Metacritic Score

  • 20

    Variety Derek Elley

    There's an appalling amount of talent at waste up on the screen, starting with Jackson and Carlyle whose tall/short, silent/motormouth double act never clicks.

  • 10

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    A witless, gruesome barrage of jokey violence and lame trans-Atlantic humor, kept moving by the pointless, derivative kineticism of Mr. Yu's hyperactive cuts and splices.

  • 0

    Los Angeles Times Manohla Dargis

    An execrable mess that leaves no genre cliché unturned or human body or soul untrammeled.
