Critics Consensus

Diablo has neither the intelligence nor the originality to compete with the revisionist latter-day Westerns it owes obvious debts to.

  • The kind of movie your stepdad would mention having seen on Netflix a few days back but have trouble remembering the name of. (He'd probably think it was pretty good, though.)

  • "Diablo" boasts the skeleton of an interesting allegorical oater ... but Carlos de los Rios' screenplay never manages to provide flesh or a beating heart, leaving the whole endeavor feeling more like a rough draft.

  • A relatively ordinary oater ...

  • An early candidate for the 2016 worst movies list.

  • Roeck aims for an homage to Eastwood Sr.'s revisionist Westerns (think The Outlaw Josey Wales, Unforgiven, etc.), but the result is pretentious and pointless.

  • Like any western, the film also has a spurious relationship with race, trying to prop its tale up on the dramatic implications of antebellum America, without having to actually explore the relationships between the war's disparate survivors.

Audience Reviews for Diablo

  • Sep 11, 2016
    Who would've thought that out of the two Westerns I watched this week, the one starring Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton would be the worse movie. Diablo is far from perfect, and it slumps pretty heavily in the middle. But the opening scene and entire third act had me totally engrossed. The supporting cast of Diablo are all pretty on point. Particularly Walton Goggins. Even Danny Glover who is notorious for phoning it in these days does a good job. Unfortunately, Scott Eastwood in the lead role is abysmal. So poor in fact that it was all that held me back from giving Diablo a "Fresh" rating.
