Movie Review by Jacob
March 22nd, 2007

Quite possibly the best western I have seen.
Of course I have a weakness for John Wayne movies, let's face it the man was the epitome of any western movie actor.
The Cowboy's brings a new approach to the western movie; sure you got your horses, your tough cowboy drawl and gunfights and beatings to boot but there's a new side to this particular western that offers some actual intellectual thought and symbolism.
Cowboy's tells the story of an aging rancher, Wil Andersen who has a great herd of cattle to transport across some of the meanest country there is. The Gold rush hits hard and Wil is forced to seek the employment of school-aged boys from 13 to 18 and they aren't exactly what Wil had in mind but he grits his teeth and teaches them what it really means to be a cowboy, and more importantly what it is to be a MAN.
The movie provides plenty of moral to it about coming of age and respect and the duty of a man and meaning of companionship. A great snappy and stylish dialogue along with a great score by none other than John Williams makes The Cowboy's the perfect movie for those seeking adventure, those who enjoy "the duke" and westerns and those just looking for a enjoyable movie.
