News of the World | KT Western Review

You can’t go wrong with a Tom Hanks movie, and News of the World is another great one. Particularly for those who love westerns. It’s not the shoot’em-up kind, although it has it’s moments, and it’s not the cattle drive kind, it’s one of those one man in all the world’s story and those he encounters and the little girl he’s trying to save. He wasn’t ever gonna be an easy ride no matter how hard he avoided danger but with a little luck and a little help, things might be alright in the end.

News of the World

A Civil War veteran agrees to deliver a girl, taken by the Kiowa people years ago, to her aunt and uncle, against her will. They travel hundreds of miles and face grave dangers as they search for a place that either can call home.


Starring Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Toy Story 4), Helena Zengel (Baby Bitchka, System Crasher), Tom Astor (Mile 22, The Forgotten), Elizabeth Marvel (True Grit, Burn After Reading), Cash Lilley (Black Widow, Daybreak), and Ray McKinnon (Mayans M.C., Deadwood).

Review Conclusion

Will definitely be watching this again: A really enjoyable movie, full of action and drama, heartelt moments and questionable choices. Great characters and relationships. Loved the locations, felt for the difficulties and really wanted the best outcome for the pair no matter what their journey through at them.

4.5 stars
