Soft spoken and pragmatic, Tommy Lee Jones brings Sheriff Ed Tom Bell without a hitch despite being saddled with at times rather intricate and lofty dialogue. He brings poetry and a sense of soulfulness to in hands of other actors could have turned into pretentious misfires. Sure you could say this role fits snugly into the cannon of Jones, but he completely loses himself into the role so he solely exists as Bell without ever offering a glimpse there is an actor behind pulling the strings.
