63
Rich with atmosphere but too similar to films ranging from "Children of Men" to "Doomsday" to carve out its own distinctive niche.
40
Brawny but brainless techno-twaddle.
38
The lackluster acting and horrendous dialogue don't help.
38
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The storyline is a sinkhole that swallows up any sense and suspense.
33
When martial arts star Michelle Yeoh shows up as a pious, butt-kicking nun, you have to wonder if Kassovitz isn't accidentally cribbing from Mel Brooks, too.
30
It's not a great action dust-up by any means.
25
When this Vin Diesel vehicle isn't pointlessly frenzied, it's narratively inert, wasting some decent production design, and a French-flavored cast primed for fun.
20
The plot makes absolutely no sense.
20
Wants to be three different films at one time but sadly never asks much from Diesel other than to grunt, stomp around, and reprise the role that made him a star.
10
The Hollywood Reporter
A towering heap of nihilistic nonsense that plays like a cornball "Children of God."
