When the Deadwood the HBO tv series was abruptly cancelled after Season 3,it left many fans of the show hanging about what happened to the various characters of the show. Now the follow up movie after many years finally arrives and it does a fairly good job in picking up the story after such a long hiatus. There was a criticism that the Irishman was too long at 3.5 hours running time but I feel here that 1 hour and 45 mins. was just too short to do justice to all the characters and plot threads of the series. Sometimes the movie felt a bit rushed or abbreviated so I wished they had gone with a 3 hour length. Overall it was a well written and well acted revisit to a great television show. Probably will only appeal to people who have seen the series and will be a bit bewildering if watching it as a newcomer.

Wolfe was right, you can't go home again. Deadwood is one of my all time favourite series, so likely my hopes were simply not going to be met. The amount of actual plot movement could have been done in a simple episode. It's really too bad; I think they just waited too long.

All loose ends are now officially tied up. This movie started pretty slow but got a sort good pace going just as it was ending. Don't even try this movie if you didn't see the series. But then again anything Timothy Olyphant is in is worth watching. He is the US Marshall here. Does it seem funny to anyone that he just picks up the US Marshall badge in "Justified" like a reincarnation of the same character?

If you haven't seen the series, don't bother with this movie. Just reserve season one of Deadwood and see how you like it. If you aren't hooked by the first episode, this is not for you. If you have an issue with swearing in a series, this is not for you. If you abhor violence or evil behavior in a series, this is not for you.
This movie provided the perfect coda for the awesome three season series which ended on a somewhat ambiguous note. I forgot how much I liked the curious dialog, the wonderful characterizations, and the overall tone of this series.

This should have been the concluding episode of this series.
At times the profanity, almost sounds Shakespearean. If you enjoyed the series you will enjoy the film.

Not just profane--there is at least on swear word in each sentence. The dialogue is ridiculous--inflated diction, convoluted structure and completely improbable. I lasted 20 minutes and gave up.

I watched the Deadwood series a few years ago but just could not get into this one and shut it off during the first 10 minuets. We did not like at all.

COME ON YOU [expletive], HAS IT REALLY BEEN 13 YEARS? COME BACK TO YOUR OLD HOME AND... I can't go further with the "High School Reunion" routine; this was little more than tying off hanging threads from a series most people have imagined already and moved
on... like the team captain who still has his letter jacket in the hall closet for those brisk days when he needs a little more warmth, but not buttoned up; since the years and the beers have thrown that out.
Proves they were right to end when they did; like HELL ON WHEELS went south in the last season as it was meant to. That time is over, the Future is now.
If you enjoyed the series, the finale should put to rest all your hopes for those characters lives soundly. The lack of spurs was something I noticed in a town full of horses, guess no one was in any hurry to go anywhere.

Like a heartfelt reunion with your dearest lost loved ones, this is a satisfying long-awaited resolution to the series that ties up threads that were suddenly left hanging 13 years ago. It's both beautiful and brutal, concluding with a bittersweet finale lantern-lit to a caramel glow, like a snow globe scene of a bygone era come to life.

The writer and creator has hidden in Deadwood a Shakespearean tale of human passions and fates set in the outlaw wild west. You may want to use subtitles to follow the remarkable dialogue.

Pages of quotes laced with profanity have been posted in IMDb already. Enjoy if you are willing to tolerate and not distracted by the coarse language:
