It's a story for the ages and one that finally gets the fitting ending it deserves.
December 10, 2019
[David] Milch's gift for raw frontier poetry, with Shakespearean soliloquies filtered through X-rated doggerel, is as entertaining as ever in a violent yet appropriately elegiac (and oh-so-satisfying) two-hour farewell.
December 10, 2019
The term "fan service" is often used as a cudgel against artists who may or may not be pandering to their loyal audiences, but the Deadwood movie feels like an ideal version of that concept.
December 10, 2019
The flowing, often downright poetic dialogue still rolls off the screen and into your ears like beautifully profane music.
December 10, 2019
As complete and final as the story may rest on its conclusion, one can't help but yearn for more.
December 10, 2019
[David] Milch's writing magnificently blends the high and the low, with old-world phraseology punctuated with great stinging bursts of vulgarity.
December 10, 2019
This is a finely wrought return to a modern Golden Age TV classic, which more than makes up for its lack of surprises with the almost tender treatment of its characters, and dialogue that's written to be relished.
December 10, 2019
With [David] Milch's words... [Ian] MacShane still raises f'ing and blinding to a poetic art.

A nostalgic and bittersweet end.

Though the movie does not have the same depth as the three-season series, it offers some new insights on the motley band of humans... who are trying to do right by each other in the face of monopoly capitalism and a political system ruled by the wealthy..

Deadwood: The Movie is a perfect ending for a show that explored early and often the redemptive nature of second chances, and if this is creator David Milch's legacy, it is a flawless one.
June 14, 2019
This film remains a fitting and satisfying farewell.
June 12, 2019
Deadwood: The Movie is true to the show's original spirit and is as satisfying a conclusion as could be hoped for.
June 11, 2019
Deadwood is a story, not of this century, but also not quite out of the past.
June 7, 2019
Ironically, for a series in which so many the characters were motivated by selfishness, ambition, greed or unadulterated wickedness, this was a surprisingly warm, almost sentimental finale.
June 7, 2019
We've had our chance to view the resurrection and synthesis of Milch's genius, and once again Al's words are left ringing in our ears. Last time it was don't go, this time it's rest easy.
June 5, 2019
By the standards of Deadwood itself, the movie may not add much to the conversation. But by the standards of a revival, it's done exactly what it should.
June 5, 2019
It's Malcomson who runs away with Deadwood: The Movie.
June 5, 2019
Even with high hopes, the film surpasses what I could've hoped for, marking Deadwood, much like the town itself, as one for the history books.
