Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though an enthusiastic cast and a somewhat tacked-on feminist twist reduce the sour aftertaste, the tone isn't aggressive or witty enough to distinguish this from umpteen other Guy Ritchie knockoffs."
‑ Guy Lodge, Variety
"The packaging is attractive, but the contents are less than satisfying, thanks to some dodgy performances, a surfeit of unlikeable characters and a script that's both lazy and over familiar."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Makes you actively appreciate Guy Ritchie. Actively. Appreciate. Guy. Ritchie..."
‑ Adam Lee Davies, Little White Lies
"This is the kind of film that thinks it's feminist because the girls hit back..."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"A miserable mess of gangland cliches and narrative tangle that deserves to be dropped off the end of Southend pier, preferably attached to an anvil."
‑ Tom Seymour, Empire Magazine
"The film is smart, though not as smart as it thinks."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The leaden plot - involving a monochrome gang of hard nuts and their molls doing each other in for a briefcase of cash - leaves us with nothing under the wrapper."
‑ Henry Barnes, Guardian
