Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The flash cannot make up for the dullness of the script ... and Stallone's emotional immobility."
‑ Sean Means,
"Maybe it's all the rain and leaden skies, but instead of conjuring up the rueful mood it's after, the film mostly just plays dark, wet, and heavy."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Stylized visuals add some spice, but they cannot overcome the formulaic and obvious screenplay, which is of no help to a film that is structured as a mystery."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Muito falatório e pouca ação."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Note to Stallone: Stop making movies!"
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Carter, who goes to Seattle to hunt down his brother's killer, may have entered a labyrinth of evil, but his response to it ... is as hollow as it is monolithic."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The result is Get Carter for dummies, the biggest ones being those who pay to see it. It's also an incoherent, irredeemable mess."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"The original Get Carter (1971) is better, but this is quite watchable as far as modern-era remakes go."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"A few gem scenes buried in the rubble."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Fraught with too many loose ends and a glaring lack of focus."
‑ Andrew Manning, Radio Free Entertainment
"How does a numbing mishmash of a movie like this get made?"
‑ Bob Thomas, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Isn't likely to satisfy either action buffs or the actor's fans."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Is it a zombie coming to alert us it's time to start shopping for a Halloween costume? No, it's just our old friend Sylvester Stallone, sleepwalking his way through a stillborn crime drama that belongs in a morgue, not in a movie theater."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Get Carter ultimately lacks the courage of its convictions: it can't stand to be thought of as the pulp it so clearly is."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"slow moving"
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
