What to know

critics consensus

The Quarry's potboiler premise is largely squandered on a slow-moving plot whose meanderings thwart the efforts of a talented cast. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for The Quarry

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (27)

  • "The Quarry" is a slow-burn Western noir built around terrific but understated performances by Michael Shannon and Shea Whigham.

  • This is usually the kind of movie that I want to soak into. I like these small-town noirs and anything with Michael Shannon usually gets a thousand bonus points from me, but this film was more just OK.

    April 20, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There are just two key ingredients, and they're not enough to make a meal.

    April 20, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • One note portrayals, skin deep characters, and a glacial pace all combine to prevent The Quarry from succeeding either as a slow-burn thriller or a message-oriented drama.

    April 19, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • There is something affecting about "The Quarry," even if it doesn't quite fully sustain its spare worldview, and despite the storytelling becoming increasingly cluttered by the end.

    April 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • "The Quarry" is so diagrammed that it uses its undernourished dark-side-of-the-heartland atmosphere to excuse the fact that nothing of note is really taking place.
