Critic Reviews for Let Him Go

All Critics (134) | Top Critics (30)

Its pleasures are almost contemplative, and although there is plenty of action, the real meat of the movie is the action in the characters' heads.

In many ways, it feels like the midcentury pulp thrillers it emulates: well-plotted and grisly, but almost ephemeral. It is Lane's performance that lingers, one that dares to be uniquely hopeful about the future, and letting the old ways die.

Let Him Go wastes no time pulling you into an emotional grasp so compelling you can't believe what happens as the narrative moves from one shocking scene to the next in a pandemic of violence.

Top Critic

Superb acting and complex characters prop up this flawed and intense thriller that loses its way with an absurdly violent third act.

November 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Watching Diane Lane and Kevin Costner connect as a couple determined to retrieve their grandson is pure movie heaven.
