Critic Reviews for John Henry

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

It never quite reaches its ambitious heights. It wants to be something, but it's kinda just a cheesy B-genre movie.

January 24, 2020 | Full Review…

"John Henry" is a lead-footed revenge thriller that lands with all the subtlety of the mighty steel-driving man's sledgehammer.

January 23, 2020 | Full Review…

A thug-life thriller so frequently preposterous that it almost resembles a parody.

January 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Crews is an actor with enough charisma and range to carry either gritty genre adventures or more cartoony showdowns; but Forbes' tonal uncertainty and a stiff script leave him stranded here...

January 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Flashes of craft can't make up for the director's easy default to gore over story.

Top Critic

A loud, aimless 97-minute exercise in futility with the subtlety of a sledge hammer against the head.
