Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Between explosions there is enough room left for only minimal character development."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"Ballistic is a generic blur of metallic blue and fireball orange set to the contrapuntal sounds of throbbing techno and eardrum-puncturing noise."
‑ Manohla Dargis, Los Angeles Times
"This explosion movie is a complete bomb."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"For all the sundered families, bereaved mothers and mourning spouses, there's not a shred of genuine feeling in the entire film."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A career low for both Liu and Banderas."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Director Wych Kaosayananda -- or Kaos, to you -- is stupendously inept, unable even to properly light a combat sequence."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"One of the worst movies of the year."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Plot holes galore, clichés, senseless violence, and an incoherent script to top it all off."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Sadistic: Gratuitous Vs. Arbitrary."
‑ Todd Gilchrist,
"The backyard battles you staged with your green plastic army men were more exciting and almost certainly made more sense."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"Before seeing this film I couldn't understand why the producers had given it a subtitle; afterward I realized Ecks vs. Sever was probably the full script."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Enough to make a critic go ballistic."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Banderas mopes through this hideous and unintelligible enterprise like a bloodhound with a hangover, while Liu elects to look cool in leather in lieu of a performance."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Como descrever um filme que se preocupa apenas com suas explosões, e não com o roteiro, com a direção, a edição ou as atuações? Já sei: é uma bomba!"
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Wanton gunfire and witless good guys saturate this sadly scripted waste of hard-earned movie money."
‑ Tyler Hanley, Palo Alto Weekly
