Metacritic Score

    USA Today Mike Clark

    Mitchum's celebrated skill with dialects has never been more evident. [02 Feb 2007, p.10D]

    IndieWire

    A remarkably effective and absorbing picture (if a little too long), with another sterling performance from Mitchum.

  • 60

    Time Out

    Zinnemann's customary care for detail pays occasional dividends, but the film goes on rather too long.
