Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Big Hit is nothing more, or less, than a big goof."
‑ Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times
"In its non-A-list way, The Big Hit is the most successful attempt yet to transfer the Hong Kong action movie to Hollywood."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"The script, by rookie writer Ben Ramsey, is among the most disgraceful screenplays ever to be produced by a major studio."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"If you often find yourself defending the types of movies offered by Jerry Bruckheimer and Joel Silver, here's an affably dumb little action/comedy that should easily hold your attention."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Unfortunately, despite a promising premise, the film never manages to be much more than an adolescent exercise in caricatures, so inappropriately broad in its humor that it almost makes Airplane look like a documentary."
‑ Wade Major, Boxoffice Magazine
"...crude and bloody but effective action comedy..."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Score it big-time inane but a load of fun."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Big Hit should be titled The Big Miss. That?s a really bad pun, but it?s better than anything in this movie."
‑ Blake French,
"...a confused mess..."
‑ , Film Threat
"Muito estilo para pouco conte˙do."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"As low- intelligence entertainment goes, this film is very much a hit-and-miss affair."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The characters in these movies exist in a Twilight Zone where thousands of rounds of ammunition are fired, but no one ever gets shot unless the plot requires him to. The bullets have read the screenplay."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This frantic black comedy is one long obscure joke."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Aside from everything else it does, The Big Hit proves that any subject matter can be funny, in the right hands."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"...vacant and ill-conceived..."
‑ Danny Leigh, Sight and Sound
