The Coen brothers are back delivering one of their best films yet, with their adaptation of No Country for Old Men.

This suspenseful drama begins from the first scene, and only continues to build as a slow chase across SW Texas in a riveting journey into Hell for anyone unfortunate enough to cross the path with this psychopath hit man.

Believe me, this is one creepy dude.

You will find it bloody, shocking, and bracingly funny in parts -- a mesmerizing experience.

I like the way the Coen brothers use black humor -- this has made their own trademark in film making.

Nothing says cold-blooded murder like the Coen brothers, and noone can tell a story quite like them either.

This riveting tale of murder, greed, and its consequences is told through characters following a drug deal gone bad -- a slice of life on the run as a man is pursued relentlessly by a psychopathic hit man.

The ending may not delight all, but I thought this movie was a scissors up.

Film makers Joel & Ethan Coen think deeply on Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men, a bestselling 2005 throat-gripping dark novel that is quietly terrifying.

The story revolves around an average guy who is out doing some unsuccessful hunting when he happens upon a huge cash haul at a scrubby site of a drug deal gone deadly bad.

He thinks he can take the money and run, but a psychopathic hit man assigned to tracking the whereabouts of the loot has other evil ideas
