The Harder They Fall

Lovecraft Country's Jonathan Majors stars alongside Oscar winner Regina King, Oscar nominee Lakeith Stanfield and Emmy nominees Idris Elba and Zazie Beetz in this action Western produced by Jay-Z and Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction).

When outlaw Nat Love (Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Elba) is being released from prison he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those riding with him include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Beetz), his right and left hand men—hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler)—and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (King) and Cherokee Bill (Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.

Both a dazzler and a muddle.

The Globe and Mail

An energetic and poppy crowd-pleaser of a film made even better by its punky indifference toward staid conventions of period filmmaking.

Historical correctives don’t often come in as sexy and stylish a form as (The Harder They Fall).

The result sometimes feels like a film made almost entirely of style and swagger... But there's satisfaction in that (too)..

(The) exciting ensemble cast is let down by a weak screenplay...
