The only problem I have with this movie is that even though I am excited for the movie to be set in 1920's Montana but they filmed the whole movie in New Zealand. With that information, I will be watching the movie and just be criticizing who the movie's landscape looks nothing like Montana but that's just me. They could have easily filmed this movie in Southwest Montana or Eastern Montana, there is plenty of areas that would have been perfect to film this movie.
Will I still watch this movie? Of course! This movie has a lot of potential going for it. Plus, who wouldn't want to see Benedict Cumberbatch as a crazed ranch owner in Montana? That sounds like a fun watch, especially on Netflix.
