The harder they fall is a classic western – but it isn’t. The main cast is Black, based on real black people who lived in the Old West. However, they never lived this story, which is all fiction. Now on Netflix, the film tells a story of gang rivalry, revenge and love.

The harder they fall uses all major western techniques. Wide panoramas against blue skies, gangsters stopping trains and robbing banks, gunfights in dusty streets, cities full of armed killers on one side or the other of a prolonged disagreement. On the other hand, the music is 100% modern.

Review: The harder they fall

The cast was excellent, but I was really there to see the female characters. Regina King as Trudy Smith was great. She was part of a group led by Rufus Buck (Idris Elba). That gang included Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield) and many others.

Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) led the rival gang of outlaws. Seeking revenge on Rufus Buck, they got his attention by stealing the money from a bank robbery intended for him.

You could say I went to the movies for Regina King, but I stayed for Zazie Beetz.

With Nat Love were Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and Jim Beckworth (RJ Cyler). Nat Love was supported by saloon owner Mary Fields (Zazie Beetz), who was also Nat’s love interest. Mary had a bouncer, a small, tough woman named Cuffee (Danielle Deadwyler), who was as tough as any man. Cuffee was also in love with Mary Fields. A US Marshall, Bass Reeves (Delroy Lindo), helped this gang.

In the middle between these two gangs was Sheriff Wiley Escoe (Deon Cole), who had no other side than his own. And dynamite. He had dynamite.

Regina King and Zazie Beetz in The Harder They Fall

There were many iconic moments and scenes, but my favorite part of the movie was the epic fight between Trudy Smith and Mary Fields. Best fight scene between two women I’ve seen in a long time. It was filmed in a room full of brightly colored canvases drying on lines and barrels of dye. It was brutal and beautiful.

You could say I went to the movies for Regina King, but I stayed for Zazie Beetz. It was nice to see beloved black actors in roles you don’t normally see them do. And they did it in Stetsons (and top hats and bowlers) on horseback.

There were moments of humor, call-outs and tributes to other films and African American Heroes, songs and interpretive dances.

The harder they fall lasted two hours and ten minutes. It felt very long. There were pauses that made it feel even slower. I would have appreciated a little honing, but if you’re making the first all-black western, you’ll want to do it for all it’s worth. Who knows when an opportunity like this will arise again?
