What to Know

Critics Consensus

Black '47 anchors its grim and gritty action in deceptively deep genre storytelling, although its epic ambitions arguably exceed its grasp.

David Stratton The Australian Director Lance Daly has made a bleak and gripping film. Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 21, 2018 Full Review Matthew Lickona San Diego Reader Director and co-writer Lance Daly tells a blunt-force story in blunt-force fashion, draining the color from both landscape and denizens, and spelling out details in dialogue where he thinks it might be helpful. Rated: 2/5 Oct 27, 2018 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com That it all works as well as it does is as much a testament to the crackerjack cast as it is to Daly's brooding, violently controlled direction. Rated: 3/4 Oct 19, 2018 Full Review Chris Hunneysett Daily Mirror (UK) very much an Irish Braveheart,and is intense, timely and terrific Rated: 4/5 Jun 9, 2019 Full Review Joni Blyth One Room With A View Ham-fisted dialogue aside, Martin Feeney's crusade to put the world to rights is undeniably entertaining, if clumsily told. Rated: 3/5 Feb 8, 2019 Full Review Sarah Manvel Critic's Notebook Black '47 stays an interesting and worthwhile film due to the merry band that attempts to track Feeney down.

Thomas S As a descendant of the Irish people who were forced to migrate, I found this very moving and uplifting at the same time. It doesn't hide from the fact that the British could have helped instead of taking advantage of Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/23 Full Review John B It was good overall as it was interesting to see how the people of Ireland lived in 1847 during the famine of the potato crops they depended on. Good story as we see the Ranger trying to bring justice to the land run by England & the injustice to the people of Ireland Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/16/23 Full Review Serge L On the backdrop of the potato famine that devastated Ireland and helped the english take more over, a Jack Reacher seeks revenge. Historical recreations makes us travel back in time and see how it really was. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/10/22 Full Review Audience Member This was absolutely fantastic.
