An over-the-top Ian McShane is the chief selling point for this formulaic neo-noir drama, which also stars Patrick Wilson.
There's literally nothing in this movie that feels like it arose from an impulse to either entertain or create art.
"The Hollow Point" limps to a close without fully rewarding the effort expended on its making.
Really, this is sub-par "Fargo" meets rehashed "No Country for Old Men" ...
"The Hollow Point" might not reach the hallucinatory heights of a Joel and Ethan Coen thriller, but there's much to admire.
Lopéz-Gallego ... ultimately forgets to focus on the humanity that might have enriched this needlessly twisty crime story.
Lopez-Gallego spends more time polishing his weapons than he does strengthening editing and building characterization.
A stylish, neo-noir/western with a standout performance by Ian McShane.
The tragedy is that the film ... is so utterly incompetent, so inexcusably bewildering, and so bafflingly hollow.
All the fine actors, narrative subversions and dusty landscapes in the world can't save a film that thinks it's saying a lot without saying much at all.
Gonzalo López-Gallego's direction isn't confident enough to allow us to ignore The Hollow Point's contrivances.
The Hollow Point is a blazing contemporary western that finds pleasure in punishment.
Not the worst and far from a great neo noir thriller but it had great actors doing okay with the shoddy material. This very bleak film could've done with a splash of humour to add something different because the camera work and script is very formulaic.
