News of the World ★★★★

News of the World doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it is a satisfying watch for those who like old school westerns. Tom Hanks is, as always, an engaging lead, and Helena Zengel plays off of him perfectly. Their relationship feels incredibly natural, and develops at a great pace.

The film is perhaps lacking in inspiration, there's nothing here that hasn't been done before, but it's an entertaining watch, especially for fans of the western genre.
