    I think I liked The Quick and the Dead when I first saw it fresh from the video store, but I probably like it a lot more now that I have a handle on Sam Raimi's filmography. You could almost say it takes place in the same universe as the Evil Dead stuff - the invulnerable Native almost gets you through the gates of the supernatural - and stylistically, the zooms and pans creates an energetic western revenge story with a sports movie twist. A big, memorable cast of characters (and actors, a lot of names in this) converges on a lawless town to take part in a dueling contest filled with high-octane action and natural tension created by several heroes taking part (will they have to meet each other in combat?). A great, atypical role for Sharon Stone, well supported by the likes of Russell Crowe, Leonardo diCaprio, Gene Hackman and others. Great fun. I feel like Raimi fans don't talk about it enough. 11 months 4 weeks ago

    I cant understand all the disrepute. The Quick and the Dead is a great assemblage of weird and interessting characters, each charakter comes with his own backstory. The duell-procedure is kind of unique, one of my favourit westerns. 1 year 8 months ago
