Once upon a time there were Westerns. Then one day, along came Clint Eastwood. Then another one day in 1992, he made the film Unforgiven. That movie seemed to put the lid on the coffin of the whole Western movie genre.... Appaloosa seems to mosey into theaters as if nothing ever happened. It is a downright casual film starring Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen, playing two partners who make a living upholding the law in the small-town west.
With ping-pong as the theme behind this movie, I didn't know what to expect. I loved it! Very funny! Walken is hysterical in his role. Great writing. My kind of humor.....not so much the slapstick, but the lines that were spoken and the way that they were delivered. No showboating here.
