The Girl on the Mountain | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Things really fall off once Sconce tries to rev up the action in the final 15 minutes or so. The framing of the shots, the weird use of slow-motion, the jarring way it clashes with the rest of the movie. Nothing about the the “big” ending feels authentic Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2022 Full Review The Girl on the Mountain | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Brian Costello Common Sense Media This story of the bond that forms between a broken man living off the grid in the mountains and a young girl running away from an abusive household is unfortunately marred by plot holes and lapses in story logic. Rated: 2/5 Mar 21, 2022 Full Review The Girl on the Mountain | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Nathaniel Muir AIPT Strong performances from the two leads and a heartwarming premise. The movie becomes disjointed at times and has a tendency to become formulaic. Mar 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Sheila D I'm sorry, but I am surprised that people actually like this movie. It was slow, boring and a really lame story. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Cork B I get what they were going for here, and it is a pretty good premise. I liked the leads, especially the girl. But man is this dumb. Every person in this film makes incredibly dumb decisions. Like they all took dumb pills. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/09/24 Full Review Mike G Don’t waste your time !Way too slow for even the most patient viewer. I would say it’s a B movie, but it not even up that rating. Really bad acting across the board, which fits for the low budget movie that is. Just too many ridiculous things (props and camera work) to look past, I mean seriously the girl has been in the woods for over a week and her hair is perfectly washed. I actually bailed out about 45 minutes in, and I’m the one the typically sticks with some really bad movies. Too many other options for movies to waste your time on this one. Everyone involved in making this gets an F-. Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/25/24 Full Review Randy G The movie was way, way, way too slow paced. I kept waiting for something to happen, other than fishing, camping, and talking. Also the flashback scenes were kind of awkward, though I know what the writer/director was trying to portray. Also, how a musical conductor city boy could outsmart four good ole' boy country bumpkins in the woods was a bit of a stretch. Kind of Rambo meets Mr. Holland's Opus. It had its moments, but just didn't work for me overall. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Josh M Horrible acting not worth watching idk how in the F$#@ this even got good reviews. Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/10/24 Full Review Audience Member Decent until the ending. Lights left on the Suburban for how long as the foursome went "hunting"? What happened to the bodies? They just left them there? Disappointing ending. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
