Entertainment Weekly
The only fun is in watching Stallone square off against Alan Cumming and Mickey Rourke.
50
Philadelphia Inquirer
A thuddingly dull remake of the 1971 crime drama starring Michael Caine.

Portland Oregonian
If the film doesn't touch the original, it doesn't hit rock bottom, either.

Mr. Showbiz
McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage.
40
Shot in shades of steely gray and streaked with near-constant rain, this gloomy revenge thriller is a sadistic cartoon.
40
Austin Chronicle
The film itself is a muddle, all rapid-fire step-edits and grainy, blue-filtered hokum. What is good is Stallone.
38
Boston Globe
A sodden-looking film.
25
San Francisco Chronicle
This noir mystery is murkier than it needs to be, through no fault of Stallone's.

New York Post
Should you get Carter? Sure - but make it the Michael Caine classic Warner Bros. is releasing on video next week.
12
New York Daily News
The result is a throwaway story hidden beneath a messy jumble of weird camera angles, worthless editing tricks and an ill-placed, obnoxious score.
