"A nice western, the news was good and deep, it’s great to see tom hanks playing a Western role that he did a good job at and i think he’s played pretty much all movie genres now ha"

"As in "True Grit" (Henry Hathaway, 1969), the protagonist accompanies a girl on a journey through the dangerous Western. But Captain Kidd is not a drunkard like Marshal Rooster Cogburn, he is a man whose ethics make him strange amidst deception and violence. Like him, this film is low-key, calm, with some good action scenes but a general tone of irrelevance. It is a western as decent as it is not very remarkable."

"A good story, well told. I think both Hanks and Costner have improved with age, primarily by choosing roles befitting their years instead of trying to be action heroes etc like some of their peers. “Let Him Go” the recent Costner film and this one see both playing their age, and turning in fine performances because of it, rather than in spite of it. Hanks has a list of classics to his credit, along with some stinkers, but if you can place The Green Mile, Road to Perdition, Saving Private Ryan amongst your credits, you’ve done well! This isn’t up there with those gems, but it’s a good solid performance in a watchable tale that does him credit."

Tom Hanks and Director Paul Greengrass have combined to create a truly moving and memorable western which is one of the best films of 2020.

Hanks stars as Captain Kidd; a former Confederate Captain making his way in occupied Texas in the post-Civil-War era. Kidd travels from town to town reading More

One of the MOST boring attempts at making a Western by a Top shelf actor to date.. Hollywood really needs to come to grips with fact they NO longer have what it takes to make these kind of films...and havnt for a few years now...

Now continue on with the worlds dieing films, or Zombies, or femal More

This doesn’t happen very often, but I actually read their book this movie was based on. I enjoy both. There were a couple of changes I noticed, but I wasn’t offended by them. With one it seemed they had Captain Kidd escape a jam with a speech rather than an explosion, and it worked for me.
