Stars: Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly
Review: The cinematography takes center stage here and showcases the wonderful outdoor scenery of remote North America. Unfortunately, everything else is just the same soapy retreads of one-dimensional characters along with the same plot but in a different uniform and setting. Honorable family struggles against all odds to overcome its enemies and themselves.
The opening episode takes a ponderous, almost languid approach to introduce us to the characters and this is a plus. The epic production doesn’t need to be rushed. The devotion to location also makes this comfortable to watch.
Unfortunately, as rewarding as this production is to look at, it falls flat when you listen to it. Big corporations, corrupt government, noble Indians and honorable families… all made up of cookie-cutter characters trotting out an asinine and predictable screenplay.
It’s a soap opera set outdoors. If you liked Dallas and Dynasty then you’re going to thoroughly enjoy this romp through the same tired cliches that were done half a century ago. If you are looking for serious, captivating drama then you’re going to be disappointed.
So, if you accept it for what it is (a shallow, comic book collection of melodramatic silliness set in the great outdoors) it’s great. If you were hoping for more than that, then it’ll be a bit annoying.
