Consensus: It probably goes without saying that Exit Wounds is loaded with plotholes and bad dialogue. Critics also note that Seagal has aged rather badly.

Don Irvine
Globe and Mail

Seagal -- who turns 50 in a few weeks -- has been inactive for the past few years, and it shows.

There's no story here. The film is all about the grisly, electric mayhem that ensues when these two guys hit the streets.

Very violent honest-cop corruption story.

Entertainment Weekly

In its low grade way, this blithely brutal cops and drugs thriller is an efficient hot wire entertainment.

For those in search of action-filled escapist entertainment who are willing to jettison expectations of credibility into the nearest popcorn tub, Exit Wounds ... will do to pass time on an inclement day.

Jordan Hiller

Orin Boyd is a cop who "doesn't obey the rules" and although his boss considers him to be "one of the best", he must be transferred to one of the roughest precincts in town.

The movie's just an excuse for the entire cast to point guns at each other before engaging in verbal or actual smackery.

Reel Film Reviews

...a refreshingly action-packed film that's distractingly enjoyable.

Exit Wounds' action sequences are somewhat impractical and, though entertaining in a way, cannot salvage the film's sloppily-written story,… More

Rough movie, but the opening bridge explosion scene was filmed in my hometown of Calgary, so I had to check it out.

Seagal plays he usual style role of a renegade cop with no respect for authority. DMX is a gangster with whom Seagal teams up with to find out who has stolen… More

The best Steven Seagal film I ever saw since "Under Siege 2". Non-stop action and gotta hurt.

Doesn't stand out like it should in the overpopulated world of Seagal films and perhaps only got the audience and attention it got because it had the… More

It's not "Citizen Kane", but it's good fun if you need your action fix. I rather enjoyed it, personally.
