A Million Ways To Die In The West (15)

Reviewed By Kate Maitland-Gleed

Star Rating: 4 Stars

After the roaring success of Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Ted’ in 2012, I was overly excited to see the new comedy ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’! After an extremely stressful day, I was really thankful to sit down in the comfy chairs in the Plaza along with some tasty nuts! And they were only my friends!! (Sorry, revision has gotten to my head slightly)! Anyway, with extreme comfort, something to nibble on and surrounded by mates, I was ready to endeavour on a trip back to the wild west… With a whole bucket load of comedy mixed it!

After an unnecessary long introduction of desolate western landscape, and mind boggling country and western music, I was ready for some actual dialogue to occur! Finally it did, and it was well worth the wait!! Puns and side-splitting jokes were thrown at us from the start! And it was really nice to see loads of cameo roles from a variety of famous faces; for example, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Lloyd, Ryan Reynolds and Jamie Fox, and also small links between this Seth MacFarlane film, and ‘Ted’. Also, many past actors and actresses from MacFarlane films were also given main roles in this film; such as, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Silverman.

After losing the love of his life; Louise (played by Amanda Seyfried), Albert (played by MacFarlane), a humble sheep farmer, comes to the conclusion that there is nothing left for him in the deadly west and that he should leave for a safer part of the US. But after being persuaded against this judgement by his friends, Edward and Ruth (played by Giovanni Ribisi and Sarah Silverman), Albert’s luck begins to change when the smouldering hot, yet self efficient Anna (played by Charlize Theron) falls into his life. What brings these two outcasts together is the lack of gunman skills Albert has, and the extensive pistol tricks Anna can teach him. But as the plot thickens, the pattern in Albert’s stars change and only he, and him alone, can resolve these deadly problems!! (I bet after reading that tantalising taster of the plot, you can’t wait to watch the real film!!)

Myself and my friends really enjoyed this film, and have no doubt that we shall be watching it again! Although there are a few explicit references and scenes, and the majority of the language is some kind of swear word, this really is an enjoyable film to be intently watched by anyone and everyone who enjoy the work and MacFarlane and a massive dose of comedy! See you in the cinema!
