Review rate : B

“..this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : B

“..this is a very Irish, very McDonagh, very Gleeson production, with the requisite amount of cheerfully abrasive humor and mayhem..”
by Eric D. Snider [Film.com]
“..McDonagh's film eschews any pretense of social reality for cinematographic fancifulness and too-clever-by-half dialogue..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..a great gust of very funny fresh air. An impish and impudent black comedy that knows where it's going and how to get there..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]
