Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    It's fast, light and funny and not top-heavy with special effects and epic-scale destruction.

  • 70

    Variety Joe Leydon

    Working from a formulaic script by Steven E. De Souza, Hark employs a variety of visual stratagems to keep the action fast and flashy.

  • 50

    The New York Times Lawrence Van Gelder

    Knock Off runs breathlessly over land and water in familiar comic book fashion, offering more action than sense and next to nothing in the way of suspense, humor or romance.
