Finally recalls a less convincing version of those of Anthony Mann which managed realism and the mythic without a false note.
August 24, 2007
A very impressive feature debut with this brutal western revenge thriller.
August 24, 2007
The edgy pleasure is to be found in the sheer brutality of the chase and the bitter struggle to survive the elements.
August 24, 2007
The chase is on in brooding western Seraphim Falls, with Liam Neeson gunning for Pierce Brosnan across snowy mountains, river rapids and blazing desert.
August 24, 2007
The overweight middle section is repetitive, contrived and, well, boring. But at least the views are spectacular and Brosnan, especially, is likeably quirky.

A wearisome revenge Western.

Rob Roy pursues James Bond in an old-fashioned Western that's cripplingly short on action.
August 24, 2007
Von Ancken at times brings his debut very close to something grand and memorable.

Messages, as Sam Goldwyn famously advised, are better left to Western Union.
August 24, 2007
As the story self-destructs, we are left with the majestic scenery, photographed by John Toll, and the pleasure of two good actors from one side of the Atlantic stretching themselves to seem convincing on the other.

As Gideon misses chance after chance to break free from the posse on his tail, you just want Seraphim Falls to end.
August 24, 2007
It may be too ponderous for some, and an appearance by Anjelica Huston as a snake-oil peddler near the end is a touch too surreal, but if you're a fan of Westerns the way they used to make them, you'll be mesmerised.
August 24, 2007
An unconvincing attempt at an old-fashioned western, Seraphim Falls works best as a chase thriller but falls apart when it tries to harness the mythic power of the American frontier.
August 24, 2007
An unremarkable revenge/chase western, bolstered by its name cast, matter-of-fact violence and Toll's pristine photography. Eventually a little pretentious - with Anjelica Huston's cameo the nadir - but if you love oaters, it's just worth the time.
August 24, 2007
A revenge epic it may be, but a rip-roaring rampage it's not.
August 24, 2007
Great performances, splendid looks, but its grip slackens toward a rather fuzzy finale.
August 23, 2007
Enjoyable, frequently tense and superbly directed chase thriller with strong performances and spectacular photography throughout.
