The Husband doesn't like this at all, objecting to the gore. The Younger Son and I can't understand how we missed all the gore, because we just didn't see it. We like it just fine and think it's worth re-watching. It's a matter of perspective. Some of us are more sensitive to gore than others.
DVD Talk does not like it and concludes,
"The Burrowers" is determined to get somewhere profound with a strange brew of perspectives, but it rarely electrifies, making the promise of a sequel at the end of the film feel more like a threat.DVD Verdict says, "if you can get through some of the slower, character-building moments in the beginning, you will be rewarded with a fun creature romp." Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 70%.
