Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The WWE's campaign to turn its brutes into box office deals another tepid hand with The Reunion."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Frequently ludicrous and cheerfully inept, Michael Pavone's action comedy does manage to eke out a few drops of slapdash charm."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Pro wrestler John Cena stars in a WWE film about estranged half-brothers compelled to work together to rescue a kidnap victim in this old-TV-style family adventure-drama."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"Cena handles rough stuff like a pro, and his poker-faced wisecracking isn't bad. But he probably shouldn't quit his day job."
‑ Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
"There's one thing to be said about WWE Studios -- they're consistent. Every one of their movies designed to showcase their stable of popular wrestling stars has been a critical and commercial disaster."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
""The Reunion" has no pretensions of originality, and maybe that's just fine."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"What's ironic about The Reunion is that its plot, though it revolves around a kidnapping set in Mexico, seems blind to current events."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"If John Cena wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, he might want to learn to smile. Or at least to pick better material than "The Reunion.""
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"A split personality action comedy that fails to please either impulse. The action is wan, the laughs hard to come by."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"You know what you're getting about five minutes into The Reunion: the kind of movie that trades brains in for guns, muscles, and breasts."
‑ Christopher Null,
