A hunter (Josh Brolin) near the Rio Grande accidentally stumbles across the bloody, corpse-strewn scene of a drug deal gone bad. He makes off with the $2 million dollars in a briefcase that's lying about but he's enough of a hunter to know he'll be pursued for it. What he doesn't figure on is that his chief pursuer will be human Terminator of a man named Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), whose preferred mode of killing is a cattle stun gun. Also in pursuit is weather-worn sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), an old school lawman with an almost philosophical appreciation for the moral weaknesses of fallen men.Joel and Ethan Coen's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's 2005 novel is a scorching blast of tense genre filmmaking shot through with rich veins of melancholy, down-home philosophy and dark, dark humour.
