Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The John Woo school of the ballet of bullets gets a full dose of Sam Peckinpah under the steady hand of director Antoine Fuqua's finely framed tale of revenge."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Will serve as a suitable replacement when [Chow Yun Fat's] better films are already rented out for the weekend."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"Unfortunately, The Replacement Killers isn't a film by John Woo."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
"The ever-charismatic Chow will certainly have no trouble winning new fans with his English language debut."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"An unworthy vehicle for a great star like Chow Yun-fat."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Style over substance all the way, but at least it's not boring."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
"One cannot accuse Killers of possessing a kernel of intelligence, but it's still a stylish action film."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
"Fuqua...obviously knows a good thing when he sees one and lets Chow dominate The Replacement Killers so thoroughly that the movie's liabilities...slide by relatively painlessly."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"The Replacement Killers is not a very good film, but it is impossible to deny that it has a certain beauty."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"The most dispiriting thing about The Replacement Killers is that it proves Chow [Yun-Fat]'s charisma repressible."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"A fair action thriller is offered here but what a difference this movie would make from merely being fair to that of being a fist-full-of-frenzied fun. A mild recommendation at best."
‑ Frank Ochieng,
