    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    This noir mystery is murkier than it needs to be, through no fault of Stallone's. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A thuddingly dull remake of the 1971 crime drama starring Michael Caine. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The result is a throwaway story hidden beneath a messy jumble of weird camera angles, worthless editing tricks and an ill-placed, obnoxious score. show more

    Larry Terenzi Mr. Showbiz

    McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage. show more

    Should you get Carter? Sure - but make it the Michael Caine classic Warner Bros. is releasing on video next week. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Shot in shades of steely gray and streaked with near-constant rain, this gloomy revenge thriller is a sadistic cartoon. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    The film itself is a muddle, all rapid-fire step-edits and grainy, blue-filtered hokum. What is good is Stallone. show more

    The only fun is in watching Stallone square off against Alan Cumming and Mickey Rourke. show more

    If the film doesn't touch the original, it doesn't hit rock bottom, either. show more

    Well, it had it's high points and it's low points. I'm kind of betting that Micheal Caine's version was probably a whole lot more high octane. To me, just about "all" of Slyvester Stallone's movies over the past ten years have become somewhat predictably boring. But I would give him a B- for his effort in this one.
