Too many errors to be rated high although this was a very entertaining movie.

10/10.One of the best crime noir movies ever made.I would say it easily belongs in the top 20. Tommy Lee Jones gives his best performance ever here, with enthusiasm.Javier Bardem's Anton Chigurth is easily one of the best movie villains ever.He displays the casual way of going about and killing people.It leads to the question of whether or not he truly likes doing it or sees it merely as a job.The unforgiving countryside of Texas makes for a perfect atmospshere as Josh Brolin flees with ill gotten gains.The scene that stuck out the most for me was him speaking with a gas station owner.The way he flips the coin while saying"Everything.You stand to win everything.You been putting it up your whole life, you just didn't know it."I found that chilling.If you like crime noir movies then you'll enjoy No Country For Old Men which shows the evolving ways of the criminal mind.

Character mistake: When Moss is arguing with the border guard at the Eagle Pass international bridge, he claims that he is a veteran of the "12th Infantry Battalion." There has never been such a thing as the 12th Infantry Battalion in either the Army or the Marines. Rather, they are based on a structure of 3-4 battalions per numbered regiment (i.e., 1st Battalion, 3rd Infantry Regiment/2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, etc). The film takes this seriously, as the guard, a veteran himself, buys Moss' story.

Suggested correction: He might have meant 12th Infantry Regiment. From Wikipedia: "Three 12th Infantry battalions deployed to South Vietnam with the 4th Division from August through October 1966."

If he said "battalion" but meant "regiment", then it's still a valid mistake for saying it wrong and being believed.

Regiments have not existed as functional units in the US Army since shortly after Korea; they are simply historic names associated with various battalions. Marine battalions are not numbered higher than 4 in any regiment, and in any case do not carry an explicit designation of "infantry."

Question: The border guard who questions Llewelyn when he returns from Mexico seems a lot like M. Emmet Walsh. Since he was the lead character in the Coen brothers debut, "Blood Simple", it is likely that he's making a cameo for them. Is it him?

Answer: No. Brandon Smith is credited with playing the part.
