    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Paparazzi is for anyone who's ever wondered how good it would feel to knock down a photographer with his car and then back over him. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    First-time director Paul Abascal brings no style or personality to this B-movie exercise. Except for Farina, the actors go through the paces as if they too lack conviction in the proceedings. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    A throwback to the kind of '80s action flicks that had titles like "Adrenaline Force," is enlivened by a raft of celebrity cameos, including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance by Gibson. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    All this would be fine if the script by Forrest Smith had more wit and fewer clichés, or the direction by former makeup artist Abascal had more inventiveness. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    It doesn't take long for the film to devolve into a ludicrously far-fetched Celebrity Death Wish. show more
