Critics Consensus

Stratton's action-thriller ambitions are roundly thwarted by a derivative story, misguided casting, and a low-budget feel underscored by unimpressive set pieces.

Critic Reviews for Stratton

An aggressively unimposing movie such as this might not be the worst time-waster. But it's still a time-waster.

Jan 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Solidly pro in overall packaging yet cliched, pedestrian and indistinct in specific contributions, this thriller never finds (let alone raises) its own pulse.

A stale espionage thriller that possesses all the pulse-pounding intrigue of waiting in line at the DMV.

Cooper, requisitely bearded, plays Stratton merely as a mildly sullen professional who goes about his business; there's little surface indication of the hurt and loneliness that must be driving this man at each step.

Jan 3, 2018 | Full Review…

West aims for a kind of Jason Bourne or Mission: Impossible feel, but he falls short in budget, star power and explosive spectacle.

[A] medium-budget, moderately silly action-thriller ...

Audience Reviews for Stratton

Simon West has a really odd choice for films and this is just about on par with the Nicolas Cage film Stolen. The first 30 minutes is so boring and the action scene that opens the film does not generate any interest. The film fails to deliver any real storyline and I'm amazed at the talent involved with this film, surely they should've known better.
