Critic Reviews for My Son (Mon garçon)

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (9)

  • My Son finds its cinematic footing in a committed, steady, realism, and that creates a high-wire act of tension and suspense that's refreshingly clean and consistently effective.

  • Neither a bracing blast of vigilante pleasure nor an absorbing character piece, "My Son" is most notable for being Carion's second straight film about a father's desperate search for his son.

  • Think a more bare-bones, French-language "Taken."

    May 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "My Son" is so reserved in its storytelling and vague in its details that all it elicits is a yawn.

    May 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Now that Neeson has turned the mad-dad genre into a familiar blueprint of grimaces and cathartic violence, it's good to see one draw much of its tautness from tracking whether Canet's Julien is more likely to endanger himself than to locate his son.

  • It's got a nervously eerie feel to it that's grounded in Canet's gripping turn as a daddy out to do good for his estranged family.
