    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Geena Davis and her director and husband, Renny Harlin, recover from their "Cutthroat Island" fiasco in grand style, and screenwriter Shane Black ("The Last Boy Scout") juggles jolts and jokes with a mad fervor that almost earns him his $4 million salary. show more

    Peter Stack San Francisco Chronicle

    A "nonstop thriller" that is also a nonstop dud. Underline the word "long" in the title. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The movie tries to juggle motherly love sentiment with wanna-be snappy ripostes with a violent streak that extends to threatening a grade-schooler with blinding and busted kneecaps. [11 Oct 1996, Pg.03.D] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I liked it in the same way I might like an arcade game: It holds your attention until you run out of quarters, and then you wander away without giving it another thought. show more

    TV Guide

    This is the kind of movie in which a dozen bad guys with an automatic weapon in each hand couldn't hit a lake if they were standing at the bottom of it, to steal the screenplay's best wiseacre remark. show more

    Barbara Shulgasser San Francisco Examiner

    One of the most blithely, giddily ridiculous movies to come along in ages. show more

    Empire

    Most of the fun comes from the Davis/Jackson pairing and some frantic action scenes, though problems include too many "meanigful" close-ups of cigarettes being lit and booming (appropriately) sound. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    The movie is a lot of fun if you don't think about it too much, the stuntwork should satisfy the genre fanatics in the crowd even though it doesn't set any new plateaus, and the rapport between Davis and Jackson is enough to keep the sticklers for realism in abeyance at least until the final credits roll. show more

    Entertainment Weekly

    Ultimately, however, Kiss is too ridiculous to engage us as a thriller yet too cringingly self-conscious to amuse us as camp. show more
