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.

The original Get Carter (1971) is better, but this is quite watchable as far as modern-era remakes go.
| Original Score: 6/10

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.

Get Carter ultimately lacks the courage of its convictions: it can't stand to be thought of as the pulp it so clearly is.

Fraught with too many loose ends and a glaring lack of focus.

If you strip the material of its ineffective level of performances, what we are left with is a concept that, at least at the core, is quite intriguing.

While the look of the film is very stylish and the actors, including veteran actor Michael Caine, are good, the story and characterizations are a bit thin.

The stylish murk seems to signal that everyone on the technical crew had his own agenda, each trying to outdo the others.

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

It's the insipid dialogue and inane direction that sets this film on a rocky path.

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.

This is a pointless B-film actioner, a remake of the gritty 1971 British noir classic directed by Mike Hodges.

If you should happen to get this Carter, just stamp it 'return to sender' and ship it back without delay.

For those just interested in getting a closer look at whatever the hell happened to Mickey Rourke's face -- this could be a keeper. But probably not.

This film is flat, boring and poorly made when it should have been just the opposite, and much of that blame lies squarely on Kay's shoulders.

Stallone's performance is unremarkable in every way, unless you count the disgusting veins protruding from his shoulders and arms.
