Performers, Cast and Crew:
Los Angeles Times - 10/07/2011
"[T]here is that allure of the Old West that is hard to resist, and there's plenty of grist in the story worth milling and mulling....The film reminds just how arresting an actor Shepard can be."
Box Office - 10/07/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] sexy, swagger-filled western."
Total Film - 06/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real draw is the performances. Noriega shines as the surrogate Sundance, while the grizzled Shepard, with a Newman-like twinkle, is at his irascible best."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2012
"[A] low-key, elegiac, fitfully intriguing revisionist western..."
Uncut - 05/01/2012
"BLACKTHORN exhibits a number of elegiac qualities befitting a Western about a man reaching a certain age in his life. Shepard summons up a mythic image of one of America's great outlaws..."
