3 of 5

“..the action is kinetic enough to keep us entertained..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..movies don't get any worse than Charlie Countryman..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..is slickly made, but its unfocused pop culture expressivism has a lingering side effect of emptiness - it's so earnest about being grand and gritty in equal measure it fails at both..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..Fredrik Bond's direction and Matt Drake's screenplay deliver a charisma-free trip into a world of gratuitous violence, contrivances and tedium...”
by John Anderson [Variety]
“..fanciful crime-drama romance that gratifyingly eschews strict genre classification..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : F

“..a pastiche of bad film cliches and scenes devoid of any real conflict or character development..”
