Some of the gags are funny, some are stale, and some are stale but still funny.

Black Out is just energetic and smartly written enough to make up for its obvious lack of originality.

Oregonian

Packed with colorful characters and gnarly plot twists, Arne Toonen's movie is a stylish, bloody romp.

Black Out will pass the time, but the people who like The Hangover III and wish it had more ultraviolence are probably the key demographic.

A tasting menu of hard-man predicaments that never offer more than a pale introduction to the innocent mark flailing at their center.

In terms of character and plot, not one element of the intended wild ride escapes self-consciousness or becomes the least bit involving.

The Dissolve

Black Out strains to shock and offend, but at this point, 20 years after Pulp Fiction, its conception of transgression is so familiar and toothless that it borders on quaint.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A self-aware, borderline self-reflexive action-comedy from the Netherlands, Arne Toonen's Black Out is derivative in a way that undermines its wry sense of self.

Slant Magazine

The film's references to other stylistic touchstones, while thematically apt, rarely carry any sort of critical inquiry, as if Toonen was more interested in homage for the sake of homage than as a means of contextualizing his worldview.
