Synopsis

Tommy Lee Jones directs himself in a languid modern-day western with a title that's unlikely to have anyone racing to the multiplex. It tells the story of Pete, a Texan cowboy who's determined to see his dead buddy Melquiades laid to rest in Mexican soil. Pete also figures that the border patrolman who shot the poor guy should help him do it. This is an episodically entertaining ride though some will be saddle-sore by the time the last rites are read.
