Critic Reviews for Going Home

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (2)

  • Going Home is a fairly awful melodrama that's worth seeing primarily for the presence of Robert Mitchum. Not that he's especially good... It's just that he's there, the kind of screen presence that draws your attention.

    October 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Old sleepy-eyed Robert Mitchum and Brenda Vaccaro with that edge-of-toughness voice of hers are capable of making something out of nothing. But even with them in it, Going Home remains pretty much a nothing.

    January 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Aside from the winning brooding performance by Robert Mitchum, this somber melodrama, a tortured father and son relationship film, is a downer.

Audience Reviews for Going Home

  • Mar 10, 2012
    For it's time, it's a gritty film with it's subject matter and all and it is one of those films that once you start to watch, you want to continue watching to find out what happens rather than being entertained throughout.
