What is on screen is impressive, even with the sense of something missing.

Not a disaster as rumored to be, just a disappointing adaptation of a great novel. Thonrton fails to dramatize in visually or dramatically satisfying ways the hero's odyssey from innocence to experience, from childish game to acting with honor.

I'm a fan of all involved, but this is a really tough watch.

Looking Closer

The movie that resulted from the studio's demand for cuts ... is a big-screen Cliff's Notes for the novel.

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

Despite a script which remains faithful to the sparse language of the novel, and some breathtaking cinematography, the whole production feels too lethargic.

Part elegy, part romance, and part myth, it's a sweeping paean to the lost West, a dreamy chronicling of the end of an age.

Film Threat

The result of what would appear to be a great deal of effort and some horribly misguided conviction is an extremely slow-moving train wreck.

Entertainment Today

A soft, dusty, widescreen [old-school western]... an intelligent, sensitive drama with an epic scope, muted narrative and impressionistic heart.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Those horses are as attractive as promised, but the film's snail-like plot caused me to lose interest early on.

A film of infinite possibility that somehow got reduced to tangible mediocrity.

Unfolds carefully over an expansive canvas, with the same feel of involvement as a well-written epic novel.

a beautifully filmed modern Western that moves at a quick pace, but feels clunky and ill-formed

Although the visuals are consistently lovely to look at, the action is just as consistently unexciting.

Comfortable in the saddle, but sadly confused the rest of the time.

Damon is 30 and Cruz will soon be 27, and they look it. And there goes the drama.
