Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    While nothing in the movie - least of all the two main performances - is especially fresh or original, it does have a few decent gags and amusing moments.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Functional if thoroughly uninspired movie. Because it clings to the comedy-action template of "48 Hrs.," pic feels like it could have been made 15 years ago.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    In some ways, The Man plays like a sequel to some terrible movie that was mercifully destroyed before it was ever released.
