A masterpiece

Hilarious, brutal, sad and, dark. Some graphic violence so best for mature 12 or 13. Thought provoking messages though.

Great Film

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a great film with six episodes in a two hour time space. It was made by the Coen Brothers. The only problem in this film is violence but if you can handle violence in movies or just remember it's fake blood it's all ok.It should be fine for a twelve or thirteen year old.

Terrible. Simply awful.

Do not bother watching this repetitive, boring, unnecessarily gruesome disgrace of a movie. It is well acted, but the whole story is without a plot, theme or even a main character, the trailer was really good and portrayed this film as being funny and an adventure, but it was not in any way amusing and had no adventure.

This movie is pretty good. However, I started to lose interest after the film’s fourth short film.

Very different and original

Very good, Coen Brothers quality. Starts out very funny and progressively gets darker. Pretty violent but not consistent, and not overly-graphic, as in a Tarantino film. Language is minimal. Some stories are better than others, but overall very good. Occasionally confusing.
