Ravenous (1999) – review

DVD – italian audio track

Long story short: in the mid 19th century, a fresh promoted Captain is sent to an outpost in the middle of nowhere.

I like this movie very much; I bought it more than 10 years ago, and I paid used more than new, because it was near impossible to find; but it was money well spent!

Guy Pearce and Robert Carlyle are really great actors – it’s a pity the former is very underestimated; as the other actors, everyone contributed to the final result, along with good locations and gorgeous, hypnotic music.

The story is well done, and never boring; some twists here and there helps to mantain the attention and interest high, and let the viewer to guess what will going on next.

Highly reccomended to everyone who loves historical movies set in the old West and to supernatural aficionados as well.

My vote: 7.5/10
