1. What I Loved And Hated

What I Loved

The Story

The Harder They Fall
Regina King, Idris Elba and LaKeith Stanfield

The movie’s story is the usual revenge story we know and absolute love but in a cool western setting that in all honesty elevates the stories greatness because of the accents (Lol) and that twist. The story does not feel too bloated like it’s trying to give you a lot of things at once and it’s also greatly paced like it’s not slow nor is it too fast.

A lot of the dialogue and moments are really funny too but it’s not like every scene has a funny moment, the funny is given at the right time like the “I wasn’t the only one” moment which was really funny and the “It’s a white city” joke that was also really funny because of what followed. Also it was really cool having a western movie that does not throw the n word around every 3 scenes.

The Performances

Regina King in The Harder They Fall

The Harder They Fall had a lot GREAT actors and all of them were giving their best perfomance of all time and in all honesty for some of the actors it was one of their best of all time. LaKieth Stanfield gave a really really great perfomance and he was the highlight of the entire movie for me, not only because of his perfomance but also because of his character and how well he was written.

Actually, that’s something I sas throughout the movie. Really great actors giving great perfomances because their characters were perfectly written, none of the character felt unnecessary or generally bad they were all great and actors gave greater perfomances. This movie was just black excellence and I was so proud watching it.

The Soundtrack

Oh God the soundtrack in this was GREAT, with westerns I feel like the music is one of the things that really sell the movie because they really enhance the intensity of a scene (When need to be) and this movie had a lot of that. The soundtrack was a mix of newly recorded music and some old but great music that made watching this movie really fun because God Damn the music made some scenes so great.

The Third Act

Jonathan Majors & Idris Elba in The Harder They Fall

This movie’s third act was really really amazing. The action, The emotional deaths, twists and my god the blood made this an extremely great third act and made the build up worth it unlike SOME MOVIES (Yes I’m talking about Dune). The ending did not leave you with a bunch of questions but it actually left you hoping for a sequel even though it make no sense for there to be one.

What I Hated

Nothing, the movie’s trailer showed us a great a movie and after seeing the entire movie I was not disappointed, it was everything I expected and a lot more.

2. Should You Watch it?

Yes you definitely should, This movie is one of the best Western movies we’ve gotten in a long time and It may not be extremely unique but it delivered an impressive story that was performed by some of the greatest actors in the industry, add to that some amazing cinematography. This movie is all kinds of perfect and you should check it out as soon as you get time to do so.

Out Of 10 I would give this movie a perfect 10 because it has some of my favourite actors of all time, a great story, great action sequences and great soundtrack.


The Harder They Fall is a brilliant movie that does not disappoint by giving us a good story and does not waste it’s collection of amazing actors, this movie was a good investment for Netflix and I hope they make more movies like this. Also thank you Hover for this.
