  1. 60
    An acid-dipped valentine to the sometimes seedy magic of movies.
  2. 63
    Has funny moments, but it also has a lot of drag time.
  3. 50
    Entirely too well-behaved.
  4. 50
    An uneven but exuberantly anarchic comedy homage to the spaghetti Western.

    Take away the violence, ribald humor and salty language, and 800 Bullets is actually a touching tale about family, love and honor.

    Though the high-noon climax drags somewhat, Álex de la Iglesia's charming comedy celebrates the resilient power of dreams, memories, and the movies.
