Critic Reviews of "The River Wild"Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
The perfect high old time for audiences in the mood to be tossed into the spin cycle for a pulse-pounding thrill ride.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
O'Neill proves to be a squeamish screenwriter. He doesn't allow his villain to do anything truly unnerving until the story's nearly done.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Constructed from so many ideas, characters and situations recycled from other movies that all the way down the river I kept thinking: Been there. Done that.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
If watched from a mildly amused, forgiving distance, the movie has its enjoyable moments -- good and campy.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
The thriller framework is still familiar, but the results exhibit a welcome freshness.LarsenOnFilmFebruary 29, 2012
Another 1990s domestic parable chastising workaholic dads, The River Wild also functions as a gorgeous travelogue and a Meryl Streep action film.Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)December 11, 2007
A buff Streep vs. bad guy Bacon on a wild river journey in which good acting overcomes several cliches.Shadows on the WallSeptember 19, 2004
corny but grippingAbout.comAugust 15, 2003
Terrible "suspense" movie. Predictable and no action until the end.Hollywood BitchslapMarch 25, 2003
It looks like an action movie, sounds like an action movie, but there's a lot more going on here.Your Movies (cleveland.com)February 07, 2003
The title promises more than the film delivers.MovielineJanuary 09, 2002
[Streep's] role is ridiculous, and the scenes depicting her marital crisis play like a hokey prelude to the inevitable reconciliation.
