Isn't likely to satisfy either action buffs or the actor's fans.

[Stallone] has to wade through way too many scenes in which show-offy camera work turns him upside down or flashes lights at him or divides him up into three screens.

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

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

...not really a bad crime thriller so much as it is a routine one.

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

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

Stallone is so artificial, tanned and leathery you could replace his mouth with a zipper and sell him as a pocketbook.

Stallone's Jack Carter can't shut up -- and his sentimental ramblings, accompanied by facial twitches that are apparently meant to approximate acting, are stupefying.

Moves along with virtually no rhythm, no suspense, and no spark from the morose, goateed star.

Director Stephen Kay obviously spent an inordinate amount of time studying The Limey ... but he learned all the wrong lessons.

Once again, [Stallone] cops out on shadows and dimension.
Shawn Levy
January 1, 2000
It's three years since Sylvester Stallone has sprinkled his brand of fairy dust on America's movie screens, and judging by Get Carter, time hasn't been on his side.
Jim Judy
Screen It!
January 1, 2000
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.
