Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Kris Kristofferson, Val Kilmer and Dwight Yoakam are compelling in beautifully lived-in, vanity-free performances, but the drama's escalating dread fizzles in a farcical pileup of disaster."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Bloodworth has value, but there's a harsh price to be paid for the dramatic investment. I'd rather recommend a crudely shortened version of the film than no film at all."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"It's easier to get blood from a stone than to get entertainment value from Bloodworth."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"The film's payoff is clumsy and obvious. But Kristofferson, Corbin, Kilmer, Yoakam and Duff create indelible characters in just a few scenes each."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The visuals are as lingeringly rich as Carolina summers. The music is supervised by the legendary T-Bone Burnett and is authentic and poignant."
‑ Tim Cogshell, Boxoffice Magazine
"Decently sketched in its surrounding detail, but don't expect any dramatic catharsis; the track upon which Bloodworth travels is all too familiar, even if runs through a neighborhood less often glimpsed."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"Bloodworth is, for the most part, dominated by uninteresting, pointless encounters and conversations."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...feels like a family myth you've heard since childhood, a story handed down through generations."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
