A blandly gritty piece of late-August mayhem that's as forgettable as its generic title.
"Reprisal" is not a very good movie, but it leaves you with tantalizing hints that some people involved with it are capable of doing something much better.
"Reprisal" would have once filled out a lonely shelf at a Blockbuster, the ideal home for its sedate performances and visually hectic action.
If Bruce Willis isn't careful, he may soon be hit by a class-action lawsuit.
Seeing Bruce Willis in the movies these days is damn embarrassing.
Thoroughly uninspired and laughably incoherent, this low-budget parade of cops-and-robbers clichés is an embarrassment for all involved.
Dopey and dull.
"These people have been through enough," says a character in the film's final minutes, and you can't help but think he's talking about the audience.
An ordinary man does a lot of dumb things in order to hunt down a master criminal for no logical reason in Reprisal.
Through it all, Willis looks like he's late to cash his check.
Reprisal is at pains to profess its faith in the symbols of law and order, but it cannot fully repress its almost erotic longing for the unfettered violence of the terrorist.
Dull "action diva in winter" manhunt thriller, with Willis as second banana.
