Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Seagal -- who turns 50 in a few weeks -- has been inactive for the past few years, and it shows."
‑ Don Irvine, Globe and Mail
"There's no story here. The film is all about the grisly, electric mayhem that ensues when these two guys hit the streets."
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Chronicle
"Very violent honest-cop corruption story."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"With a plot that can be roughly described as Serpico for people who never outgrew The A-Team, Seagal beats and bangs up Detroit single-handedly."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"It's rumored the actors were paid for this. You don't need to."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"In its low grade way, this blithely brutal cops and drugs thriller is an efficient hot wire entertainment."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"For those in search of action-filled escapist entertainment who are willing to jettison expectations of credibility into the nearest popcorn tub, Exit Wounds ... will do to pass time on an inclement day."
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
"Orin Boyd is a cop who "doesn't obey the rules" and although his boss considers him to be "one of the best", he must be transferred to one of the roughest precincts in town."
‑ Jordan Hiller, Bangitout.com
"Anyone who experienced Seagal's films when he was in his prime will know that he is to acting ability what Robin Cook is to personal magnetism."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"Steven Seagal is funnier by accident than most comedians are on purpose."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"The movie's just an excuse for the entire cast to point guns at each other before engaging in verbal or actual smackery."
‑ Norman Wilner, Toronto Star
"In fairness, the movie is more or less competent for being what it is. Of course, I could say the same of most brick walls -- but I'd hardly recommend that you pay eight bucks to sit in front of one for two hours."
‑ Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz
"...a refreshingly action-packed film that's distractingly enjoyable."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The film does exhibit a major problem typical of book adaptations; it's overburdened with plot and supporting characters."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"Seagal is...just as quiet, just as tough, just as slow and methodical, and just as weird as ever."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
