I am a huge fan of the Western genre. So between me and the filmmakers behind the Western Sweetwater, that makes one of us. Writer-directors Logan Miller and Noah Miller are far more interested in half-constructed ideas based solely on what seems cool. The film rolls along without any urgency even though the audience can tell the story from start to finish, and probably tell it better. The filmmakers somehow managed to rope in great actors like Ed Harris and Jason Isaacs to play campy stock characters, but never had any idea how to fully take advantage of their talent. Cinematographer Brad Shield even gives the movie the look of respectability. Despite some pretty shots and entertaining performances, Sweetwater always feels lackadaisical and half-hearted.
