  • With its recycled themes and muddled storyline generating a cascade of unanswered questions, the film is more about style than substance.

  • But the shot du jour (heard and seen daily in every corner of our deadly globe) comes from the bereft mother; her family’s vocational tradition skids to an awful conclusion.

    July 23, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's some promise in the central idea, but any audience investment it could have generated is done in by the performances either awkward or downright amateurish.

    September 5, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • As for Olmos, he has achieved more than most could have with an often cliched screenplay ("Homies are getting killed every day. It's sad." "Those are our f***en homeboys back there. Why don't you show a little respect?").

  • Sizemore's edgy, high-charged performance blasts through Splinter's aesthetic pretensions.

Audience Reviews for Splinter

    I like these gang movies cuz it's a fairly interesting world and a lot of good movies of the genre have been made in the past. I wanted to like this also but it came to be a letdown. Below average acting with a disasterous Tom Sizemore doesn't really help a fairly intereresting script. The cinematography was a positive thing with truly great animated opening credits. This one is easily forgotten. Could've been better.
