Secular Movie Critics
…a brutal Western… This is Diane Lane’s movie, all the way. She is as poised as ever, and she can switch on the charm, but she radiates a force of purpose that will not be muffled or repelled, and it’s fascinating to see Costner, so accustomed to saddling up as a leading man, dismount and back away. …
Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
…A skilfully executed thriller that is narrowly aimed at one demographic—audiences over 50 who like a little violence with their late-life dramas—but succeeds at entertaining just about anyone who comes across its dusty, blood-soaked path. …
Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
…A quiet, adult drama interrupted by genre-pic contrivances… heartfelt, handsomely made but unconvincing tonal mash-up…
John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
…a touchingly bone-weary romance steeped in vengeance… “Let Him Go” isn’t subtle, but as a genre film it’s original and shrewdly made, with a floridly gripping suspense. …
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…climaxes are grisly… Despite a searing performance from Diane Lane, writer-director Thomas Bezucha’s film ultimately self-immolates. …a hammy melodrama that’s parched for backstory… [1/4]
Dan Rubbins, Slant
…a slow-moving sexagenarian rampage of revenge… a tanned hide of a movie about the violence that results from conflicting ideas of what this country should be… [C]
David Ehrlich, IndieWire
…It’s a throwback slow-burn thriller and an over-the-top scenery-chewing buffet — sometimes in the same scene. The back-and-forth tone prevents it from being the serious examination of human behavior (and misbehavior) it believes itself to be. It makes the experience of watching more strange than immersive. …
