Ricochet Reviews

July 25, 2018
"Ricochet" is genuinely scary, suspenseful and disturbing in the best sense.
June 19, 2017
An absurd urban thriller, with no street cred.
January 6, 2010
A taut, twisty urban suspenser powered by the spring-loaded performance of Denzel Washington in his first major action role, Ricochet has a nasty streak and a tendency toward implausible excess.
January 6, 2010
A brutally entertaining film.

Dynamite action. This is a good bet for a night with the lads. And weedy girlies can at least wake up every ten minutes when Denz takes his top off.

Mulcahy's slasher-thriller manages to be as entertaining as it is improbable and violent.

After a potent start this fizzles with a stupid ending, but John Lithgow's Earl Talbot Blake is one of the most sinister, most vicious, most unforgettable movie villains ever.

Every now and then a movie comes along that is so preposterous, so devoid of any reality or logic, you have to wonder how it got made.

Sick, sick, sick, sick, sick. And what's not sick is out-and-out preposterous.

Solid thriller. Lithgow is a great villain with real power over the hero. Lots of tension.
May 24, 2003
Spectacular, violent and wildly excessive urban actioner that may not be taking itself quite as seriously as first appears.

The screenplay, by Steven E. de Souza, contains many glib, obscene wisecracks, plus the misinformation that Anna Karenina was Tolstoy's first book.

As with other Silver-smithed projects, this one is almost frighteningly competent at bashing heads and pushing all the right buttons.
