Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good For the most part, The Missing is a compelling, involving story. It contains a few nicely unexpected moments, and the characters and their relationships are effectively realized. ...it's a worthy effort and makes for an enjoyable (if slightly overlong) two-plus hours. (It) is arguably Ron Howard's grittiest effort to date as a filmmaker.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ... a clunky Western ...I couldn't believe any part of this movie. At 135 minutes, The Missing is way too long. This is basically a B Western jumped up out of its category. As a lean little oater, this story could have held down half of a double bill back when Westerns were popular, but these days audiences need a reason to see a Western.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

From these somewhat mixed opinions I would say The Missing is an above average movie (not great, but certainly not bad). Many enjoyed it very much, like me, but an equal number rated it a little low. Fortunately, only a few rated it as low as Poor so chances are you will find it enjoyable, at least to some degree.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The story of Maggie Gilkeson (Cate Blanchett), a young woman raising her two daughters in an isolated and lawless wilderness. When her oldest daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) is kidnapped by a psychopathic killer with mystical powers (Eric Schweig), Maggie is forced to re-unite with her long estranged father (Jones) to rescue her. The killer and his brutal cult of desperados have kidnapped several other teenage girls, leaving a trail of death and horror across the desolate landscape of the American Southwest. Maggie and her father are in a race against time to catch up with the renegades and save her daughter, before they cross the Mexican border and disappear forever.
