– The A.V. Club – Ignatiy VishnevetskyJackie’s back in town and it’s nice to see him in something that isn’t so campy. The Foreigner is actually at the other extreme — it’s serious to a fault.
– David Edelstein (Vulture)In terms of overall visceral impact, The Foreigner is perhaps not as satisfying as a John Wick or the aforementioned Payback because it’s a more serious, complex movie. Nevertheless, it’s well-made, nicely paced and accomplishes what we expect from this sort of film. – ReelViews – James BerardinelliNot much Chan martial arts wackiness, here, and the killer smile is nowhere to be seen – but he’s as effective as he’s ever been; each blow (and there ARE quite a bit) counts, and you really care for him and his motivation.
Brosnan is great as the suit with a shady past (and present?). Just a great thriller/actioner of the kind they don’t really make anymore. – yatzNot your typical Kung Fu flick but still an entertaining watch. – Reza Noorani (Times of India)
