Dreyfuss sinks his teeth into his handful of scenes, while Bisset hits different but equally effective tones in her moments. The underrated Janssen, striking as ever, does her usual stellar work.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Nothing in the proceedings rings remotely true unless you've been weaned on a steady diet of soulful hit men movies.

Unfortunately the pace is so relaxed as to be meandering; and Jay Zaretsky's screenplay is cliché-packed...

"Asher" can move slowly at times, kind of like its main character, but you find yourself rooting for the old guy.

Dec 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The familiarity of its over-the-hill hit-man plot leaves 'Asher' of cable or streaming-service quality, but Perlman's formidable presence makes it watchable on those secondary venues.

You can appreciate the character-driven approach of this crime drama while also wishing the titular protagonist had a more compelling movie in which to inhabit.

Audience Reviews for Asher

I was so disappointed by Asher. I thought "Famke Janssen hooks up with Ron Perlman the retiring assassin? Phenomenal!" unfortunately, it was not so. Wasted good talent, not on terribleness, just on blandness.
