Critic Reviews for Wind River

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (6)

There's something to be said for a well-crafted motion picture, cinematically astute, that demands that we sit down and pay attention for a solid two hours or so, with no intermittent fridge runs.

An engaging thriller, anchored by a strong sense of place (becoming a Sheridan specialty) and a great performance from Jeremy Renner.

January 25, 2017 | Full Review…

This bitter, visceral, and almost parodically intense thriller knows what it takes to survive.

January 25, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Sheridan's gift for popping, antagonistic dialogue pays big dividends in the film's best scenes-many involving frustrations of law-enforcement protocol-and it's hard to write off the Elmore Leonard-ish economy of the plotting.

A strong directorial debut.

Sheridan wants us to know these people, this terrain, to feel the bite of the cold and the lonely sting of their lives.
