Atmospheric, capable thriller but feels shopworn and its production marred by TV-style shot selection and editing. Story of Indian reservation killing is chock-a-block with grim and squalid images we've seen in other stories with same old Hollywood virtue-signaling about awful white man's depredations. Two leads are adequate but nothing remarkable in the writing to lift or distinguish their characters. We've seen it before. Hunter/tracker Renner offers awkward exposition speech about his family tragedy (we know its coming, and it does not come seamlessly for the story). Scenes of brutality are fairly predictable, and so are the antagonists. For great take on murder on Indian reservation story check out Thunderheart.

Grim, generic thrillerReviewed byrrpjrVote: 5/10
There aren't many films that I'd specifically recommend to watch, but this is one of them.
I didn't know anything about when I went to watch it. I'm glad I didn't. It came as a fantastic surprise.
It's bleak and eerie. It has a little "Insomnia" mixed in with some "Jodie Foster/Clarice Starling" thrown into the mix. It's a little dark, suspenseful and interesting right through the reveal at the end.
The story, whilst nothing shocking in of itself, is realistic and believable. The reveal towards the end is satisfyingly on the money, and it tugs at the emotional strings to see very believable and well acted grief on the part of the family that suffered the loss. The acting was excellent and carried the drama very well. More crime thrillers should deliver like this did.
Just watch it - you'll be glad you did.
"Wind River" is a gripping murder mystery-thriller written and directedby Taylor Sheridan (Best Original Screenplay Oscar nominee for "Hell orHigh Water") starring Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and Graham Greene,featuring an unusually strong supporting cast that includes many fineNative American actors.
Renner and Olsen play a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service tracker and anFBI agent, respectively, attempting to solve the murder of a youngwoman whose body is discovered by Renner under mysterious circumstancesas he patrols the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming.
The film scrupulously avoids clichés and is tightly edited with nary awasted moment, yet never feels rushed or artificial in performance orplot. Everyone and everything is there for a reason, and best of all,the audience is given credit for being able to keep up and connect thedots.
The violence, which is absolutely necessary, is kept at a bare minimumas a narrative device, explaining and clarifying rather than assaultingthe senses.
Every character, even the most heinous, is portrayed as a fullydeveloped human being rather than as stereotype.
We learn how the Native American culture is victimized in a way thattakes us inside their world and their souls, but the journey isskillfully handled and never heavy handed.
The photography is perfectly rendered, celebrating the icy Wyomingscenery in a muted style consistent with the mood of the story.
Renner, Olsen and Greene are excellent and believable, but in no smallway this is an ensemble piece whose potency and effectiveness derivefrom the palpable passion and belief of everyone in front of and behindthe camera.
This is an engrossing story well worth your time and money, and kudosto everyone involved for having faith that a discerning audience willfind and appreciate it.
