Bad Company Reviews

January 3, 2020
A pleasant enough film, but taken as a whole it has about as much cohesion as a Bob Hope monologue.

A highly engaging sleeper.

Bad Company is an excellent film which combines wry humor and gritty action with in-depth characterizations of two youths on the lam in the Civil War west.

The ironic comical Western prides itself in taking on the Horatio Alger myth.

[A] smart, character-driven Western that plays a little like the undercover cop genre.

Benton's first film, a Western good enough to make everything he has done since seem disappointing by comparison.

A naturalistic, irreverent and sometimes broadly comic view of a largely ignored aspect of the Civil War gives Bad Company a refreshingly good name.

The movie is built as a series of more-or-less self-contained episodes, and the episodes that work are worth the effort.

An easy watch, except for the annoying demeanour of its lead character.

Western addicts will find it refreshingly different from the norm, while its quirky comedy should attract non-fans of the genre.
