More Info:
  • Jordan Mintzer

    By doubling down on a movie that yearns to be both introspective and bone-crunchingly cool, Wild Card overplays its hand.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    As usual, Statham gets a lot of mileage out of his droll, ever-present scowl, but as in “Heat,” the movie’s disparate narrative strands never really come together, and the climactic showdown feels pretty anticlimactic.

    Variety Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    There’s a modern noir story struggling to get out of Wild Card, just as there was in "Heat," and you can feel it every time Statham – a fine actor even when he’s not rearranging people’s skeletal structure – has to sit down, stare into yet another tumbler of vodka rocks and contemplate the miserable life sentence of his habit.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    It’s no secret that Jason Statham demonstrates remarkable flair when it comes to bone-crunching action-movie mayhem, but he deserves special props for making some of the more outrageous flights of macho fantasy in Wild Card seem credible.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Josh Modell

    A largely forgettable lark, notable more for its slight diversions from action-movie norms than anything else.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Somewhat less than the sum of its many amusing or at least unusual parts. But with Goldman, West and all these classy co-stars, he’s at least kicking butt in better company these days.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Trying to find a middle ground between an action packed Statham vehicle, a '70s style mood piece, and a '90s era, character-actor packed crime tale, Wild Card is not surprisingly an unsuccessful marriage of those ill-fitting genres.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Although the film has little of the smarts and the sizzle of the best of Goldman, it does have a splash of the writer's sense of irony.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Andrew Lapin

    The film doesn’t ask its stars for much, and they deliver.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Overstuffed and distractible, this episodic redo feels like a couple episodes of some Showtime series stitched into a feature.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A better cast this time around — Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Sofía Vergara and Max Casella, with cameos by Jason Alexander, Stanley Tucci and Hope Davis — tries to breathe life into Goldman’s cliché-ridden plot.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    The action-movie pyrotechnics succeed only at reinforcing Simon West's macho bona fides and condescendingly forcing Jason Statham back into his wheelhouse.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Slow-motion knockouts follow, with Mr. Statham as sure-fisted as ever, but the “Expendables” director Simon West can only summon dead air in between. Mr. Goldman’s slightly offbeat underworld is not very convincing, and Mr. Statham’s thick voice and inexpressive acting suggest brain fog rather than gritty blues.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A quirky re-boot of the old Burt Reynolds hashtag "Heat," this modest character vehicle for the lifeless, balding and incomprehensibly inarticulate Jason Statham is so bleak and moody it won’t be much of a lure to action fans.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Statham brings so little energy that the fight scenes are hardly more vivid than the gambling ones. His one-liners have no heart; his cynicism is no longer sharp.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    I really enjoyed listening to Statham talk. His fight scenes have their predictable, violent payoffs, but his rambling monologues are unexpectedly, gloriously entertaining. This film’s tagline should be “Come for the stabbing, stay for the gabbing!”

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Stanley Tucci, Hope Davis, Anne Heche, and Sofia Vergara all pop up in glorified cameos and give the movie more fizz than their roles require. Which begs the question: Why would they sign on for such thankless, bite-size roles?

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Wild Card, which keeps giving the Stath too much mannered hard-boiled dialogue for his own good, is a promising blend of components that don’t quite end up gelling.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Delivering boredom when it promises mayhem, Wild Card is a bad bet that doesn’t pay off for either the film’s makers or its audience.
