Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Taken in a lighthearted spirit, it's all good fun, with well-handled if increasingly improbable action."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
""Big Game" isn't as witty as it thinks it is, rarely transcends the very movies it wants to knock, and its intentionally hamfisted approach isn't particularly endearing."
‑ Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
"It feels like one of those ideas that feels like it should have been done long ago... Big Game is big fun, a terrific genre film that once again shows that the Finns can make films of this nature that rival those from anywhere else in the world."
‑ Jason Gorber, Twitch
"A total blast with the potential to become a favorite of pre-teen boys the world over."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"A sparky romp that recalls the children's action movies of the 1980s - The Goonies, The Golden Child or Home Alone - this British-Finnish co-production knows what its audience wants: big bangs, big laughs and adults looking silly."
‑ Paul MacInnes, Guardian
"Even before Samuel L. Jackson shows up as President of the United States and braves the Finnish countryside, it's clear that "Big Game" will be a special kind of guilty pleasure."
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"Big Game is the movie young kids should watch with their parents before graduating to Die Hard."
‑ Matt Patches, IGN Movies
"Big Game, starring Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States, is a blast of spectacular, silly fun that is aware (and proud) of its own absurdity."
‑ Jordan Adler, We Got This Covered
"A fist-pumping old-meets-new school thrill ride that makes you feel like a PG-13-year-old again."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
