Critic Reviews for Older Than America

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

with its pedestrian direction, variable performances and perfunctory dialogue, this is more supernatural soap opera than probing chiller and its bland look... lends the film the undeniable feel of a movie-of-the-week special.

Older than American Sniper too. And despite Bradley Cooper turning up championing Native Americans, this First Nation telling it like it is thriller about neo-colonialist oppression by a Native female filmmaker has been buried all these years as well.

Audience Reviews for Older Than America

It's about 2% substance and 98% message, but I can see why that would appeal to some, it's just not really for me.
