In this dead horse of a Western, Hannibal’s Mads Mikkelsen stars as a Danish settler on the 1870s American frontier who slays the man who savaged his wife and son. Now he must face the scoundrel’s brother (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a rote lawman-sadist whom Unforgiven’s Gene Hackman or Deadwood’s Ian McShane would hurl through the nearest barn door without spilling their tin cups of coffee. The movie is boringly violent and glum, but as a mute widow with a killer glare, the inimitable Eva Green provides its one shard of campy color. With this and her fireball work in last year’s lousy 300 and Sin City sequels, Green is officially the world’s best actress in bad movies. C
