This was an enjoyable read but, it definitely went on far too long and was very predictable. This felt like a pretentious Western in a made for tv movie. While I do enjoy McCarthy’s writing style and love his eloquence, I didn’t care for the love interest. It probably didn’t help to know that the female role was cast in the movie as fluffy Penelope Cruz. I did like Lacey Rawlins and John Grady Cole’s characters and they had some very entertaining dialogue but, for me, the story went downhill a short while after they got to Mexico.
