    Nice old-fashioned movie. Thoroughly enjoyed this western road trip. Good guys, bad guys, smart women, Texas in transition.

    Tom Hanks delivers another fantastic performance. The chemistry between he and the little girl is astounding, and the story is well told and well written. I just never knew that NEWS OF THE WORLD would be this warm and comfortable.

    Slow yes, but so worth the patience to watch this beautiful story!
  • Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
    Parts of the movie were 5-star worthy, parts were more 4-star, but Tom Hanks never disappoints, not even in a lousy movie. The young girl was excellent.

    Tom Hanks was his usual great self. Helena was a beautiful fresh new face. Both performances were wonderful. I wanted to love this movie but the production crew screwed the pooch. The scenes meandered, the locations were not believable (if you know Texas), and the almost continuous made for Hollywood bad guy attacks were just too much. Sad that the producers assumed the audience was not worth the effort to make this the classic movie it could have been. Big disappointment!

    Very touching movie. A long journey with healing for two main characters.

    Well. Modern sensibilities overlaid on civil war context. Tom Hanks is great. Helena Zengel also good. But a little cliche'd.
