August 28, 2019
Killerman takes its influences and synthesizes them into an increasing rare thing: a movie that doesn't aspire to any greater heights than where it lands: squarely in the middle of the August dumping ground.

July 24, 2019
Without the interesting character work or genuine misanthropy of those films, the grittiness of this Liam Hemsworth-vehicle just isn't that convincing.
August 18, 2019
Malik Baderman's Killerman was perhaps not the best use of two hours of my time.
December 10, 2019
Killerman is the story of how an antihero is created, but without the mysticism or emotion of his cousin by profession, John Wick. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 28, 2019
A movie made by men to entice other men aching for those manly outdated movies "they don't make anymore," where distorted alpha masculinity was solely portrayed through vicious violence, gratuitous sex, and impenetrable coldness.
August 23, 2019
Liam Hemsworth holds his own in this long, lead-footed amnesiac money-launderer thriller with a very silly title.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 6, 2019
It has a few potent moments, but this violent, vulgar crime drama doesn't use its amnesia theme for any kind of creative storytelling or character development; it's just too long and too predictable.

July 22, 2019
The gritty pic's aesthetic scratches an itch for lovers of '70s/'80s urban grime. But atmosphere and attitude overwhelm story here, and trotting out old tropes like amnesia doesn't help.
September 4, 2019
As it stands, KILLERMAN is built on a pillar of clichés. Worse, it generally fails to utilize the talents of those involved.
August 30, 2019
Bits with killer dogs, a machete and a late-inning plot revelation do little to recoup what was lost, and what could have been a tight crime thriller drags to the nearly two-hour mark.

August 30, 2019
There's a visceral excitement to some of the gritty action sequences, although the screenplay suffers from derivative dialogue and strains credibility at every turn.
August 29, 2019
It's all pretty simple (albeit wildly convoluted). That's no excuse for how simplistic it all is.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 29, 2019
Killerman is one of those movies where the characters are perpetually in a crisis state, so they yell rather than converse. If you removed all the dialogue that is shouted, the film would probably be an hour shorter.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 29, 2019
A thoroughly mediocre slice of big-city criminality and shady doings, unredeemed by its two capable stars.

January 19, 2020
Killerman has a few twists up its sleeve, the type of over-the-top nonsense that's sincerely entertaining.
July 22, 2019
An exhilarating, audacious crime thriller, provided you go along with the ride.
August 29, 2019
Thanks to Bader's clever plotting and fruity dialogue - as well as strong supporting players - this grimy picture climaxes more satisfyingly than expected.
August 29, 2019
Writer-director Malik Bader recalls '70s crime dramas in his brutal thriller about a memory-impaired money launderer pursued by dirty cops.
January 6, 2020
Nothing is especially new here, but Hemsworth is sympathetic, oddly cast or not, and the villains are so odious in their smiling arrogance that I wanted to see them punished.
