Ultimately, Concrete Cowboy has great intentions and has all the bones of something special, but doesn't live up to what it could have been.

The film captures a fascinating urban subculture threatened with extinction -- and Elba's fans will follow the Golden-Globe-winning Luther star anywhere, including horseback.

Concrete Cowboy felt like a fresh new story I hadn't seen in recent years. There's an added layer of authenticity with real members of the Fletcher Street Riders as part of the main cast .

The basic plot of Concrete Cowboy offers little in the way of surprises. It's very familiar territory. The presentational style, though, is fresh and gritty and hugely effective.

McLaughlin's transformative turn is all the more impressive when you consider the top-notch acting talent that he goes toe to toe with.

The strength of the acting - combined with the warmth given to this community and those that populate it - elevate the material above its recognizable premise.

There's an urgency to this tale, the vibrant nature of its telling making it vital, necessary viewing thanks in large part to the exceptional work of its cast, the authenticity of its setting and the passion through which it is told.

The film never reaches its full potential despite solid performances and a moving story.

A look at the unique situation of actual cowboys living in urban Philadelphia. BUT there is too little of Idris Elba in it.

Concrete Cowboy is an interesting movie - part father-son drama, part urban western, part coming-of-age tale, all with a healthy helping of damn the man...heartfelt and well-crafted...So saddle up, friends - this one is worth the ride.

Some incredible cinematography, but it's incredibly sleepy all the way through.

It's worth watching because the setting is so interesting and the performances so strong, but it's a little uneven.

Concrete Cowboy takes a fascinating real-world premise and churns it through Reed Hastings' inoffensive content algorithm. The resulting movie is doomed to be another forgotten title in the streaming landfill.

As cinema "Concrete Cowboy" becomes a work of magnificent images.

I recommend that people see this film and revisit the classics that came before to add to their perspective.

In the end Concrete Cowboy isn't simply a father/son reunion tale. It's something more, an ode to a specific way of life with universal messages of the value of community.

Elba's dramatic heft and legitimate star power certainly do have their moments, especially during some potent father-son exchanges.
April 3, 2021
Timeless themes and powerhouse performances fuel Concrete Cowboy to be the dramatic contemporary Western that it is.
April 3, 2021
Your classic story about an irritable young man redeemed by an animal, and the embrace of a community. But it's satisfying even so, largely because watching Elba is such a pleasure.

Concrete Cowboy is gorgeously photographed, with many of the riding scenes taking place in the magic sunset hour or under the lights of the city and in the rain...
