Consensus: A remake that doesn't approach the standard of the original, Get Carter will likely leave viewers confused and unsatisfied. Also, reviews are mixed concerning Stallone's acting.

Sean P. Means

The flash cannot make up for the dullness of the script ... and Stallone's emotional immobility.

Lawrence Terenzi
Mr. Showbiz

David McKenna's script is a frayed string and a contextual nightmare, peppered with puzzling references to the first film in a lame attempt at homage.

Michael Dequina

Stylized visuals add some spice, but they cannot overcome the formulaic and obvious screenplay, which is of no help to a film that is structured as a mystery.

Carter, who goes to Seattle to hunt down his brother's killer, may have entered a labyrinth of evil, but his response to it ... is as hollow as it is monolithic.

Maybe it's all the rain and leaden skies, but instead of conjuring up the rueful mood it's after, the film mostly just plays dark, wet, and heavy.

Chuck O'Leary

The original Get Carter (1971) is better, but this is quite watchable as far as modern-era remakes go.

Bob Thomas
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

How does a numbing mishmash of a movie like this get made?

The result is Get Carter for dummies, the biggest ones being those who pay to see it. It's also an incoherent, irredeemable mess.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

Is it a zombie coming to alert us it's time to start shopping for a Halloween costume? No, it's just our old friend Sylvester Stallone, sleepwalking his way through a stillborn crime drama that belongs in a morgue, not in a movie theater.
