Critics Consensus: While admirably intelligent and well-cast, Don't Let Go suffers from a formulaic approach compounded by its uneven writing and an awkward tonal balance.

Violent thriller has great performances, lackluster plot.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Don't Let Go is a thriller with sci-fi elements about a teenage girl named Ashley (Storm Reid) and her uncle Jack (David Oyelowo), who somehow gain the ability to talk to each other during different moments in time after she and her parents are mysteriously murdered. Expect violence and death, with multiple views of the same awful incident unfolding in real time, as well as a gory crime scene and graphic photos. Blood spatters and pools, and there's gore on the back of one character's head after he's been shot. Characters are also shot on-screen (the camera usually but doesn't always cut away at the moment of impact), including a teen girl who cowers, terrified, in her bedroom before being killed. Viewers see her dead body, but her face is usually obscured, and there's no gore. Drugs are an element of the plot, though no one is shown using them. Characters drink in times of stress, and one is said to have a drinking/drug problem. Language isn't frequent but includes "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. A black family anchors this drama, and a black teen girl is the heroine, which is relatively rare for thrillers. Ashley is a strong, brave character, as is Jack, and they demonstrate great teamwork, but we don't get to know much about their lives before or after the movie's events, nor are other characters fleshed out.
