Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Muddled cop thriller The Son of No One has a top-drawer cast and a bottom-drawer script."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"A laughable police melodrama."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"...yet another ineffective endeavor from a curiously incompetent filmmaker..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A film disaster with more loose ends than granny's wig."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"a high pitched melodrama"
‑ Bill Gibron,
"Life is a struggle, the new film "The Son of No One" makes that explicitly clear. But so is moviemaking, and unfortunately the toil is all too evident in writer-director Dito Montiel's messy, logic-strained third feature."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
""The Son of No One" self-destructs in a ludicrous, ineptly directed anticlimactic rooftop showdown in which bodies pile up, and nothing makes a shred of sense."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
""The Son of No One" is terrible, which is really a shame, because it's clearly so heartfelt and sincere."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Montiel constantly over-directs and over-edits, underlining certain points that have already been made clear. It's gritty and moody, but with little dramatic effect."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"A complex, unpredictable and exhilarating crime thriller that's just as suspenseful and captivating as The Departed."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"It just feels like a mess."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Something is lacking in the dramatic equation."
‑ John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"The sort of movie Channing Tatum made BEFORE "Magic Mike" and "Jump Street.""
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"The Son of No One makes me feel like a teacher whose student has very obviously plagiarized their final paper of the semester."
‑ Grae Drake,
"It's messy when it needs to be engaging; choppy when it needs to draw us in."
‑ Brian Tallerico,
