Critic Reviews for Momentum

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (4)

"Momentum" is a spectacularly generic action-thriller that, despite its sleekly shot and edited mayhem, lands with a giant thud.

October 16, 2015 | Full Review…

Momentum is just that - a whole lot of forward motion without much to back it up or a compelling destination.

October 15, 2015 | Rating: 1/4

Crammed ... with leaden dialogue and predictable plot turns.

October 14, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Mostly a bore.

October 13, 2015 | Full Review…

Fast-paced but vacuous thriller.

April 16, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

All in all, Momentum is one big disappointingly generic mess of a movie that does very little to generate anticipation or excitement, let alone a viewing recommendation.

April 1, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Momentum

½

A fairly standard heist film, Momentum delivers some good action but is completely predictable. After robbing a bank vault, former CIA agent Alex and her crew are betrayed by their client who proceeds to kill them off in order to recover a flash drive and clean up loose ends. Olga Kurylenko and James Purefoy lead the cast and give strong performances. But the script is poorly written, as it's extremely formulaic and full of clichés. Still, the fight scenes are well-choreographed and bring some excitement and suspense to the film. While Momentum is entertaining, it lacks anything original or compelling.
