Critic Reviews of "American Assassin"
ReelViewsSeptember 17, 2017
American Assassin is as generic an espionage thriller as you're likely to find.
RogerEbert.comSeptember 16, 2017
American Assassin is not what it pretends to be.
indieWireSeptember 15, 2017
Still, passive audiences seeking pure escapism will find the bare minimum of fast action and ass-kicking mandated by the movie's formula.
Chicago Sun-TimesSeptember 15, 2017
Sorry, but no sale.
San Diego ReaderSeptember 15, 2017
There's plenty of talk about American Sins in American Assassin, but none of it changes the fact that the bad guys want to do bad things and must be stopped, so there really isn't much point to all that chatter.
Seattle TimesSeptember 15, 2017
[Dylan] O'Brien is grimly focused as Rapp, but there isn't a lot of electricity in his performance. He gets the job done, but he's no Matt Damon or Daniel Craig. Their spy-guy shoes remain unfilled.
Film RacketSeptember 24, 2017
the fighting and firearms are not enough to make American Assassin more than a dumb diversion
Irish TimesSeptember 22, 2017
There are 15 more novels in the Mitch Rapp series. Who will save us from American Assassin 2?
Seven DaysSeptember 22, 2017
More than anything, though, the movie is just stupid. Which is sad, since it was directed by Michael Cuesta.
PajibaSeptember 22, 2017
With American Assassin, Michael Cuesta (Kill the Messenger) has made a movie where Michael Keaton bites Taylor Kitsch's ear off unspeakably boring.
The Young FolksSeptember 21, 2017
Weaving a tapestry of overused action thriller scenarios without even the courtesy of a slight variation, American Assassin is forgettable, even by the standards of the genre.
Austin ChronicleSeptember 21, 2017
Director Michael Cuesta adds little of notice to the proceedings.
