Review rate : D

“..this movie feels like such an extremely low-budget one and things don't get any more exciting than a couple of poorly filmed gunfights. Certainly nothing spectacular, surprising or exciting..”
by Marcello [JapanCinema.net]
“..it's a thoroughly average B-action-thriller that only has a solid cast to recommend it..”
by Gordon Sullivan [DVD Verdict]
“..is ultimately worth a look. It may suffer from a few major flaws, but it succeeds in being a pretty cool film with many little and a few big pleasures..”
by Zachary Leeman [Breitbart]
2 of 5

“..in this and many other respects 'The Courier' just comes off as lazy..”
by Daniel Hirshleifer [High-Def Digest]
1.5 of 5

“..in case the cruddiness of the feature film wasn't enough to convince viewers to stay away, The Courier throws in weak PQ and an underwhelming collection of bonus features to boot. Skip it..”
by Tyler Foster [DVD Talk]
