REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's a tonal nightmare and Bay struggles with that balance from the very beginning of the film. Ultimately, he finds a groove and the film may win you over, but the journey to that point is as bumpy as a muscled arm..”
by Germain Lussier [SlashFilm]
“..is arguably too much of everything - everyone jabbers on incessantly, and the movie is in love with its own outrageousness..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..a good half-hour is spent in the desperate and supposedly hilarious clean-up of a crime scene, but the endless dumbness, cruelty and frantic reaction from Wahlberg, Mackie and Johnson begins to feel like purgatorial grind..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
