Ratings & Reviews

  • This wildly uneven mix of nasty and primarily a time-waster, trotting out clichéd misadventure tropes and predictable zigzags in a manner neither terribly funny nor suspenseful. show more

  • Director Nash Edgerton never really sinks his teeth into the delectable darkness of his hero’s nemeses, struggling to maintain the right acidic tone. show more

  • A sometimes amusing, sometimes draggy and overstuffed affair that always relies on its talent-rich cast to carry the day. show more
