    Dennis Quaid gives a career-highlight performance as a highly-driven, personable corn farmer. Zac Efron plays his rebellious stockcar driving son, who'd rather race than raise. It's all about Quaid's character and he creates a nuanced, dynamic performance. Other than one seemingly random seduction, the writing and direction are effective. This isn't a lofty drama with oversize emotions and overstated performances, but a quietly compelling portrait of a well-intentioned, but flawed father whose ego and ambition test his family's commitment.

    I read the content of this film is more drama thriller category would classify as a family adventure movie. Just because it is a family, not a family, and this is the adventure of the movie is very far away. Once watchable.

    At Any Price is a dramatic movie of a family..which extends to test the relationship between a father and son. Denis Quaid is brilliant overall and Zac Efron has also made his mark with this movie.

    And therein lies one of the film's most glaring problems. Perhaps that vilification of Big Agro will resonate with farm folk, but it's not the sort of thing that will have many city slickers -- even those who sympathize with the little guys on this issue -- exactly sitting on the edge of their theater seat.

    The audacious ending, though unjustified by what had come before, was clearly something mainstream Hollywood would not have tolerated. Yet the 90 minutes in between, a mass of symbols and improbabilities so great they provoke outright laughter, made me wonder whether aliens stole Bahrani’s brain.

    Bahrani is brilliant at small gestures and the way they can speak volumes, but in At Any Price he’s aiming for grand tragedy, and he doesn’t yet have the knack. The pacing of the final act is uncertain; the epic sweep doesn’t arrive.
