It has the truncated, jumpy feel of a sprawling epic novel shoehorned into a space far too small for it to comfortably breathe.

People's personalities barely emerge from the shroud of mythology, reducing passion and conflict to set pieces with little emotional resonance.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Hopscotches from one condensed scene from the book to another, without ever sweeping one up in the journey or tapping into the mother lode of rich comedy that exists in McCarthy's brilliant dialogue.

Thornton and Tally aim for such fidelity to the material that they end up botching it.

Misses the mark as a classic drama about coming of age....what we see on the screen is curiously devoid of soul.

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

For a slow moving film, there was the contradiction of scenes happening too fast to be developed and fully realized.

Faced with a choice of blunt instruments with which to beat a good book into a bad movie, director Billy Bob Thornton chooses heavy, random, arty imagery and a leaden pace.

It's likely to leave all but the most ardent fans of Matt Damon and novelist Cormac McCarthy shaking their heads in puzzlement -- if they don't nod off first.

A boy's adventure story that has mistaken itself for an epic, and it rattles around in its own ambitions like a child's head in a 10-gallon hat.

Lovely but disengaging, mysterious but uninvolving, physical but strangely remote.

Looking Closer

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