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.

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.
