doesn't illuminate the world of the undercover agent or bring anything new to the table

Intense cop movie for adults.

April 29, 2009
One of the best films of 2002...
February 18, 2009
The stylish conviction of Carnahan and his never-better leads make this familiar yarn worth caring about.

April 9, 2008
As a director Carnahan definitely has the goods... Unfortunately the script is your basic renegade-cop narrative, with the usual hoo-ha about justice versus the law.

Carnahan shows flair and confidence.

If Carnahan keeps wrenching this material back an inch or two from cliché, it's only an inch or two.

Joe Carnahan's Narc is familiar stuff, but it is bracingly effective. There hasn't been a cop and robbers film this cold and harsh since the 1970's.

March 3, 2005
For a picture that's billed as fresh and bracing, this is a pretty formulaic scheme, which Carnahan attempts to jolt into life through jittery direction.

Narc est un film extrêmement conventionnel dans son histoire, mais brille dans sa réalisation, son atmosphère et son style.
| Original Score: B
January 15, 2005
Sometimes it seems a director tries to pack in as much harsh footage as an R-rating will allow for its own sake. That itself is a violent act. The audience is the victim.

This is a dark, depressing, excessively violent, profusely profane film, not for the squeamish or anyone who likes elevating entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
January 6, 2004
A showcase for two talented actors and [Joe] Carnahan's technical wizardry, Narc is welcome entry in a tired genre.

It's a triumph of style over substance, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

The director is helped in no small part by his leading men.

'Una verdadera recomendación que lamentablemente duró muy poco en pantalla, por lo que no se la pueden perder en video'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 26, 2003
Carnahan isn't breaking new ground, but he has administered an astoundingly visceral shot of adrenaline to the police-procedural genre.

June 11, 2003
A chokehold of a movie, grabbing us but not ultimately engaging us.
June 10, 2003
As two of the most unlikeliest of partners, Liotta and Patric manage to be a perfect match. . .
June 4, 2003
A câmera nervosa, a fotografia melancólica e as interpretações realistas de Liotta e Patric conferem a Narc uma intensidade que nada deixa a desejar com relação aos clássicos policiais dos anos 70.
| Original Score: 4/5
