No Country For Old Men | Ratings & Reviews

"A scorching blast of tense genre filmmaking shot through with rich veins of melancholy, down-home philosophy and dark, dark humor, No Country for Old Men reps a superior match of source material and filmmaking talent."

VarietyVariety

"The Coens' latest film is drawing comparisons to one of their earliest, Miller's Crossing. It's certainly one of their least amusing pictures and suggests a suitable way forward for the brothers, who seemed to lose their edge in recent years. It has all the elements of a classic, although it does jump between scenes and settings a little haphazardly. Thankfully, it has Bardem to hold everything together..."

Sunday Star-TimesSunday Star-Times

"They have given us the ridiculous (The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy) and the sublime (Fargo and The Big Lebowski). The Coen brothers' newest is their best yet..."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A great story is unravelled in the most enthralling and unexpected way, with some dark funny moments and some outstanding performances including not nearly enough of Woody Harrelson and Kelly McDonald."

NewshubNewshub

"Violent, poetic, gripping, thrilling and blackly funny: that’ll be the Coens doing what they do best then. Now with added humanity..."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"The Coen brothers sure know how to spin a yarn. With a surprising amount of wry humour for such a bloody and grim tale, No Country for Old Men may well be their greatest yarn yet."

Christchurch PressChristchurch Press

"No Country can be enjoyed as a straightforward genre thriller (and there are suspense sequences here that rival the best of Hitchcock) but it is worth digging a little deeper to expose the bedrock of aching sadness beneath the brutality."
