If you just want to sit back and experience an old school western, complete with excellent performances, superb cinematography, and brutal “Cowboys & Indians” conflicts, The English will serve you well. That said, while everything comes together well enough in the end for you to get the gist, the journey of the story while you’re in it is borderline incoherent. It doesn’t ruin the show necessarily, but a lot of details get glossed over, enough to make you ponder “wait…what’s happening?” more than once. It's worth your time, but just know it works better as a vibe than a narrative, if that makes sense.
