In 1885 New Mexico, a frontier medicine woman forms an uneasy alliance with her estranged father when her daughter is kidnapped by an Apache brujo.
An expertly acted and directed Western. But like other Ron Howard features, the movie is hardly subtle.
Even Cate Blanchett can't save this misbegotten horse opera.
... a strange and haunting hybrid that's part Western, part supernatural thriller.
a monotonous, dreary, wretched kitchen sink drama from post-Civil War New Mexico
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.
The Missing is holiday entertainment for anyone who likes either a dollop of feminist uplift or family values (or both!) with their bloodletting.
Ron Howard's vividly gritty and brutally arresting Western is a powerfully effective piece of work.
The rawest, scariest, most nerve-rattling saddlebags-and- sagebrush saga since Robert Mulligan's The Stalking Moon.
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.
A disappointment; relentlessly bleak and brutal.
