Natalie Portman stars in this western concerning a woman who has to defend her home against a group of outlaws. Gavin O'Connor handles directing duties, with Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton co-starring. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
A Western with potential for feminist table-turning and old-fashioned violence, "Jane Got a Gun" is a major letdown. Despite being co-produced by Portman, the movie sells her character short at nearly every turn.
Jane Got a Gun is a serviceable, by-the-numbers western. I'm glad it survived the many obstacles of its production, but I'm not sure why the cast and crew fought so hard to save this rather safe, conventional movie.
