Deadwood The Movie review: A perfect closure to an iconic TV series


But the events of the movie are really set in motion when Dayton Callie’s Charlie Utter is murdered. Against him are the two lead characters of the story — Sherrif Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and The Gem Saloon’s owner Al Swearengen (Ian McShane). And sure enough, the movie gives the perfect closure to the entire story and at no point feels extraneous. The residents of Deadwood are reuniting to celebrate the entry of South Dakota into the United States. Advertising

Trixie, now pregnant and guilt-ridden, erupts on George Hearst when his procession passes by. Towards the end of the TV series, Swearengen was responsible for saving the life of Paula Malcomson’s Trixie from Hearst by murdering some other prostitute from his establishment and presenting her body to pacify Hearst.

David Milch, who was in charge of each and every small part of the TV series, could not be that involved with the movie due to his failing health. Needless to say, Minahan has done a fabulous job. George Hearst, now a senator, returns too and serves as the villain of the movie. The movie is set in 1889. The pace, though sedate in the beginning, is scarcely slow and the movie, especially if you love these characters and this world, is never boring. A rewatch for those who have seen the series would be recommended as I found myself searching the plot summaries of the series to recall what had happened a couple of times. The best part about the movie, like the series, is the writing and acting. The Shakespearean, foul language (Al saying c***s***er for the first time in 13 years!) will be music to ears if you watched and loved the show. 0

Strictly speaking, it is not necessary for you to have watched the series in order to enjoy and appreciate the movie, but some of the stuff might flummox you and a few secondary characters may indeed seem underdeveloped. The raison d’être for the Deadwood: The Movie is that many felt the ending of the TV series felt incomplete. He did write the script, but left other responsibilities to Daniel Minahan. The huge cast of talented actors (led by an impeccable McShane) get a chance to shine due to a compelling story and dialogues.
