Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even Cate Blanchett can't save this misbegotten horse opera."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"... a strange and haunting hybrid that's part Western, part supernatural thriller."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Ron Howard's vividly gritty and brutally arresting Western is a powerfully effective piece of work."
‑ Joe Leydon, The Moving Picture Show
"Despite gorgeous scenery and an uncharacteristically subtle soundtrack from James Horner, the film has a 'been-there, done-that' quality."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Christianity Today
"'Breathtakingly beautiful and menacingly primitive.'"
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, Las Vegas Mercury
"Mr. Howard keeps the emotional temperature of the family reunion as chilly as possible, but it's clear that the father-daughter relationship is the core of the drama, and the rest is all time-consuming digressions."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The Missing is holiday entertainment for anyone who likes either a dollop of feminist uplift or family values (or both!) with their bloodletting."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"A disappointment; relentlessly bleak and brutal."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Uma boa fotografia e atuações competentes (especialmente da pequena Boyd) não são o bastante para que ignoremos o roteiro longo e sem foco que, além de investir em um deslocado tom sobrenatural, ainda conta um desfecho fraquíssimo."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The Missing est un suspense des plus ordinaires."
‑ Louis-Jérôme Cloutier, Panorama
"The rawest, scariest, most nerve-rattling saddlebags-and- sagebrush saga since Robert Mulligan's The Stalking Moon."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"There's a pretty good Western hidden somewhere amid the extraneous scenes, unnecessary characters and adoring shots of the New Mexico wilderness, but Howard didn't have the heart to cut his movie."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
""The Missing" is overly drawn out but benefits much from Jones's and Blanchett's absorbing performances."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Basically, The Missing is Ron Howard's John Ford impersonation, and the end result is as strangely schizophrenic as it sounds."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"A western with a twist: the bad guy, who happens to be Native American, is also a sorcerer."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
