    Perrier's Bounty puts on a pretty good show: fast, foul, corny, strange. show more

    There's no one to root for but the loan shark, who makes an excellent point: It's no fun when somebody takes your cash and gives you nothing in return. show more

    If there's one defining characteristic among English criminals, it's that they apparently are a quirky lot. That, at least, is the conclusion one draws from the endless series of comically tinged British crime thrillers that have come down the pike during recent years, of which the mediocre Perrier's Bounty is the latest example. show more

    Loose, flinty, and a little in love with itself, Perrier’s Bounty struts the fine line of self-consciousness drawn by neo-gangster capers like "The Usual Suspects," "In Bruges" and "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels." show more

    A splendidly plotted if thematically unsurprising comedy. The pleasure comes not from fresh insights, but from a droll script and expertly timed performances. show more

    Perrier’s Bounty is all stock material, full of characters that deserve more than the cliched shootouts and showdowns that befall them. Even the movie’s most natural impulses seem to come from a can. show more

    A comedy that forgot to install the funny. show more

    There’s no doubting the energy, but without Colin Farrell’s fervour, or any novel spin, it’s no more than treading water from this gang. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    It takes more than a few good actors playing bad apples to sustain such familiar romps through regurgitated material. There’s no bounty to be plucked from Perrier’s Bounty. The treasure chest has long since been emptied. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    Proves a fast-paced and enjoyable if violent diversion that revels in its quirky characters, committed performances and involving twists. show more

    Getting pretty lukewarm reviews, and I agree with them. Not doing so hot at RottenTomatoes. Spectrum Culture pretty much sums it up nicely: http://spectrumculture.com/2010/05/perriers-bounty.html
