By ROBERT NOTT I Never mind the Pollocks Robert Nott I The New Mexican Appaloosa, gals-and-gunfire oater, rated R, Regal Stadium 14, 424-6296, 3 chiles Appaloosa, shot in New Mexico and based on Robert B. Parker's novel of the same name, opens with hoofbeats.
By MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot IT'S NOT a great Western, but "Appaloosa" is the only Western in town. It's also one of the rarest of modern movies: a "routine" Western.
By Michael Machosky No genre of film is as bound and defined by tradition as the Western. Of course, most of the best Westerns since the '70s have gleefully taken a stick of dynamite to the accumulated Western cliches-- from "The Wild Bunch" (1969) to HBO's "Deadwood" (2004- 06).
By John Beifuss "Appaloosa" might be described as a routine Western, except that in the filmgoing culture of 2008, there's nothing routine about the pleasures of a well-made and entertaining movie about gunfighters, an evil rancher, a piano-playing saloon girl and hostile Apaches in the Old West.
By Jeff Vice Deseret News APPALOOSA -- *** -- Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris, Renee Zellweger; rated R (violence, profanity, vulgarity, brief gore, brief nudity, slurs) It helps to have a good sense of humor. In fact, having one has saved many movies.

By nigel powlson Westerns don't come along very often any more but when someone is brave enough to sit tall in the saddle, it's invariably worth the wait.
By Glenn Whipp Film Critic Modestly made and leisurely paced (almost to a fault), Ed Harris' "Appaloosa" is as much a buddy picture as it is tumbling- tumbleweeds Western, though Harris is quick to tip his cowboy hat to predecessors like Howard Hawks' "Rio Bravo." Harris and his "History of Violence" co-star Viggo Mortensen play longtime partnered hired guns who have traveled through the Old West for a dozen years keeping the peace and developing an easy rapport.
