RogerEbert.com
A middle-aged bromance tucked inside a French crime thriller, a slick and brutal B-action picture that finds writer-director Edgar Marie channeling Nicolas Winding Refn channeling early Michael Mann. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
It’s a mildly interesting thriller — Paris through the eyes of a director who doesn’t know how to make its beauty menacing. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
Slickly executed with glossy, neon-drenched cinematography and a throbbing techno-music score, Paris Countdown sacrifices substance for stylishness, as has become the distressing tendency of so many recent crime dramas. But its fast pacing, compelling lead performances and frequent doses of action prevent boredom from settling in. Full Review
Peter Debruge
Variety
This been-there-done-that story marks a pretty banal debut for writer-director Alain Marie, who seems far more interested in aping Refn and early-career Michael Mann than in finding his own style. Full Review
Rachel Saltz
The New York Times
Mr. Marie, making his debut as a director, swathes their tale in a thick coat of style that teeters between cool and mannered. Full Review
