A story that could have made for a brisk jeremiad on 60 Minutes is stretched to 122 minutes of heroes fuming and villains purring their oleaginous apologies. Spacek and Lemmon, an appealing sweet-and-sour combo, sink in the swamp of good intentions.

Lemmon is superior as a man facing up to issues he never wanted to confront personally.

Spacek and Lemmon are fine as the missing man's wife and father, but what makes the film so overwhelming in places is its unending night-time imagery of a society coming apart at the seams.

This movie might have really been powerful, if it could have gotten out of its own way.

Among other things Missing does is to convince you that, next time, you're not going to waste your vote. The passive citizen is the citizen-victim.
