As we all know, whenever someone wants to get revenge in a Western, they have to first strip naked and stand poignantly beside a campfire on an otherwise pitch black night. Sweetwater continues that tradition when Sarah Ramirez (January Jones) starts killing a bunch of people that did her wrong.
The Sundance movie also features Jason Isaacs as a murderous preacher and Ed Harris as a tap-dancing sheriff, and it currently doesn’t have a US release date (straight to DVD?).
The trailer is a faulty kind of mash-up attempting to make it simultaneously seem like 3:10 to Yuma and Django Unchained. So, not great. You’ll also notice that they don’t showcase a ton of speaking from Jones (a bad sign), but with the possibility of Harris and Isaacs going over the top, there might be some gold in them hills.
Sidenote: the film is also being called Sweet Vengeance.
Double sidenote: don’t do an image search for “Sweetwater movie” unless you need a picture for a movie news post you’re writing or if you don’t mind being surprised by a topless, gun-wielding January Jones.
Would you watch it?
