Loved this movie so much. Rarely can I sit through an entire movie let alone watch it TWICE. That good!!!
This has just become the best movie I have ever seen
I agree with the previous reviews. This was one of the best movies I've seen all year. Suspenseful story telling, great acting and with no CGI. Maybe movie sleeper of 2017.
Best movie I have seen in quite some time. Jeremy Renner is good in this! Great story line.....
Great movie, full of suspense. You will appreciate it if you are intelligent and mindful of American issues.
Great story; dark, moody and well acted. Only one cheesy line in the movie, “why don’t you come hunt one for me “ referring to a human predator. A cold, lonely and desolate existence has a tendency to make for a perfect environment for bad things to happen, and they do.
My wife and I made it about half way through it before I took out a pocket knife and we discussed slitting our wrists. we walked out. OMG, so boring, class C acting and laughable to think someone paid big money to have this movie made. Total waste of money if you go to the movies to see something interesting.
Definitely not ready for prime time.
One of the best sleepers of the year. Well acted. Interesting plot. Action explodes upon you. Totally unexpectedly engrossing. Loved it.
Jeremy Renner is quite masterful - he's so, soooo underrated! Native American Performers were terrific. Liz Olsen, not so much. Riveting action... Grieving scenes much needed in our realm, as is education on the shocking prevalence of violence against women, no less Native American women!.
A great movie that keeps your attention though out the whole movie and looking for the ending which is unveiled only at the end.
An excellent movie, a lot to learn. I would recommend it. The content is sad but, it provides knowledge.
excellent on the edge of your seat movie. Great acting. Try to see it without knowing too much about the plot. You won't be disappointed.
This was fairly well written and well acted. Good filming and sensitive to some issues re: Native American and American interaction especially with regards to resource extraction on or close to Native lands. Some may think its not realistic with how the goons and out-camp workers were portrayed. But I know better...it can be exactly like that! Although I don't think a incident between goons and enforcement like the one portrayed in the movie could ever happen in North America, it probably has happened in other countries...and who knows in the future as resource scarcity becomes an emerging issue. I would watch it again and recommend to a friend. I think any CO's in Canada who go see this could learn a lesson.
I just saw this movie and was pleasantly surprised. I think this is one of the best movies of the year. The plot was outstanding! The performances were so well done by all involved, I could see a great many nominations and awards coming out of this one movie. Go see it!
Very good movie! Worth seeing for sure. Realistic as hell .Worth the money and time to see it.
Great movie with a special message!
I am a Tony Hillerman fan. This movie had that flavor.
Whined River is just that. If you haven't gone to see it yet, then you have something to give thanks for during the holidays.
Great movie. The fellow who came with me said he didn't expect it to be as good as it turned out to be. Really worth going to see, but the content is a sad reality. We have to do better. Worth all 5 stars.
The movie is meaningful and impactful. The message is short and clear and actually brings awareness to issues we as a society often neglect. very well done.
Definitely the best movie of 2017. A very real and relevant story, highlighting a sad truth about our society. Very well done.
I'm surprised how much everyone seems to love this movie. Realistic and gritty, yes. But if watching that rape scene doesn't disturb you to your core, that makes me sad for our society. I'm surprised more people didn't mention it
The BEST movie of the year. It held my attention every minute right to the end. Great acting. Would love to see Jeremy Renner in more good movies. He was very good.
No words can describe how powerful and raw this movie is. It is brilliant all around. Although audeince members should be warned, this is not a movie for the faint of heart, though that is part of its beauty. Highly recommended.
The acting was great. Well done in my opinion.
Good movie, one of the best movies this year. An opinion from someone who sees a movie every week.
Jeremy Renner was outstanding in this movie. I'm glad someone has brought this subject out in the open. Thank you.
Very thought provoking movie . Outstanding acting , story line and scenery.
Movie is original, surprisingly action packed and emotional. No cgi -realistic. Excellent movie.
5 Stars Best Movie I've seen in a long time!!! Great acting. Jeremy Reimer deserves an Oscar nod for this one! Great story. Was on the edge of my seat the whole time!!! Also showcases the struggles Native Americans face especially missing Indigenous women! Got me right in the heart! I would see it again !!!! A must See!!!!
Great movie. Keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Acting, scenery all great
Whats all the complaints about the sound. Im 63, saw it a rinky dink theater in small town BC and had no problem. Put your popcorn down get up and tell the manager to turn it up. Still an award winning movie best and one of the best shoot out scenes. Only complaint it was set in an enviroNment that was supposed to be killing cold but looked like a nice spring day in most shots. Ie. Could see no ones breath.
I really enjoyed this movie. This is probably one of the best face to face shootouts since Ok Corral. Acting by Olsen and Reiner was excellent. For sure it will get a nod for Best Picture. Portrayal of how indigenous peoples are treated especially its women is sad but true. Only unbelievable point in this movie was that it really looke like a warm soring in the mountains not the -50 it was portraying.
So, so disturbing to watch. Violence against women, really an ugly portrayal of humanity, though not inaccurate. Would definitely not recommend
It's a great movie with plenty of talent, suspense, some humour, but sadly true events. Graham Green was great as usual and Jeremy Renner played his role like a true wildlife agent. I highly recommend seeing this movie.
Imagine Fargo with no humor, plot, decent plot, or acting. Now toss in grieving people, and perpetually cloudy skies, that's Windy River. Wait for the paperback edition on VHS, don't waste money on the DVD one.
