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.
If Jane Got a Gun had been interested in giving its main character any power of her own, instead of acquiring a weapon, she might have gotten the heck out of Dodge and joined Furiosa and Rey for a party out in the desert.
