Critic Reviews for The Reivers

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The Reivers is a pleasant, wholesome, straightforward movie of the sort (as they say) they don't make anymore.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A rambling and pointless movie.

October 2, 2019 | Full Review…

A well acted adaptation of William Faulkner's last novel, offering good roles for Steve McQueen and Rupert Cross, only the second black to receive an oscar nomination by 1969.
