Consensus: A brutal, slow-moving drama that unfolds among some great-looking scenery.

Derek Adams
Time Out

The overweight middle section is repetitive, contrived and, well, boring. But at least the views are spectacular and Brosnan, especially, is likeably quirky.

Though the chase threatens to go on too long, the suspense remains high because we don't know which man is the real villain, or if there's a villain at all.

This is London

Finally recalls a less convincing version of those of Anthony Mann which managed realism and the mythic without a false note.

San Francisco Chronicle

A Western short on dialogue and long on pomposity, is little more than an extended chase scene down a snow-filled mountaintop to a desert floor.

The technical revels are arresting, but Seraphim Falls is slow of motive and thin of plot -- a western that dies with its boots on.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

Seraphim Falls isn't completely without interest, particularly for those of us who still like Westerns and bemoan their demise almost as much as we bemoan the demise of the movie musical.

Von Ancken at times brings his debut very close to something grand and memorable.

A pretty decent western with a quality cast. It is very much a tracking a man on the run film, a very dangerous man as it happens. It is wonderfully shot to as… More
