The only two "flaws" that I'm having difficulty reconciling:
1) Woody Harrelson is supposed to be a grisled vet in the bounty hunter business, but is easily found and taken by Chigurh. That was a letdown, and somewhat hard to believe.
2) How did the Mexicans continue to track Moss? I get how they found his wife and MIL, but how did they find him at the first Motel (the Regal I believe?)?
The sound was great in the movie. When Llewllyn walks up to the hotel door after awakening and realizing that the host was dead, he bends down and listens to the cold breeze coming under the door. A door has been opened in the hotel! Then the damn shadows. FaaaReeeaKAY.
1) A Lt. Col. killed by a sniper you say? Yeah, Chigurh has a different code. Wells is just a day trader.
2) If you'll remember when Chigurh goes to kill his boss in the skyscraper, he is pissed that the boss gave a second receiver
to the mexicans (Two parties were chasing the same transponder with two different receivers). Pick the right tool for the job, remember?
