Critic Reviews of "The Way Back"New York Daily NewsApril 12, 2016
The man-versus-the-natural world story is in Weir's wheelhouse, and Harris and Farrell get into a scene-stealing duel. Worth the trek.NewsdayFebruary 18, 2011
Weir has always loved atmospheric locales and group dynamics, and here he makes the most of bothFilm.comFebruary 03, 2011
Eventually the film itself is something of an endurance test, and not as rewarding as it hopes to be. But it's a worthy venture, earnest and well-produced and occasionally gripping.New YorkerJanuary 31, 2011
The abiding sensation, at the end, is one not of fulfillment but of exhaustion.Miami HeraldJanuary 31, 2011
This is an impressive production and technical feat, but through most of it, I kept thinking about how difficult the filming conditions must have been, and not about the lives of the men in front of me.St. Louis Post-DispatchJanuary 31, 2011
he long stretches between stations make The Way Back an arduous road.Seanax.comAugust 21, 2016
[Peter] Weir is marvelously attuned to the natural world but keeps the focus on the human story while acknowledging the power of the natural world, not hostile so much as inhospitable...Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
A gorgeously mounted epic that for all its virtues feels maddeningly remote.We Got This CoveredJuly 24, 2013
The Way Back is an inspiring story that is beautifully photographed and full of interesting and well acted characters.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
Like its characters, this drama plods along but its compelling plot makes it worth seeing.DeadspinJune 22, 2013
"The Way Back" is a boring movie. Repetitive, protracted and wearisome. Mostly, though: It's just long.Cinema WriterFebruary 16, 2013
a solid, resonant meditation on survival, on hope, on the value of life in the face of implacable hostility, portrayed memorably by an excellent cast and [Director] Weir's vast, brutal, awe-inspiring landscapes
