I don't know why I didn't like this film the first time I saw it. Maybe I was distracted, maybe I left the room or people were talking or something but I'm glad I gave it another shot. Another two shots as a matter of fact. It's a funny film, it's a scary film, it's a western, it's a noir...It's a Coen brothers film. There's no explanation and no resolution and it is just the way it should be.

I want to say without any shred of distrust that 'No Country for Old Men' is the Coens' undisputed masterpiece, but that honor still remains with 'Fargo'. But 'No Country for Old Men' is still a masterpiece and a flawless film in every sense of the world. The cold-blooded sociopath Anton, played masterfully by Javier Bardem, changes this film into a breed far more sophisticated than your average crime/thriller, this is a developed study of the evolution of the criminal mind and all of it's terrifying nuances, proving that what we don't know is far more critical to a character than what we do know, all we know about Anton is that he kills people, and that he is very, Very, VERY good at it, and that is all it takes to make him the most interesting movie villain of the past half century.

The cool and calculated killer that is Anton Chigurh drives this carefully paced suspenseful thriller about a man out hunting who finds a bag filled with stacks of money amounting to over two million. He then finds himself smack dab in the middle of a twisted web involving a shady businessman-cum-drug lord, the contracted men who work ruthlessly for him, cocaine-abusing Mexicans, south-of-the-border medicos and border officials, and small-town sheriffs all set in the motels, inns, and diners of tumbleweed Texan towns on the edge of the U.S.-Mexico border. Yes, it can be boiled down to a hunt for a big bag of cash, but no, it's not Fargo. There's no Minnesota Nice in this Coen brothers flick. Enthralling but intentionally ambigious, you'll piece together this tale slowly in awe, and once the puzzle is complete, it won't leave you for a long while. For those who can be captivated by atmospheric stories that don't offer all the answers right away on a silver platter, I highly recommend this Academy Award-winning picture. The events will percolate in your mind. You can bet your life on it.

I love this movie. It just happened to be on T.V when I first saw it and I fell in love with it. Good action and good acting.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

One of the first things i would like to talk about is the bad guy. There have been many movies which have produced great, good, and ok bad guys. This movie has one scary a - s bad guy that sticks to your mind after you watch this movie. You'll love him on your HOMETHEATER!!! And the story and cast are both top notch. I enjoyed watching this movie and have it in my collection. I'm giving this classic movie 5 stars!!!!!! Very good story, very good cast, and an excellent bad guy. Toasted whole wheat bread with many slices of turkey, ham, roast pork, cheese, lettuce, mayo, olives on top, and a glass of cool water.

This was a really riviting movie. I even liked the end. The constant drive to kill by Anton was incredible.

Good story,but too many graphic scenes,the ending was a bit strange.
I guess you have to be an old Texas ranger to understand what he meant.

Very good from the very beginning! Enjoyed it very much UNTIL the ending. It makes sense in a very good way but it just was not right and ruined the entire movie.

Violence: Most of the violence stems from a sociopath, utterly without emotion or concern. Likely to give young teens nightmares.
