Ilan Preskovsky quote iconThe 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 quote iconAmerican 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.
