At some point... the movie shifts into a series of phone calls and you realize that that's about all this script has to offer... a series of phone calls.

...audiences will have likely solved everything well before Jack (David Oyelowo) determines what's actually happening.

While it's not perfect, especially when it lapses into standard thriller mode, writer-director Jacob Aaron Estes' film is satisfyingly twisty, with a pair of terrific lead performances that keep us believing when the screenplay can't.

Great hook, messy resolution.

A bland time full of unexplored potential.

Once answers regarding the mystery begin to arise, the film devolves into a cliché-filled final stretch, complete with lengthy Bond-villain exposition.

As its mildly compelling tale of murder and time travel unspools, a handful of logical inconsistencies make it difficult to put the pieces together - although it's unlikely you'll care enough anyway.

I'll give Estes and his players a certain amount of credit for coming up with a mostly original storyline and executing it with a great deal of skill and clarity.
August 30, 2019
What starts as an intriguing conceit played out by compelling actors is ultimately undermined by a muddled conspiracy.

...it might have been a successful mind-bender had it cleaned up its own logic.

Violent thriller has great performances, lackluster plot.

"Don't Let Go" was reportedly significantly recut since premiering at Sundance earlier this year, but the edits can't save a project that was doomed from the start. Someone's crystal ball is cloudy.

Jacob Estes doesn't write himself into a corner, he writes himself into another dimension, one where logic is apparently nonexistent

People of color in a psychological, time traveling thriller starring David Oyelowo and Storm Reid. Yup! I was there for all of this and that twisted direction and screenplay by Jacob Estes. Edge of the seat drama from start to finish!
August 30, 2019
The central relationship drives the film forward, but in its focus on 'whodunit and why,' Don't Let Go fails to pack the punch it should.
August 30, 2019
Would that Jacob Estes had kept the particulars of his murder mystery as intricate as the sci-fi of his main characters' communion.

While there's not much new here and with the caveat that I'm a sucker for time travel type movies, I found myself engaged from start to finish. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)

Its cop-movie cliches and shock effects keep dragging it back into standard time.
August 30, 2019
A crime thriller with a bit of supernatural blood running through its veins, Don't Let Go quickly becomes a muddle of a movie.
August 30, 2019
The film somehow works. Maybe it's the forcefulness of the performances, or that the characters are just as confused as we are.
