Netflix Movie Review: The Harder They Fall


The new Netflix movie “The Harder They Fall”, may be the first ever Western film with every lead role filled by a black actor. This is an ongoing and very positive trend in the movie industry with the catalyst being the release of the outstanding “Black Panther” in early 2018.

This movie stars Jonathan Majors, Damon Wayans Jr., Regina King, Delroy Lindo and Edris Elba, and if any fan of a Western can stomach some of the extreme violence in this story, this is definitely an entertaining film. There is a good screenplay, some great action, cinematography and some solid acting. I thought that the conclusion/trick resolution ending well done and believable.

For the most part I agree with the high Rotten Tomatoes ratings of 87% and give this film a high recommendation.
