    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Director John Stockwell (“Blue Crush”) knows how to make the best possible use of his star while adding a strong supporting cast, some pretty scenery and a taut mystery. Stockwell understands most of all that we don’t need Carano to talk; we need her to kick ass. show more

    It’s overlong, overplotted and crowded with a cast of “hey-it’s-that-guy!” C-listers (Luis Guzman, Danny Trejo), but the closed-quarters combat crackles with bone-shattering believability. And that’s really all that matters. show more

    Ms. Carano still has a lot to learn about acting, but she’s certainly the one you want around in case of a home invasion. show more

    Aside from being another rote addition to the revenge-film canon, John Stockwell's In The Blood is also a supreme waste of Gina Carano's talent. show more

    When you reach the critical point that you consider that Trejo, the star of such gems as “Zombie Hunter” and “Dead in Tombstone”, to be above this material, you know you’re in a rare category of awful. show more

    Carano deserves better: She’s a formidable physical performer, and the current state of the MMA film on the DTV circuit is strong enough to shame this wan, drama-clogged effort. show more

    Despite having a lead that can fend for herself, and a fun ensemble of co-stars, In the Blood runs dry. show more

    Martin Tsai Los Angeles Times

    Like a typical Hollywood action-thriller, though, the screenplay jeopardizes the film. The twists concocted by writers James Robert Johnston and Bennett Yellin are mostly predictable; and the ones you don't see coming are outlandish. show more

    Pulses are likely to remain level during In the Blood, a serviceable vehicle for MMA champ Gina Carano. show more

    Nick Schager Village Voice

    Carano’s badass-beauty charm notwithstanding, it’s a grim, formulaic saga in desperate need of some genuine B-movie fury and flair. show more

    I loved this movie! It's the perfect kick ass movie for both men and women. The main actress isn't the best at acting in some parts but she definitely makes up for it with AWESOME moves! It has a really good suspenseful story line. It's pretty believable too. Definitely worth watching. I have no idea why it got such a low rating but mine is a full five stars. You should never trust critics ratings anyway, they always say shitty movies are good and good movies are shitty.
