Director: Ethan & Joel Coen
Starring: Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones
When an ordinary Texas Joe (Brolin) happens upon a drug deal gone bad, he takes off with the $2.4 million in cash. In pursuit are a psychotic hitman (Bardem) trying to murk him and a grizzled sheriff (Jones) trying to protect him. Cormac McCarthy's novel is equally dope and nerve-wracking, but who actually reads books in 2009?
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
To off his victims, Bardem's character uses a captive bolt pistol usually used to stun cattle before they're slaughtered. Holy cow!
