A disappointment considering the awesome cast and initial conceit of adding a horror element to the classic western setting. We spend a vast majority of this slow paced endeavor listening to some average dialogue from dense characters at odds with each other, as they forcibly band together in a long trek. The ending finally introduces these weird unexplained killer cannibals and it becomes a dumb gore-fest. The actors and the gore were entertaining enough, but the whole movie was pretty underwhelming.

S. Craig Zahlers Debüt ist ein Genre-Zwitter, der als überraschend kräftiger Western von klassischer Machart beginnt und irgendwann den Sprung zum Horror wagt. Wir sehen eine Gruppe von Reisenden auf einer Mission (so wie wir es aus den grossen Vorbildern der 40er und 50er kennen) - und ich wundere mich, weshalb Bone Tomahawk trotz der Besetzung mit Kurt Russell nie den Sprung ins Kino schaffte? Wie in so vielen Western hängt in Bone Tomahawk alles von einer schwerwiegenden Entscheidung ab: Die erste dieser Art muss im Saloon getroffen werden, nachdem Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Russell) einen Wanderer namens Buddy (David Arquette) anschiesst. Buddy wirkt verdächtig. Soll man ihn einfach verscharren oder Hilfe holen? Es wird entschieden, die Ärztin Samantha O’Dwyer (Lili Simmons) zu rufen. In …

It cannot be denied that Bone Tomahawk is a unique type of western. It's more focused on dialogue and atmosphere than action which will likely put off a lot of people that otherwise enjoy westerns, especially due to the film's very slow pace. This story could have easily been filmed under two hours but instead it's about 90 minutes into the plot we actually get a good look at the villainous troglodytes our heroes are after. Yes there's trogs in this movie.
But the movie looks like it's actually taking place in the old west instead of a Hollywood backlot. And if there is one thing that saves this movie is the acting and how the characters work off one another. The dialogue is surprisingly humorous and droll most of the time. Kurt Russell is as reliable of a leading man as ever. Patrick …

I went into Bone Tomahawk hoping for a fun genre bending Western/Horror hybrid. Unfortunately what we get is a muddled non-thrilling mess of a movie. I'm a huge fan of the Western and Horror Genres. They have not often meshed in the past and this is no different. It has the feel of the much better Ron Howard film THE MISSING but doesn't deliver the emotional and mystical punch that the earlier film did. Kurt Russell is fine doing "Kurt Russell" and Patrick Wilson does the best he can with what little he has. RIchard Jenkins delivers most of the comic relief and moral compass of the film and is the only actor who is memorable. Matthew Fox is horribly miscast. The direction seems amateurish and writing seems to go no where. Some dialogue seems to be unintentionally funny. Some …
