Critic Reviews for Manhunt
It's a dozen movies thrown into a blender, but Woo didn't hit 'puree' long enough.
It's the kind of cartoonish film where, no matter what the odds and how many bullets are flying at our heroes, they never get seriously injured. Everyone else dies.
At times, it approaches self-parody, but that's just [John] Woo having some much-needed fun. The man deserves it.
However much fun the film's high points may afford, there is also something faintly depressing about seeing a once-inventive filmmaker plunder his own legacy for easy props.
This film offers something that is never in sufficiently plentiful supply: fun.
Manhunt is a movie for the die-hard fans who've stuck it out with Woo over the last decade or so. If you're amped up for another all-out bullet ballet, it'll go down just fine. The rest of us, though, can expect to wince as often as we cheer.
