Watch Those Who Wish Me Dead: is it any good?
First reactions seem to imply the movie is thoroughly entertaining while not ground-breaking. It's been noted that the subject matter (if not setting) has diverged from director Taylor Sheridan's usual shades of grey, and instead delivers a pretty black-and-white experience.
As a straight up and down thriller, though, it's got a lot going for it, and we wouldn't be surprised if we saw the movie itself prove very popular - despite what our writer thought in his Those Who Wish Me Dead review.
