ReviewSource USA Today
Review "An Unfinished Life" doesn't succumb to the emotional dumbing-down that has become the norm in movies. Poignant and well-acted, it offers heartfelt moments leavened by subtle humor.

Review The unfinished life in the title at first seems to refer to Einar's dead son. Then we realize the death has put Einar, Jean, Mitch and Griff all on hold. Until they deal with it, they can't get on with things. How they deal with it is not original, but it is sincere and the actors are convincing. I was not quite as ready for the solution involving the bear, not after seeing "Grizzly Man" and remembering Werner Herzog's scary narration: The "blank stare" of a bear, he says, reveals not wisdom but "only the half-bored interest in food." While it is reasonable for bears to want to be free, it may not be reasonable for humans to want to live close to free bears.

Review While "An Unfinished Life" never transcends its simple storyline to charter original ground, it's the kind of movie that you can't fault too terribly much, primarily because its heart seems to be in the right place. Though it's not the memorable swan song that the departing Weinstein brothers might have wished for upon leaving Miramax at year's end, An Unfinished Life is nevertheless an honorable one.

James Berardinelli's ReelViews's an opportunity to remember how, in the right circumstances, on-screen characters can touch our hearts.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times It's not often noted, but Redford plays anger well.
