Don't Let Go (Relive) Reviews

September 28, 2019
It's profoundly preposterous, often snortingly stupid, but also strangely enjoyable.
September 25, 2019
There's not much excitement here, and the whodunnit, when it comes, feels pretty irrelevant.
September 10, 2019
The time-traveling investigation is indeed optimistic, but in reality and execution, it's just magical thinking wrapped up in a fussy, overly convoluted plot.
August 30, 2019
"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.
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
Writer/director Jacob Estes has come to the project with a clever concept but his execution is weak, contradictory, and confusing.

Like Jack, we'd like to go back in time, that's for sure. Maybe we could return to about the 30-minute mark of this movie and see if there's a better path to take from there.

Don't Let Go is a slog.

[Estes] has a fine cast and a good sense of place, including a feel for the spookiness of emptied-out spaces, and he makes his conspicuously low budget work for the near-claustrophobic intimacy. More important, he has Oyelowo.
August 29, 2019
The film's better than you'd expect from a late-summer offering, mostly due to a strong cast led by the great Oyelowo.
August 28, 2019
When it comes to time-travel plots, it's more surprising and solidly thought through than 90% of sci-fi movies.
August 28, 2019
Emotionally, Don't Let Go works like magic. Intellectually, not so much.
August 28, 2019
The future -- or, in this case, the past -- might be unwritten, but Don't Let Go, like so many generic thrillers before it, operates by the book.
August 28, 2019
Oyelowo and Reid have excellent chemistry, as they learn blind faith in each other might be the only way they both survive.
January 31, 2019
A suspenseful hybrid of murder mystery and time travel.
January 29, 2019
Never touches on the contrast of a black cop with an ex-con brother, despite the cultural discussion and deeper exploration of the relationship of the two brothers that could have been provoked.
January 28, 2019
While Oyelowo and Reid are likable enough actors, they behave so frustratingly here... that audiences will want to grab the phones from their hands and commandeer the conversation.
