Hi-Lo is not only the name of the high-country flatlands where the story takes place, it is also a poker game, and that Western cliche is given a good spin, too." Stephen Holden of The New York Times said, "In its best moments the movie feels like an epic hybrid of Red River and The Last Picture Show."
"Hi Lo Country" ist kein spektakulärer Reisser, eher ein stiller Film, der wie ein ruhiger Fluss fliesst. Er lässt sich Zeit vor grandiosen Bildern des immer noch existierenden Mythos amerikanischer Westen (Kameramann Oliver Stapelton) seine mit Stärken und Schwächen versehenen Figuren vorzustellen.
Harrelson has provoked others as well, and he seems primed for a fall, but The Hi-Lo Country is a film out of balance. Memorable moments are found in abundance, and the film's period detail is impeccable, but Crudup's character is so underwritten and underplayed that his role as narrator and ostensible hero has minimal dramatic impact.

Instead, "The Hi-Lo Country" is reserved and even elegiac. It's about itself, rather than about its story. The voice-over narration insists on that: It stands outside and above the story, and elevates it with self-conscious prose. By the end, we could be looking at Greek tragedy. Maybe that's the idea.

HI-LO COUNTRY is based on a novel by acclaimed western author Max Evans. Woody Harrelson as Big Boy and Sam Elliott as Jim Ed turn in the two best performances in this artistically uneven movie. Harrelson is completely believable in the role of the wild Big Boy, who loves to take chances and stand up against Jim Ed’s authority.
