What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Sheri Linden Hits the mark with thrills and spills.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Gaan kyk as skop en skiet jou ding is.
Ilan Preskovsky The film is nicely put together on a purely technical level – that opening scene really is impressively awful - but its storytelling is too scatter-shot and its tonal shifts way too extreme to recommend it as anything but a somewhat interesting failure.
Tomatometer American Assassin hits a few easy targets, but without enough style or wit to truly bring its characters to life -- or stand out in a crowded field of more compelling spy thrillers.
Staff evaluation Poorly written, violent thriller about cold-blooded revenge.
