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]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
