August 2, 2019
At second glance, A Score to Settle reveals itself as a swarm of cliches that ring louder than bullets.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

A Score to Settle ends with lots of bullets but with very little bang.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
August 2, 2019
The dialogue is atrocious.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 1, 2019
The execution falls short thanks in part to the devolution from contemplative drama to unbridled shoot 'em up.
Full Review | Original Score: C
August 12, 2019
Suggests something that's just within reach, but isn't there yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.75/5
October 8, 2019
Uneven Nicolas Cage action movie; violence, drug use.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 8, 2019
Too often stumbles with its inconsistent and schlocky take on the geriatric revenge thriller movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Cage gives what he can to the low-budget endeavor, but director Shawn Ku can't shake the stiffness of the effort, which buries a few of its better ideas with crude filmmaking and lackluster casting.

August 2, 2019
Cage at least makes a little bit of an effort, but since the film gives him nothing to play off of, those efforts are mostly in vein and after a while, you find yourself hoping that Crazy Cage will finally kick in.
August 2, 2019
Eminently forgettable.
August 2, 2019
Starts out stupid, gets even stupider, and then it ends, which is one of the most satisfying things to be said about it.
August 1, 2019
Ku... struggles to match his star's surrender to a story that seems to have little idea where it's going.
August 1, 2019
Director Shawn Ku manages to capture a few moments that will make the latest Nic Cage supercut of the actor's bizarre on-screen moments. Otherwise this tale barely treads water, and all but sinks with its ridiculous third act twist.

Nicolas Cage has practically cornered the market on these sorts of assembly-line revenge thrillers, including this predictably lackluster entry
August 1, 2019
[The filmmakers] appear to believe that they've made a subversive kind of revenge story ... It's mostly, though, just a laughable bust.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 2, 2019
A Score to Settle falls more on the not-good column of the Cage ledger.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 2, 2019
Cage's eccentricity once had a certain perverse charm, but in a dreary potboiler like this it's merely tiresome.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 20, 2019
An entertaining and well-paced film, "A Score to Settle" is Nicolas Cage at his best - deeply intense with a little bit of crazy mixed in for good measure.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 4, 2019
Nicolas Cage chose the right amount of restraint in his portrayal of the unhappy, obsessed lead character in "A Score to Settle." But he has one almost over-the-top scene that will stay with you after the credits roll.
August 1, 2019
Without Cage, there'd be almost no reason to see the by-the-numbers revenge thriller "A Score to Settle." With him, the movie isn't just watchable, it's occasionally riveting.
