News & Interviews for The Corruptor
Critic Reviews for The Corruptor
You probably can't blame Chow for The Corruptor. No way he could outmaneuver the director and the writers. The only thing in The Corruptor more catastrophic than the car chases is the script.
It's rote baloney, trotting out every dead-stupid cop-movie cliche in the book and doing it colorlessly.
Take away all the flash and dazzle, and what you're left with in The Corruptor is a police procedural.
It surprises by taking us inside Chinatown, where we discover just how sinister and elaborate the relationships between the police and the businessmen can be.
Audience Reviews for The Corruptor
An explosive crime thriller. A gritty, stylish, gripping, unpredictable and unforgettable movie thrill-ride. Searing suspense and non-stop action fuel this outstanding and heart-pounding adrenaline-rush. An awesome movie. It's Serpico meets Hard-Boiled. Chow Yun-fat and Mark Wahlberg give powerful, emotionally complex and sensational performances. It's shocking, riveting and exhilarating all the way to it's devastating conclusion. This is James Foley's finest film. A full-throttle action-packed flick that delivers pure explosive energy
Insipid and forgettable attempt to imitate Hong Kong cime flicks.
Another of Chow Yun Fat's decent but unspectacular early forays into Hollywood, it has a nice gritty feel and an interesting culture clash backdrop. Not up to the standard of his HK films, but a creditable cop thriller.
