      Critics Consensus

      As harrowing as it is humane, The Settlers serves as a sharp-edged excavation of long-marginalized history.

      Laura C Hard to watch but important to see and understand this history. Beautifully filmed. Man's inhumanity to man continues to astound. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Vicente C An absolute banger of a western. Not only entertaining, but also deeply thought-provoking and thoroughly disturbing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Stephen H The film was beautiful to look at and was well acted, but I just couldn't pick out any real theme or message from it. The tension and violence just seemed to lead to... nothing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Angélica B Puro wéstern de medio oeste Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Leticia q I don't have a realistic chance to watch this movie😕🧐 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Angie J Una película interesante en el océano.

      Tara Brady Irish Times The writer-director and his cinematographer, Simone D’Arcangelo, evoke spaghetti westerns with wide-angle vistas of forbidding horizons. Odd moments of Quentin Tarantino-style playfulness add to the unease. Rated: 4/5 Feb 24, 2024 Full Review Jonathan Romney Financial Times At its strongest, though, The Settlers is unsettling indeed, not least thanks to the complementary performances of Arancibia, British TV regular Stanley, and Alfredo Castro... Rated: 3/5 Feb 8, 2024 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Lacks for a dramatic centre, but all the constituent parts are worthwhile. Rated: 3/5 Feb 8, 2024 Full Review Filipe Freitas Always Good Movies Evokes the spirit of classic westerns, here infused with shades of Herzog and Jodorowsky’s filmmaking styles. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 18, 2024 Full Review Petr Navovy Pajiba Its relatively brief running time and patient pace combined with spare, subtle character work give it the feel of a parable or folk tale, even as it confronts the horrors of imperial subjugation with, at times, nearly unbearably frank realism. Apr 10, 2024 Full Review Rohan Naahar The Indian Express A queasy companion piece to Killers of the Flower Moon and The Zone of Interest; a harrowing revisionist western unpacks the moral compromises involved in the Birth of a Nation.
