TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Cut Bank contains typically outstanding work from its solid veteran cast, but it's lost in a dull morass of predictably derivative crime thriller clichés.

Movie Info

Dwayne McLaren (Liam Hemsworth) dreams about escaping small town life in Cut Bank, Montana, "the coldest spot in the nation," with his vivacious girlfriend Cassandra (Teresa Palmer). When Dwayne witnesses an awful crime, he tries to leverage a bad situation into a scheme to get rich quickly but he finds that fate and an unruly accomplice are working against him. Thrust into the middle of a police investigation spearheaded by the local sheriff (John Malkovich), everything goes from bad to worse in this all-American thriller. Directed by Matt Shakman and also starring Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Oliver Platt. (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Cut Bank

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (12)

Quite apart from the equally apparent lack of the Coens's extraordinary visual acuity, Cut Bank comes up short because it simply presumes that guilt and evil already live in town, just waiting for us to arrive and see the show.

Deficient in charisma, Hemsworth lacks both the grit and grin that his complicated role demands.

In this sort of film, plenty of characters hope to get out of their small-time town, while viewers hope to get out of the theater.

Like many of its brethren, the movie seems to love itself while hating its characters.

While there's some undeniably inherent joy in just seeing some of these great actors play off each other, the sum here is a shockingly dull affair, almost made more disappointing by the talent it wastes.

Shakman is clearly going for a dark and bloody Fargo-style crime thriller, but the biggest crime in the film is just how derivative it all feels.
