An excellent film set in provincial, rural early 1960s America - Let Him Go review by PJ

Spoiler Alert
17/05/2021

In 1961, in Montana, George Blackledge (Kevin Costner), a retired sheriff, lives with his wife Margaret (Diane Lane), their son, their daughter-in-law, and the couple's baby. The movie starts off as a sentimental drama, and develops into a thriller. It has been described as 'a neo-Western film'. The plot is interesting because the characters are, and the acting is excellent. More particularly, K Costner's on-screen presence is compelling. As for D Lane, she is simply remarkable in the way she acts her part. She is no longer young, but there is a radiant beauty to her. Also, her face is very expressive, and she always strikes the right note in every situation. Neither character speaks that much, but we get to understand their feelings and emotions effortlessly. All the other characters are also highly convincing.

The movie feels very real, even though the story is hardly ordinary, in the way that it unfolds. The central characters are developed in terms of their expectations, their attitudes, their behaviour... The atmosphere of provincial, rural America in the early 1960s is reconstituted very well. The tension is never far from the surface, sustaining our interest right through the film. Overall, in the register that the film has chosen, it works extremely well. There is something profoundly honest about the characters played by K Costner and D Lane, and their on-screen couple seems close and convincing: they look like a real-life couple, as they interact.

An excellent film, which I would recommend; I suspect it may become a classic of the genre. My only reservation would be the title, which is not very good, although it does relate closely to the storyline. The title is bland and a bit daft: it does not do justice to the high quality of the movie.

Good film but some gory bits! - Let Him Go review by giantrolo

Overall, we really enjoyed this film! It was beautifully told and beautifully acted. There were some pretty gory bits in it, though - that Weboy clan is monstrous! Definitely recommended!

Gripping - Let Him Go review by EL

Spoiler Alert
21/05/2021

I really enjoyed this movie and had read other reviews recommending and praising it. There was, some ‘hairy’ moments, even I looked away. It felt very real and the characters, especially Kevin Costner (George Blackledge) and his wife Diane Lane (Margaret Blackledge) were superb. You believe them to be a normal, ordinary couple. And there is not a lot of dialogue between them or throughout the film, and what is not said is just as important. The tension really builds in parts and you dread, or think what will happen. 

The movie certainly kept me gripped, a normal story about a couple who are hit by tragedy. Then the movie unfolds at a steady pace. The cinematography and ‘60s western feel lend itself to its authenticity and richness of the story. I would recommend.
