Critic Reviews for Goldstone

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (2)

My nominee for best overhead shots in world cinema.

June 15, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

[A] socially conscious, supremely accomplished procedural thriller.

June 10, 2016 | Full Review…

With its tossed-off subplots involving shonky mining deals, sex trafficking and alcohol smuggling, it resembles a TV season's worth of developments condensed maladroitly into feature length, even as its pace remains languid.

October 16, 2017 | Full Review…

A compelling mix of slow-burn mystery and explosive action set against the harsh beauty of the Outback landscape.

September 15, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Goldstone might look great but it has plot holes as vast as the Outback itself . These hobble any attempt at creating tension or even maintaining dramatic plausibility, a quality in which the film does not seem particularly interested.

December 26, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

[Mystery Road's] pace was ill suited for a tale harboring so many secrets until its explosive finale. Goldstone [lays] everything on the line instead.

Audience Reviews for Goldstone


Solid storytelling as a mixed breed detective comes to an isolated Outback mining community and stirs up the muck. Good stuff.
