Appaloosa : *** 1/2 ( 3 1/2 Stars)

Starring Viggo Mortensen and Ed Harris (who also directed) as Old West lawmen intent on cleaning up a frontier town, Appaloosa is an actor's duet scored for shotguns and six-shooters. It has been delighting Western fans and cowboy-picture neophytes for weeks, but it appears to be heading for its last theatrical roundup. Catch it while you can on the big screen, where you can really savor its Southwestern vistas.
