Movie Reviews

  • this lightness finally overshadows the story's elegiac potential and leaves the toll of Cassidy's exile largely untapped, and even Shepard's magnetism can't lift Blackthorn above the status of cinematic lark
    by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice ]
  • lovely to look at but less rewarding than it ought to be, the depth of the film never manages to live up to the breadth and magnificence of the landscape
    2.5 of 5 by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film ]
  • it's a film that ultimately has no guts
    1.5 of 4 by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine ]
  • it goes all mushy when contemplating its grizzled, out-of-time hero
    2 of 5 by Rachel Saltz [New York Times ]
  • does not profoundly reinvent the genre, but still provides a welcome if modest reminder of what oaters can offer
    by Ronnie Scheib [Variety ]
  • dialogue sometimes wavers and the plot doubles back on itself one too many times
    3 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • Blackthorn is less interested in narrative, or even action
    by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter ]
