    Scott Bowles USA Today

    What snookered Slater (not to mention Donald Sutherland) into this film is a wonder, because there's not a genuine bone in it. Think the Bourne franchise meets the Bond franchise, without the wit or action. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The action sequences are strictly pro forma and -- despite the sleek killer's resemblance to the similarly lethal heroine of "La Femme Nikita" -- this dull effort lacks the excitement generated by any of its incarnations. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    Corny action scenes and borderline-hilarious direction by Isaac Florentine mark the film as an obvious straight-to-video item that somehow took a wrong turn into a movie theater. show more

    Nick Schager Village Voice

    Fans of incessant flashbacks and endless whooshing zooms into close-ups will find much to love about Assassin's Bullet; less satisfied, alas, will be those with a fondness for lucid plotting, compelling intrigue, and credible performances. show more

    Robert Abele Los Angeles Times

    Assassin's Bullet is strictly '90s-era pay-cable genre-rip-off nostalgia, ripe for ridicule. show more
