Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A renter with some mileage on it."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Diverting but conventional thriller."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Formulaic but effective."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"Eddie Murphy has declared war on America's eardrums. His new film Metro, in which he plays a police hostage negotiator, must have been financed by a wrecking yard, with help from the stunt drivers guild."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Examiner
"For fans of Murphy or the action genre, Metro is A-okay mindless fun."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"By-the-numbers doesn't begin to describe how cliche-ridden Randy Feldman's script is."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
""moronic action film""
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Balancing the elements of comedy and drama are never easy and Metro, Eddie Murphy's latest flick, proves how easy it is to mistep."
‑ Leslie Rigoulot, Film Scouts
"Yet another 'buddy' or 'Odd Couple' cop movie that isn't particularly groundbreaking or memorable."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A gilded if gritty rehash of damn near every buddy-cop movie ever made."
‑ , E! Online
"The big action scenes are cleverly staged and Eddie Murphy is back on his game again, with a high-energy performance and crisp dialogue."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Another forgettable and clueless cut-up cop caper with Murphy in the middle of the misguided mayhem. Instantly generic and mindless to boot"
‑ Frank Ochieng,
"Far too long on action and far too short on laughs."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Metro isn't a movie. It's bumper cars."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"While the rest of Thomas Carter's movie is also pretty, it's distractingly stupid."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Philadelphia City Paper
