No Country is a pitch-perfect thriller that delivers the pleasurable fear and suspense expected of the genre even as it sends its conventions to the shredder.

Once you open Pandora's Box, there's simply no stopping the beasts that pour out.

What starts off as the best Charles Bronson movie not to star Charles Bronson ends up as a literary adaptation of a novel that thinks it means something or other.

No Country for Old Men is the brothers at their most polished, austere, and humorless.

When you see No Country for Old Men, leave your preconceptions at home. But bring your Alfred Hitchcock lenses. They're useful. No Country for Old Men is a dazzling time-bomb of a movie. It is an engrossing, brutal, nerve-wracking moral tale

For a film that traffics in implacable malice, this movie remains remarkably grounded in the everyday.

Ultimately, No Country For Old Men is a very strong film that's just a couple of bad decisions away from being a masterpiece.

This is some of Brolin's best work to date, though the film still belongs to Bardem and Jones, whose low-key mannerisms are well-suited to the Coens' sensibilities.

McCarthy's ferocious tale gives the Coens room to unleash their cinematic gifts, but keeps them from wandering too far afield and losing themselves in the marshes of technical prowess or easy irony.

Although 'No Country for Old Men' is an exciting film, wise screen violence needs more emotional depth below surface technique.

The Coen Brothers explore the demise of the Western with their late-80s-set drama about a simple man running from a amoral assassin.

Why, Joel and Ethan, why did you have to ruin an almost flawless film with a terrible last scene?

I was a little worried when I went to see "No Country for Old Men" because many people have been labeling it a masterpiece, but for once all the hype is warranted.

No Country for Old Men is the kind of film that will only cement the opinion you already have about its uniquely eccentric makers. Approach the ticket booth accordingly.

Retains the Coen brothers' trademark quirkiness, and it certainly goes all out. But it's also subtle in ways we haven't seen before.

The most fascinating element of the film is its formal linking of its multiple, no-nonsense protagonists. [Blu-Ray review]
