Uma boa fotografia e atuações competentes (especialmente da pequena Boyd) não são o bastante para que ignoremos o roteiro longo e sem foco que, além de investir em um deslocado tom sobrenatural, ainda conta um desfecho fraquíssimo.

Basically, The Missing is Ron Howard's John Ford impersonation, and the end result is as strangely schizophrenic as it sounds.

Howard hasn't the conviction to make a truly tough-minded thriller. Instead, he indulges in every genre shortcut imaginable, resulting in a film that feels creakingly old the first time through.

Had lesser actors been cast in the two lead roles, The Missing could have been no better than an average episode of Bonanza.

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

Mr. Howard keeps the emotional temperature of the family reunion as chilly as possible, but it's clear that the father-daughter relationship is the core of the drama, and the rest is all time-consuming digressions.
