The film’s title appears to be a reference to the 1956 film “The Harder They Fall”, which was based on the 1947 Budd Schulberg novel of the same name. The director hasn’t said, although it could have been influenced by the Reggae hero Jimmy Cliff in the 1972 Perry Henzell film The Harder They Come, as well as the hit song of the same name, which was also recorded by Cliff in 1972.
The drama revolves around an outlaw named Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) who is “saddling up with his crew to take down rival Rufus Buck, a brutal crime boss who just got freed from jail,” according to Netflix.
Over the last few days, critics’ reviews of the film have been pouring in. Leah Greenblatt Entertainment Weekly The result sometimes feels like a film made almost entirely of style and swagger, a body count with a killer soundtrack. But there’s satisfaction in that kind of bloody, bare-knuckled storytelling too… while the Roger Ebert described it as “a bloody pleasure: a revenge Western packed with memorable characters played by memorable actors, each scene and moment staged for voluptuous beauty and kinetic power.”
Be on the look out for more from Koffee as she prepares for the release of her 2022 album which is set to be released by RCA Records.
