Critic Reviews for The Lost Son
Audience Reviews for The Lost Son
This is a taut well-told story with a very good cast. The story is dark-themed, fast moving, with more than a few twists, and a good deal of violence. Daniel Auteuil is excellent as a transplanted (to London) French detective who is very much in the mold of Sam Spade. His character is world weary, more than a little corrupt, tougher than he looks, and fearless in pursuit once he is committed to tracking down an evil-doer. The supporting cast also does a fine job, especially Ciaran Hinds as the old friend who involves the detective in the case. Highly recommended to all thriller or mystery fans.
I found it a hard film to get involved in, perhaps it?s slow pace contributed to that. The performances are rich and nicely developed, very good score. The story can be a little disturbing at times, but too often I was bored.
