Critic Reviews for Dark Blood

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • Dark Blood quickly announces itself as pure folly -- a movie that, had it made it to theaters two decades ago, would be long forgotten by now, save for the occasional late-night airing in the basic-cable badlands.

  • Left unfinished when River Phoenix died of drug-related causes in the middle of shooting, this terrifically played and superbly photographed three-hander reveals to what extent the 23-year-old star was an intense and unpredictable talent.

    February 14, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Phoenix exerts a suitably charismatic and commanding air in his final role, making Boy a complex, fully mature character.

    October 22, 2012
  • Phoenix's performance is as fragmentary and uneven as the film itself but has an energy about it that reminds us of why he seemed such a distinctive screen presence before his untimely death.

    October 1, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's fascinating to watch the feature after all these years of rumors and leaked clips, finally able to grasp the last images of River Phoenix before his untimely death. For that alone, Dark Blood is worth a look.

Audience Reviews for Dark Blood

    Apparently the only reason anyone can find for watching this is the fact that it is River Phoenix' final film, since it's not only incomplete but mainly sterile and forgettable, unable to be tense or sexy as a provocative thriller and with some serious racist and sexist undertones.

    Fascinating! This movie is indeed one of a kind.
