Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In terms of action, Wayans the director relies too much on slow-motion in shooting action scenes -- a tiresome habit that undercuts the potential excitement of some sequences."
‑ Brian Lowry, Variety
"Wayans isn't sure whether to send up Shaft and company or simply to remake the action thriller. The result is an embarrassing compromise."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Wayans the screenwriter is largely to blame for the film's shortcomings, but Wayans the director does a solid job."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Unfortunately, however, where I'm Gonna Git You Sucka was completely off the wall, A Low Down Dirty Shame is just off."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"So far, so hackneyed."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Here is a movie about guns. Take away the guns, and the movie would be about nothing much."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The comedy is hit-or-miss, while Wayans proves to be a huge fan of Hong Kong action flicks, ripping off a number of action sequences from them."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"I'm not sure what type of movie this is supposed to be or who its audience is, but it's a low down dirty shame that Wayans' talent is wasted on this film."
‑ Alison Macor, Austin Chronicle
"Mr. Wayans is an agreeable screen presence, but he makes a surprisingly bland action hero."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's easy -- far too easy -- to use the title of Keenen Ivory Wayans' latest movie as a description. Unfortunately, it's also accurate."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Question of the day: why is there such an appeal to brainlessness?"
‑ James Brundage, Filmcritic.com
