Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Next Day Air is sort of bracing, though it isn't very good: Its total lack of dramatic and comic bearings, to say nothing of a point, keeps you wondering about the next fatality, in a half-interested way."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"An amusing tail of incompetent criminals."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Next Day Air is well-intentioned but ill-thought, an amateur work by a first time filmmaking team trying to make the kind of film they like to watch, but ignorant of what makes those kinds of films work."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Nearly every scene is a play on the perception that the accumulation of wealth will bring social validation and self-worth."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"It delivers neither laughs nor chills and offers no visuals more interesting than the Exit signs on the theater doors."
‑ Dan Lybarger, eFilmCritic.com
"There are no cops, not much farcical energy, and none of the satiric edge it would take to pull off the film's grim denouement."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"He may be a first-time feature director, but music video master Benny Boom clearly knows how to pull a midlevel movie together. That's harder than it sounds."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"[Director Benny Boom] keeps the proceedings competent in the face of a labyrinthine plot that begs for more so-called flair than it deserves."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"Based on modest expectations Next Day Air delivers just the entertainment package it promises -- namely, dumb laughs laced with violence -- and it kinda works."
‑ Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com
"Best to refuse this delivery"
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"I've seen much funnier films from Mike Epps."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Far from the worst of Taran tino knockoffs, Next Day Air takes the standard formula of dimwits chasing bags of drugs to the 'hood."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Updates the spirit of blaxploitation without feeling pressed to worship or satirize it."
‑ Aaron Hillis, GreenCine
"I admire Benny Boom's effort; he wanted to make a movie and did it. One can only hope his next venture in Hollywood will be more original and sharp."
‑ Clay Cane, BET.com
"Consistently unremarkable from its dullsville title on down."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
