Thrilling, fast-paced, you always want to see what happens next.

The bones of a great Western remain barely visible under the layer of mush Howard and screenwriter Ken Kaufman smooth over them, reminders of the viciously memorable film that might have been.

Scenic with a couple of well shot scenes. Tommy Lee Jones growls his way through the script and Cate Blanchett is a hard ass Dr. Quinn medicine woman. Together they go on a quite engrossing rescue mission.

A pretty good addition to the modern day western, mainly thanks to Ron Howard's direction and Cate Blanchett's performance. I'm not a huge Howard fan (apart from Happy Days) but I'm liking his more recent films. Tommy Lee Jones was good too but he really is a one trick Pony of late, maybe he should try something else for a change because he's becoming a parody of himself. Overall, a pretty good film.

Blanchett is great in this film. But what a creepy movie........

Two actors I like a lot have been wasting their time on a movie with a ridiculous plot. The downtrodden menu consists of 'bad' Native Americans Indians and 'good' Christian settlers.

captivating characters, decent enough story line and it was believable enough where I didn't want to throat punch myself.

It's well worth the watch (if you can stomach movies without stuff blowing up every 6 seconds, or actual dialogue without cursing every 5th word.

Well acted but a lighter directing touch would have helped this action western.

A good movie if you like your westerns without a lot of fluff. Maggie's older daughter is kidnapped by a creepy native psychopath, and it is up to Maggie and her father (who she detests) to save her. As well as dealing with the kidnappers, the relationship between Maggie and her dad must be settled. There is a lot going on in this movie.

This is a western about child/women slavery. This kind of thing happened. Though rescues, probably, not so much. Why the bad reviews? No one interested in women's issues? One of my favorites.

The Missing is undoubtably Ron Howard's absolute worst film. Never have I seen a film so uninteresting or boring in my life. It makes no sense whatsoever and should not be viewed by anyone ever.

classic western

haven't seen many so I may not be as knowledgable as most critics. I've seen stagecoach, the sergio Leone no name trilogy and the new 3:10 to yuma. I love all my westerns and this one's right there with them. a little brutal but has a heart to it as well.

What a load of RUBBISH.

Never thought I would see Tommy Lee Jones play an Indian but alas The Missing went ahead and did just that. Though The Missing never really becomes a classic western it does have some intense scenes but just never seemed to pull it all together to reach its potential.
