Critic Reviews for Galveston
It's uncompromising but at the end, it does leave some room for hope and Foster, in his intense, contained way, makes Roy's redemption highly plausible unexpectedly poignant.
"Galveston" is tough, uncompromising, and hauntingly believable, just a little too slow and a lot too serious for today's typical action audiences.
Bleak and gripping, Galveston offers a compelling experience for those who don't demand pure escapism and are willing to sample the darker side of cinema.
The film equivalent of a familiar, not too special song that's been brilliantly re-arranged and performed.
A muted crime drama that runs out of plot too soon, but makes up for it with powerhouse performances and a finely shaded sense of place.
