Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Blankman plays it light and silly but not so broadly that the movie collapses into chaos."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Sort of inspired, but really lame, superhero premise."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Damon Wayans loses credibility in 90 minute movie shocker!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"The title Blankman should be warning enough: There's nothing here."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"This isn't the worst superhero parody ever created, it's just one of them."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Aims for the most simplistic sort of slapstick ... and fails even at that."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Wayans's attempt to take a bite out of crime doesn't really work. In fact, he's shooting a blank."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Blankman's use of the cheesy effects from the Batman TV show, including Polito trying to imitate The Penguin, was initially a good idea but the execution is simply horrible and this is what winds up ruining the film."
‑ Brant Bingamon, Austin Chronicle
"Some of this is mildly amusing but there is a mean spirit that undercuts the laughs and the violence is surprisingly harsh."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
