Critic Reviews for Officer Down

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Really just an overstuffed story that comes off not as layered but rather as an unfocused jumble.

these former A-listers deserve a better film to ply their trade in than this sloppy thriller-by-numbers

The National (UAE)

It doesn't quite achieve its plan for a psychological breakdown, but the effort is appreciated, even in a feature as messy as this one.

Audience Reviews for Officer Down

The film wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. It kind of reminded me of movies like Street Kings and Dark Blue. I didn't like the style or structure of the film. Stephen Dorff did a great job here. James Woods also delivers solid supporting work here.

Way too run-of-the-mill to even attempt to stand on it's own...I feel like I have seen this movie about a million other times, it was just called something else.

A hard-boiled and riveting police thriller. It`s Dark Blue meets L.A Confidential. It packs more impact than from the barrel of a shotgun. A stylish, intense, multi-layered and character driven film that`s down, deep and fantastic. It`s heart-pounding and wickedly entertaining from start to finish. A solid story that`s packed with action, nail-biting suspense and also scores with a tremendous cast of stars who all deliver great performances, especially Stephen Dorff. Dorff is absolutely sensational, he gives his best performance in years, he shows a great amount of emotion, toughness and raw power. David Boreanaz is terrific. James Woods is excellent. Dominic Purcell is thrilling. Walton Goggins is wonderful. A tough, pistol-packing and engaging, edge of your seat action-packed thriller.
