Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The director Emilio Aragon wisely trains the camera on Mr. Duvall. "A Night in Old Mexico" is his baby, and he rocks it.
Fresh: A Tex-Mex-flavored shaggy-dog story that finds Duvall perfectly cast as a robustly cantankerous South Texas rancher determined to have one last fling south of the border.
Rotten: This poky, cliched, slackly told picture, directed by Emilio Aragon, would've felt dated a few decades ago; now it feels like a downright relic.
Rotten: Formulaic and often hard to swallow, the picture offers little beyond the familiar pleasures of Duvall's old-coot mode.
Duvall is excellent
Without Duvall, this movie would have been simply "okay", but it is so enjoyable to see him in this role. This movie has a little humor, a little action, and is just entertaining throughout. The characters are all interesting. I would say it would normally be rated PG-13 for just a little bit of language and a little bit of blood, but nothing over-the-top like in a lot of movies where it just seems out of place. If you're a fan of Robert Duvall at all, this is a must-see.
It kept me entertained through the entire movie. The acting was top rate. It's great to see veteran actors like Duvall, with a cast of up and coming performers.
Excellent story that displays Duvall’s persistent charisma.
