Critic Reviews for Hickok

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

My favorite performance in the film comes from Bruce Dern, enthusiastically loopy as the booze-soaked town doctor. You can rarely accuse Bruce Dern of phoning it in.

July 13, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A perfectly serviceable Western featuring a comfortingly familiar storyline, Hickok will tide genre fans over until more substantial offerings come along.

July 8, 2017 | Full Review…

The legendary Wild West gunslinger rides again in this unabashedly retrograde oater.

Top Critic

For a film about one of the fastest guns in the West, the dramatically lightweight "Hickok" is mighty slow on the draw.

July 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite some stylish shootouts, this mildly compelling if haphazardly assembled oater lacks historical context and fires too many narrative blanks.

July 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Straightforward drama featuring "Wild Bill" Hickok is unlikely to impress theatre audiences but could come as a welcome surprise to genre fans on home-viewing platforms.
