  • Though the film opens with an intriguing burnished look, it bogs down about halfway through with talkiness and uneven pacing. show more

  • An uncharacteristically stiff Mortensen can't break free from the clichés that constrain his character, who feels more like a symbol than a real person. show more

  • Paced deliberately in a way that reinforces the tragedy of evil flourishing when good men do nothing, Good may find boxoffice returns slow to build but the film's aim is true and patient audiences will be well rewarded. show more
