  • Fine actors (Alison Steadman, Phil Davis) nudge our boy forward, yet the rehabilitation and race-against-time narratives prove fundamentally at odds: we're left watching two films cancelling each other out.

  • The closed-quarters combat crackles with bone-shattering believability. And that's really all that matters.

  • "In the Blood" is a dull piece of nonsense that makes one feel bad for straight-to-DVD staples like Treat Williams, Danny Trejo, and Luis Guzman.

  • Carano, a former mixed-martial artist, won't be vying for an Oscar any time soon but she can more than hold her own as an action star. She deserves a bigger canvas on which to show off her skills.

  • This isn't much more than a straight-forward, get-the-baddies action flick.

    Apr 4, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The jaw-drop factor that comes from seeing Carano's moves is often spoiled because of too much cutting or, in the case of the dance club sequence, excess strobing.

    A decent action film. Gina Carano's pretty cool here, as always. There's some sick action scenes here, but the story kind of drags in between them, and the movie does take awhile to get off the ground. Still though, not a bad film.

    A fun, intense and terrifically old-school action-thriller. A Taken style film with lots of hand to hand combat, gun-play, suspense and a riveting star performance by Gina Carano. Carano is sexy, strong and filled with energy. Their is way to few action films that have strong female leads and Gina Carano just might be one of those real bright female action stars that can fit the bill. It has a great cast involved. Luis Guzman is terrific. Amaury Nolasco is excellent.

    Entertaining Straight Up Action Flick with Influences from Taken. Good Action/Thriller Movie! In the Blood has nearly the same plot as the Liam Neeson thriller Taken but it is much easier to swallow. The difference between the two is that the earlier picture was a high-gloss Hollywood production while this one is shot more like a documentary. It is by no means perfect, but you at least feel like you've entered into a very dark and dangerous world. You can believe what you're seeing. Overall, this is a super-high action film with an amazing heroine one that doesn't stand around waiting to be saved by a man and I love that. Carano plays the real thing and action hero in every sense of the word. When her husband goes missing during their Caribbean vacation, a woman sets off on her own to take down the men she thinks are responsible.
