Assassin's Bullet Reviews

  • The cockeyed C-quality B movie, shot on location with a Balkan supporting cast and crew, mixes a precarious pileup of visual cliches with over-staged action sequences.

  • Mr. Slater valiantly tries to appear turned on by his leading lady's shimmying midsection, but he might as well be watching a performing dog for all the heat mustered between them.

    Jeannette Catsoulis — New York Times

  • Think the Bourne franchise meets the Bond franchise, without the wit or action.

    Scott Bowles — USA Today

  • Fans of incessant flashbacks and endless whooshing zooms into close-ups will find much to love about Assassin's Bullet; less satisfied, alas, will be those with a fondness for lucid plotting, compelling intrigue, and credible performances.

    Nick Schager — Village Voice

  • Much of this makes little sense, but it's hard to care.

    Dennis Harvey — Variety

  • Corny action scenes and borderline-hilarious direction by Isaac Florentine mark the film as an obvious straight-to-video item that somehow took a wrong turn into a movie theater.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • This psychologically tinged thriller about a mysterious female assassin won't erase memories of La Femma Nikita.

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • [A] dippy hodgepodge of hitman action, illogical romance and geopolitical commentary.

    Robert Abele — Los Angeles Times

  • The script and direction are equally inept, with a series of overwrought action sequences and ludicrous plot twists that come suspiciously close to parody.

    Todd Jorgenson —

  • What do belly dancers, wigs, shrinks, split personalities and secret ops sexpot mercenary mayhem have to do with a movie? Well, an awful lot it seems, in this CIA espionage freakout that makes waterboarding appear tame by comparison.

    Prairie Miller — Long Island Press

  • Why is Slater in this? Why are Sutherland and Spall? Why am I even watching it?

    Stephen Whitty — Newark Star-Ledger

  • In trying to pass off the obvious as some type of mystery, Assassin's Bullet repeatedly insults viewer intelligence until the whole effort transforms into unintentional camp.

    Brian Orndorf —

  • Assassin's Bullet feels like a shameless, dismal vanity project.

    Alison Willmore — AV Club

  • Isaac Florentine's film is maligned with gaping plot holes, terrible expository dialogue, and obvious moments of foreshadowing.
