The Duel (2016)

Kieran Darcy-Smith directs Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth and Alice Braga in this western where a Texas Ranger travels to the compound of a holy man who killed his Daddy years ago, investigating a potential massacre of Mexicans.

Lurches between boring and deviant – Harrelson chews up a poorly written role. There’s a decent mystery plot, not adequately focused on, and some bloody confrontations hit the right nerve in the final act. Whether you make it through that lacklustre slog at the start to get to the good stuff though is your own decision.
