The Hero (2017)
Critic Consensus: The Hero rests on Sam Elliott's understated performance, which proves more than capable of carrying the film through the less inspired moments of its somewhat clichéd story.

Critic Reviews for The Hero
Nothing terribly novel here, but director Brett Haley has assembled a strong cast and a generous spirit, and Elliott has a way of finding poetry in silent gaze, speaking his lines as if written on velvet.
Of course the main selling point is Sam Elliott aka Lee Hayden. I don't even know who makes that barbecue sauce Lee is touting at the beginning of the film or whether it's really good or just mass-produced glop, but based on that voiceover, I'd buy it.
This is a real movie about real people doing real things and facing real problems.
Even at its most contrived, "The Hero" exerts a soothing attraction not unlike the man at its center.
Elliott invests his character with such authority that the movie resounds like a pair of bootheels.
