Critic Reviews for Bad Day for the Cut

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

A taut vengeance thriller that doesn't completely come together as one would hope but has enough solid entertainment value, well-directed visuals, and nasty twists and turns to justify a look.

Audience Reviews for Bad Day for the Cut

Vengeance Thrillers are still kickin', and Bad Day for the Cut is another hit for the genre. Not a marked improvement on anything, or a new way of doing the bit, just a well-acted, taut crime film that I enjoyed the time I spent with.
