Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The closed-quarters combat crackles with bone-shattering believability. And that's really all that matters."
‑ John Semley, Globe and Mail
"Carano is an impressive woman, but she's no Meryl Streep; and even Streep couldn't make a movie this by-the-numbers look like anything more than it is: violence with interruptions."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Most of the dialogue consists of "Where is my husband?" And, for variety: "Tell me where my husband is!""
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"Saddled with a weirdo, disturbing ending. Still, there's still a certain ramshackle appeal to this starchy, Taken-meets-Turistas revenge flick, which could just as easily be titled Woman on Fire."
‑ Brent Simon,
""In the Blood" is a dull piece of nonsense that makes one feel bad for straight-to-DVD staples like Treat Williams, Danny Trejo, and Luis Guzman."
‑ Brian Tallerico,
"This isn't much more than a straight-forward, get-the-baddies action flick."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"In the Blood is generic B-movie fare, bloody and, alas, increasingly dumb."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"What starts as a mystery involving shadowy gangsters on an unnamed tropical island turns into a sort of medical drama involving endless fights, torture, and gunfire."
‑ Jay Stone,
""In the Blood" will appeal to fans of "Taken" -- a lone warrior with a set of skills who tears apart a foreign lands to find a loved one. Justice is served, but at a very bloody price."
‑ Chase Whale, The Playlist
"Carano, a former mixed-martial artist, won't be vying for an Oscar any time soon but she can more than hold her own as an action star. She deserves a bigger canvas on which to show off her skills."
‑ Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"The jaw-drop factor that comes from seeing Carano's moves is often spoiled because of too much cutting or, in the case of the dance club sequence, excess strobing."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Variety
"There is an odd, even creepy, undercurrent in Ava's backstory that is both repellent and underdeveloped as an idea."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"I'm convinced Stockwell just sits around his Top Gun mansion reading scripts until he finds one containing the magical combination of cerulean water and two piece swimsuits."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Houston Press
"Whatever you do, don't ever, EVER go ziplining."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Go in knowing the film will deliver on butt-kicking Carano, but not much else and you'll be perfectly satisfied."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
