What Mike Wallis has done here is simply extraordinary. He has not only managed to evoke his own clear vision as a director by doing unexpected things (concerning the ending in particular), but he has also managed to embody the essence of the classic, rugged western film with "Good for Nothing." There is a level of satire and hilarity in the film that particularly appealed to me especially regarding the reason behind the anti-hero's quest in the first place. The cinematography alone was stunning. I found the movie to be comparable to the likes of "True Grit" and "Unforgiven" and "Blazing Saddles." The movie haunted me long after I'd watched it and I can't wait to see what Mike Wallis does next!

I fell in love with the scenery as well, I swear this film sent me whimsically dancing through a new side of NEw Zealand that I have never seen. This is far from Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings New Zealand, this director has made it his own. God Bless this film!
I totally agree with you both! The scenery was just absolutely gorgeous! i still can't get over that second line of the movie ( i'm sure you know what i'm talking about; "My _____'s broke") I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet because that line basically sets up the entire movie. I really wasn't expecting that line which makes it all the more exciting and the ending was something i did not see coming! Did any of you watch it at the Quad Cinema in NY?
Yeah I saw that movie, that third line made me split my side with laughter. I couldn't stop. I also connected with the satire of the film. Instead of glorifying the romantic west, it makes fun of it. This is a fun movie that is a satire. That scene with the maladroit cowboy's face-off was so great. People really need to see this film.
