Critic Reviews for The Guillotines

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (12)

  • The lack of rip-roaring martial arts or even a half-decent storyline will leave genre aficionados feeling short-changed.

    June 18, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The plot is of little importance - the spectacular action and gorgeous landscapes and costumes are what matter.

    June 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The blades fly as do the heads, but the movie remains disappointingly aground.

    June 13, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • The Guillotines expends most of its energy in its first 30 minutes, leaving the audience with roughly 90 minutes of soapy Qing Dynasty fan fiction.

    June 13, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Despite the multitude of cinematic tricks the prolific Andrew Lau has up his sleeve, the film is a disappointingly rote entry in the wuxia pantheon.

    June 13, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A historical action epic set during the Qing dynasty that amounts to a bait-and-switch for wuxia fans stoked for steel-meets-flesh mayhem.
