Critic Reviews for The Frontier

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (2)

  • An intimate family drama that subtly and delightfully subverts expectations of what kind of a tale it is and where it's headed.

    September 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film means well but feels generic, strained and claustrophobic (despite several scenes at a deserted beach), with tight close-ups and sudden confrontations.

    September 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • There's clearly a troubled history here, but co-writer/director Matt Rabinowitz doesn't artfully withhold information so much as lay it all on the table a bit earlier than he might have.

    September 10, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Despite whatever rough edges it may have, the pieces come together to make a compelling whole.

    July 21, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The Frontier is one of those films we watch on the edge of our seat. Sometimes it edges towards something rather complex which requires an elegant and original resolution.

    March 12, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • While its theatrical prospects are limited...The Frontier could find a strong second life via cable and streaming video, particularly among older moviegoers looking for character-driven dramas rather than action-heavy genre pictures.
