A hunter by the name of Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) captures the ultimate bounty when he stumbles upon
2 million in cash. Of course when 2million goes missing there will always be those in search of it.
A sociopathic hit man named Anton Chigurh is hired by a Texas businessman to take back the money and the lives of those who stand in his way. As Llewelyn Moss runs and shows himself as a bit more than helpless quarry, Chigurh plows through everything in his way to catch him.
This is a death match film that makes its mark with subtlety. The Hit man does not run around with a but rather uses anything and everything that could put an end to those who he pursues. The subtlety speaks loudly in scenes such as a low shot that only shows the hellish Chigurh from the knees down. All the audience sees is Jeans, cowboy boots, a small air compressed tank, and the silencer of a shotgun. It is definitely enough to know that trouble is walking in your direction. The writing is excellent as you will notice from the opening dialogue given by Tommy Lee Jones, and the acting is on the same level. Javier Bardem gives a performance that will find a nice little place to nest itself in your mind.
