Paul’s review of The Duel

The Duel was released on 24th June 2016 and stars Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson amongst others I have never heard of. In 1887, Texas Ranger David Kingston (Hemsworth) is sent to the isolated town of Mount Hermon to investigate a series of murders and disappearances of Mexican citizens. This includes Maria Calderon, the niece of a Mexican general who is threatening to go looking for her. In the town, Kingston finds that it is being run by preacher and mayor Abraham Brent (Harrelson) someone who he recognises from his childhood.

This is one of those movies that started off well, then dipped in the middle and became entertaining again towards the end. It was just a shame that the action was not on-going throughout as the storyline I found to be fairly original. That said Harrelson and Hemsworth played their parts well and the fighting scenes were well executed. The cinematography was good too. I was hoping to give this so much more, but it is an average 3 out of 5 from me. Worth watching but only if there is nothing better.

    I enjoyed this movie mainly due to Woody Harrelson’s acting. Granted, Mr. Hemsworth also did a good job. This is not your typical Western. The storyline was decent and I agree the middle was a bit slow, but that didn’t last long. The director also did a fine job. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
