Based on this http://www.theskinny.co.uk/film/interviews/john-maclean-slow-west-michael-fassbender-interview
it was generic in a good way, had everything you'd want in a Western. It was also very funny, and moved along at a good pace with plot happenings, I was worried it might be slow in a boring sense but it was fun.
Small criticisms - it's quite obvious it's a first feature for the director, and feels a little bit student-filmy in places. The lead kid's Scottish accent isn't brilliant. Also women and Native Americans don't get much to say, but it is quite a traditional Western so that didn't surprise me.
Well worth watching though!
I enjoyed it. It looks lovely. Fairly standard journey/meeting people on the way plot but that's what you want/expect from this kind of thing.
There was one really annoying visual pun near the end but it didn't spoil it.
that was one of the studenty elements I mentioned though. I think if I'd got the sense it was meant to be serious I'd have been annoyed, but I think it was supposed to be a silly joke...
It was just a bit too obvious, but I guess it's so obvious it has to be a joke.
