What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Adam Nayman Over-amped, under-thought, vulgar, mostly indefensible and frequently fun, it's a pungent piece of B-movie trash with self-reflexive flourishes that suggest Michael Haneke working under the influence of steroids and stupid pills.
James Berardinelli In principle, I'm all for balls-to-the-wall action films that serve up a fifth of graphic violence with an adrenaline chaser. There's an audience for them and they fill a niche. If well crafted, they can also be a lot of fun. 'Well crafted,' however, is not an accurate descriptor for The Condemned. Nor are 'well written,' 'well acted,' or (perhaps surprisingly) 'well paced.'
By combining the oft-tapped 'Dangerous Game' story and mixing that with the 'Survivor' angle and liberal heapings of WWE mentality, the film feels too predictable, worn, and fake to be taken seriously as an action pic and/or any sort of social commentary.
Tomatometer A morally ambiguous and mostly forgettable action film.
