Movie Reviews

  • the plot may be boilerplate in this female-driven revenge thriller, but Blake Lively sells it, playing an action hero who fights like a real person: badly
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • if you manage to sit through the cheesy, predictable thriller -- or if you have read the 2018 novel on which it is based, the first of the Stephanie Patrick Thrillers series by Mark Burnell -- is that there would otherwise be no story to tell
    1.5 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [The Washington Post ]
  • Blake Lively's steely heroine and a propulsive plot ensure you're never bored, but this is a generic thriller from a simpler time, bulked up by a single strong performance
    3 of 5 by James Dyer [Empire Magazine ]
  • Blake Lively's scenes with Jude Law are very watchable; The rapport between them allows the movie both to relax and pick up the pace. Morano puts together good fight scenes, robust stunt work and tasty car chases; it works perfectly well as a thriller
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • Blake Lively is beyond good in "The Rhythm Section". She is flat-out great. She's never been this good before; she kicks this superior thriller up an extra notch, to the point that it's not only worth seeing for the excitement and thrills, but for her
    4 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • "The Rhythm Section" places such a high premium on character and suffering, in addition to tense, realistic action, but fundamental missteps prevent it from being great
    Review rate : C+ by Charles Barfield [The Playlist ]
