Eight for Silver had its premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last January and the reception has been good so far, currently ranking at 75% (Fresh) on Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer.
Read what the critics have to say about the horror film and Boyd’s performance as John McBride:
Holbrook is no stranger to genre films, channeling the same charisma he showcased in Logan and The Predator while layering in the sort of brooding intensity that made him so watchable during the first two seasons of Narcos.
Total Film (3/5 stars)
Part of Ellis’ evocative success is in his casting; Petrie, Holbrook and Kelly Reilly (as the torn wife of Laurent) are unexpected deployment and bring a certain gravitas to proceedings […] and while Holbrook’s usual drawling swagger is tempered, his dexterity with a gun and latent family sorrow leans into the Narcos persona that made him a star.
Holbrook (Two/One) is a solid presence, although the American actor never quite fits into this so-called French fold either.
