Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Triumphalism is avoided, but the Seals' macho talk and a brutal fight between the two competitors for leadership of the assault team strike a false note."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"In the cinema it feels promoted beyond its capabilities."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"It's a workmanlike account of events that acted as a sort of universal closure for a gung-ho America which convinced itself that you really could wage a war against terrorism."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"Code Name: Geronimo is a film whose defects are entirely balanced by its positive aspects."
‑ Paul Fairclough, Little White Lies
"The film like the operation is efficient, well-co-ordinated, dead-eyed."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"The lead-up is hokey and unconvincing, as the filmmakers strain to inscribe personality on a cast of ciphers through hackneyed backstories and substantial guesswork."
‑ Chris Buckle, The Skinny
"As a thriller, it is cack-handed and boring, and as a drama it is badly acted and utterly incurious about what it was really like to be one of the soldiers who took part - relying abjectly on cliches."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"A serviceable action thriller elevated by the presence of William Fichtner as a CIA agent leading the manhunt."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"A smug national revenger ..."
‑ Paul M. Bradshaw, Total Film
