman produces and stars in a well-intentioned, if hardly radical western.

***(*)(*)Karen Krizanovich, The List, 18/04/2016

It was a troubled production, but replacement director Gavin O’Connor has done an impressive job.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 22/04/2016

If it packed in half as much drama as its shoot managed, this would be a Western to remember. Sadly, this sluggish fable arrives half-cocked.

**(*)(*)(*)Phil De Semlyen, Empire Online, 22/04/2016

A very moderate adventure.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 21/04/2016

The western will have to look elsewhere for a new saviour.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 18/04/2016

No great passion is being conjured up on screen, just an exhausted sense of relief that things might not be as bad as all that.

***(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 24/04/2016

It’s all perfectly passable, but rather perfunctory, a word that could never be applied to one of Ramsay’s films.
