Strictly for viewers who don't want surprises, just a laundry list of buddyisms.
Rita Kempley - Washington Post
The filmic equivalent of a hate crime.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
The movie has a lot of laughs, its action sequences are thrilling, its surprises are startling, and it shows a real ingenuity in the ways by which it gets Willis into, and out of, trouble.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Dean Essner - Variety
Everything seems mechanical, forced and contrived.
Dennis Schwartz - Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Geoff Andrew - Time Out
A slick, big-budget exploitation movie that's preposterous, foul-mouthed and gratuitously violent, but also a great deal of fun.
Chuck O'Leary - Fantastica Daily
Emanuel Levy - EmanuelLevy.Com
Ludicrous but undeniably fun, hard-core action

Rob Blackwelder - SPLICEDWire
Tepid action fare, but it signals flashes of things to come from Willis and Wayans.

Kathleen Maher - Austin Chronicle
Delivers the goods for action fans and has some very funny moments -- but there's the nagging sense that it could have been better.
