A Tight, Suspenseful WesternReviewed byjharvey-4Vote: 8/10

"The Missing", starring Cate Blanchett and Tommy Lee Jones, is one of those movies that will come and go without getting noticed by audiences let alone any of the award programs. That's a shame because it's a tightly plotted film with interesting, sympathetic characters in a Western setting, but minus most of the tired Western genre devices.

In "The Missing", Cate Blanchett plays Maggie Gilkeson, a tough, frontier doctor / rancher with two young daughters (played by Evan Rachel Wood and Jenna Boyd), and a farmhand / love interest (Aaron Eckhart) named Brake, who also acts as her family's dedicated protector.

Unexpectedly, her father (Tommy Lee Jones) comes back into her life after abandoning his family years before to live with the Indians. His attempts to make amends for his past mistakes are rebuffed until rogue Indians attack Gilkeson's family and kidnap one of her daughters. Reluctantly, she asks her father to use his hunting & tracking skills to follow the Indians and recover her daughter.

The story in "The Missing" works along two tracks. While following and clashing with the rogue Indians provides ample suspense, action, and peril, the emotional drama between Gilkeson and her father keeps the movie interesting, dynamic, and makes us care about these peoples. For a Western, the film lacks all of the cardboard cutout characters. There are no gunslingers (in the tradition of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti Westerns) in "The Missing". The characters are flawed and emotionally vulnerable in their own believable, endearing way.

As a film, "The Missing" also provides a rare, balanced view of Native Americans during the mid 19th century. They are portrayed as neither doe-eyed victims (as in "Dances With Wolves"), nor are they mindless savages (as in almost any John Wayne Western). I will note that Chidin (Eric Schweig), the primary "bad guy" Indian, seems to go a little over the top at times, but this is forgivable given the film's many other strengths.

Suffice it to say that all of the acting is solid. We probably won't see any 'best actor' or 'best actress' nominations, but you never do with Westerns. Blanchett continues to expand her repertoire ranging from eccentric British Queen ("Elizabeth") to destructive bar trash ("Shipping News") with this role. Meanwhile, Tommy Lee Jones continues to be typecast as "the guy who hunts people" which started years ago with "The Fugitive" and hasn't varied much since.

In the end, one of the things I liked best about "The Missing" is the genuine danger for all of the major characters. The film establishes early on that bad things can and will happen to the characters we like the most. As a result, it's impossible to guess who will make it to the end of the story and that means you have real suspense (an increasingly rare occurrence in suspense films).

So, go see "The Missing" while everyone else is piling into the better-marketed blockbusters. You know you'll get both a good seat and a good movie without a lot of fuss.

A great cast in a good movieReviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 7/10

I wasn't sure whether I wanted to see The Missing, after hearing so many negative things about it. That said, part of me knew I should see it because the cast were of such high calibre. After finally watching The Missing, I actually thought it was a good movie with a great cast. I can see why some may dislike it, while the story has a great idea and is very gripping the changes in focus(western, than mystery thriller then a mystical theme introduced) become all too frequent and convoluted. The ending seemed rather tired and stretched too, while the last thirty minutes or so weren't as interesting as the rest of the film. However, it is a visually captivating movie, very well photographed and striking in the scenery. The music score is also powerful and the script is generally good and the mysticism was interesting to watch and had an intriguing angle to it. The cast are great, Cate Blanchett gives meat to her character and gives another strong account of herself, and Tommy Lee Jones looks the part and is suitably commanding. Of the support cast, although Evan Rachel Wood is good, Eric Schwieg's genuinely frightening villain gets top honours here. Overall, a great cast but for me the movie was just good, several impressive things but some area for improvement too. 7/10 Bethany Cox

Set in the year of 1885 Maggie Gilkeson (Cate Blanchett) is a doctor whoalong with her two daughters, Lilly and Dot and friend Brake Baldwin,happily live on a ranch in New Mexico. Until, one day a ghost fromMaggie'spast appears who, turns out to be her estranged father, Samuel Jones(TommyLee Jones). But Maggie does not wish to see her father after a troubledchildhood so she sends him on his way and hopes to get on with her lifewithout him. However, when her eldest daughter Lilly (Evan Rachel Wood) iskidnapped by a rebel group of ex-soldiers led by a witch doctor, Maggiehasno choice but to ask her father to help track down the kidnappers and findher daughter.

Full of continuous epic action 'The Missing' is a film that does not showmany faults and has everything you want to see in a first rate film, fromtension to suspense with loads of great drama, tremendous acting and evenwitchcraft.

Director Ron Howard does it yet again, creating a superb film which Ithinkhe can easily put into his best of list. The only real bad thing aboutthisfilm is that it goes on a bit too long (which in all fairness couldn'treally be helped) but despite that, it grips you and holds on tight bothunpredictable and unforgettable with great performances from Tommy LeeJones, who never ceases to amaze, Cate Blanchett who is as good as ever,Evan Rachel Wood Gives another super performance and I was particularlyimpressed with young Jenna Boyd.
