TRADED REVIEWED

“Traded” is a traditional Western. Traditional in the sense that a snake bite kills our hero’s son and his daughter runs off to be a prostitute. Along the way are helpful bartenders, mean gunslingers and an incestuous stepfather. People are shot, lessons are learned. Some films are just that simple.

When I covered the film a few weeks ago, I thought I’d eventually have more to say. While I appreciate the strong cast and stunning direction, it feels like one of those big studios mid 60s Westerns. It feels like an end of an era production where a big change is coming. A lot of that ties into the time frame that the film is trying to peg down, but is there something else? Honestly…no. Sometimes everything is on the surface.
