Critic Reviews for The Way Back
It's a solid effort. There are guts here, just not quite enough glory.
The force of Ben Affleck's perpetually anguished glower suggests depths that this redemption-through-sports drama doesn't reach.
Affleck is a superstar who carries darkness and sadness in his shoulders and in his eyes - his Batman was particularly joyless - which makes "The Way Back" an ideal role for him.
Surprisingly solid and not at all mawkish or maudlin as it might look from the outset. This is probably the best work of Ben Affleck's career.
Despite those momentum-stalling and unnecessary detours, the irresistibly cheer-worthy basketball sequences and Affleck's resonant and authentic performance are more than enough to carry the day.
