22 Bullets Reviews

September 9, 2010
As violent as this mob thriller is, it also has a terrific sense of its central characters, focussing on strong emotions and moral decisions. And even though it's overcomplicated, the result is a sleek and very classy.

Without a compelling plot to hold our attention, this only amounts to an impressively bloody bullet-a-thon: 22 seems a very conservative estimate...
September 7, 2010
An unremarkable French thriller that feels like a Seventies Charles Bronson effort.

When the chief baddie both stutters and slaughters puppies, you know you're in trouble.

A stylish but desperately uneven French thriller that's clearly trying to be the next Godfather. Alas, it never comes close.
September 2, 2010
A generic, derivative gangster yarn.

Its many memorable characters, adrenalin-charged action sequences and heart-stopping car chases make for a guilty pleasure.

22 Bullets is neatly acted, nicely made and boasts complex characters that have depth.

An uneven stew of character development, violence and sub-Top Gear car chases. Disappointing.

There are few surprises but the blood-spattered action is handled with aplomb and Reno manages to keep a straight face when obliged to deliver the occasional lecture on morality.

In the end 22 Bullets fails to live up to its potential by descending into a series of 'hits' that, whilst they carry a perverse level of justice that is satisfying on one level, end up diluting the film's sense of character and pathos.
