Bill tries to take the blame but Texas Ranger Ramirez (George Lopez) sees through the lie, spurring Jackson to flee south on horseback across the Rio Grande to become a gringo "illegal alien" in Mexico. Chased by Texas Rangers and Mexican federales, Jackson journeys across deserts and mountains to seek forgiveness from the dead boy's vengeful father (Jorge A.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Noble yet often monotonous, No Man's Land proves that the old adage about a road paved with good intentions is just as true for a dusty Western trail.

      David Stratton The Australian The film's powerful story and sense of place almost succeed in compensating for its drawbacks. And the insights into that troubled border country are welcome. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 8, 2021 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian As contemporary westerns go, this one is at least nice to look at, with the endless shots of landscapes at magic hour. Rated: 3/5 May 25, 2021 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times ...any lingering doubts about No Man's Land trying too hard are erased... Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 23, 2021 Full Review Ben Flanagan Vague Visages No Man's Land, Conor Allyn's earthy effort at a serious revisionist western, is a film of good intentions that goes awry when it attempts to unpack any of its ideas. Feb 7, 2024 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies It has some rough patches and it tries to cover too much ground. But the Allyn brothers tell their story with heart and conviction, and it’s hard not to appreciate their ambition. Rated: 3/5 Aug 17, 2022 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Juan Pablo Ramirez's lush cinematography enriches the film on every level and Jake Allyn acquits himself well. If you don't mind the slow pace, it's a very watchable piece of work. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      steve w The screenplay is the reason this film fails badly. It cannot decide which point of view to present. After beautifully depicting and defining the area between the border and Texas as a dangerous filled with 'coyotes' who may take you across or just as soon kill you, the film becomes "Both Sides Now" in a circuitous, laborious, stultifying, stupefying bore. There are the marauders who cut the rancher's fences, steal his cattle on a regular basis. Defend your land and way of life by pursuing them and come across good, moral, religious people fleeing a life of poverty, hunger and crime for the opportunity in America. 'Bad' escape arrest; 'Good' get hurt or killed. The hard-working ranch family become duplicitous, evasive liars, totally ignoring the emotions of the son that did the killing. He speaks, pleads, they ignore his anguish. Foolishly, he runs across the border where he is an emotional wreck and a cultural idiot. WHY? We begin a long, long journey seeking redemption, but first we must have 'adventures' to show how wonderful the Mexican people really are. The ending violence in which the grotesque coyote is justly killed but all others kiss and makeup is absurd as is the two year prison sentence. A waste of time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/25/22 Full Review Audience Member Terrible movie. The fight scenes look extremely fake. There is a cheesy, disgusting love affair and the story line is extremely weak. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review jelisije j Like most stereotypical border (Mexican and American ) movies they have to relate a very human and progressive message while producing a unrealistic story in the process. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A different take to the often cliched genre of a typical Western movie on illegal border crossings from Mexico to America & then vice versa as a young American crosses illegaly into Mexico righting a wrong & seeking redemptionfor his grevious actions. Definitely a worthwhile watch with an incredible line up of well known actors in supporting roles. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Ken R This thoughtful film could have been a minor modern epic if it had been given a stronger script. As is, it holds interest until some poorly developed story details begin to become too obvious. It's also photographically patchy, with cheap handheld shots bringing down the better-constructed sequences. Some distracting editing in the first half won't help it gain the attention the overall story is straining for – a pity because the whole thing has very good intentions as we follow a young man's attempts to redeem himself for an accidental killing. Performances are sincere with the casting generally convincing, it's just the weak moments in the script that let it down. Music is well used throughout including a couple of interesting songs and the outdoor locations standing in for the Tex-Mex border add impact – those who don't feel the need to analyze their entertainment won't mind the flaws, others may be let down. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/30/21 Full Review Audience Member It didn't suck. Well paced build-up that keeps it's focus throughout. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
