All Critics (5)

So bad that it makes Seagal's other films look like the combined efforts of Frank Capra and Billy Wilder.

As for Seagal, he seems to have gotten so large that stunt doubles are needed for some of the more complicated fight sequences.

A calamitous little piece without an insinuation of plot. one of the worst things Seagal has done in ages

Audience Reviews for The Foreigner

Seagal was beyond it at this point (and still is) but this was actually a decent movie. Less on action than his usual fare and more on dialogue this is a very mysterious movie that got panned by even his biggest fans. He's done a lot better, true, but he's also done worse. How much can you really expect from him at this point?

This action movie was absolutely worst. Bad acting, bad accents, lukewarm action scenes linked together with endless meangless plot twists.

Steven Vincent Gee

Super Reviewer

Yeah I liked the action when it happened, but there really wasn't any. It almost tried to be a smart thriller and anyone who thinks Seagal and smart should be used in the same sentence particularly when describing a movie probably shouldn't be allowed to leave there house ever. As much as I love Seagal, and I do, this is a waste of time.
