Even Cate Blanchett can't save this misbegotten horse opera.

The rawest, scariest, most nerve-rattling saddlebags-and- sagebrush saga since Robert Mulligan's The Stalking Moon.

... a strange and haunting hybrid that's part Western, part supernatural thriller.

There's a pretty good Western hidden somewhere amid the extraneous scenes, unnecessary characters and adoring shots of the New Mexico wilderness, but Howard didn't have the heart to cut his movie.

a monotonous, dreary, wretched kitchen sink drama from post-Civil War New Mexico

Ron Howard's vividly gritty and brutally arresting Western is a powerfully effective piece of work.

A disappointment; relentlessly bleak and brutal.

"The Missing" is overly drawn out but benefits much from Jones's and Blanchett's absorbing performances.
