San Francisco Chronicle -
Rolling Stone -
You don't want to miss Depp in this movie -- he knocks it out of the park.
USA Today -
Rodriguez is such a visual stylist, and the violence is so cartoonish, that the flurry of whizzing bullets and growing pile of bodies is not as offensive as it might be.
Los Angeles Times -
Depp's performance reminds us that, yeah, it's only a movie -- just not a good one.
