Critic Reviews for Blood on the Moon

All Critics (6)

...hopelessly convoluted and devoid of interesting, attention-grabbing elements...

August 14, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A good opening act and a great knockdown fight are pluses.

May 15, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Mitchum manages to find a sense of moral ambiguity to his amoral gunslinger that elevates the film above your typical western B-movie.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film carries a striking psychological intensity...

December 27, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
