Cape Argus / The Star
Todd McCarthy quote iconRemake has lost essence of original.

Jim Judy quote iconAs it stands, it only serves to remind viewers of far better drug cartel-related movies such as Sicario. Not interesting or engaging enough to come in as the first place runner-up.

Tomatometer quote iconMiss Bala suggests Gina Rodriguez has a future as an action hero; unfortunately, it also demonstrates how hard it is to balance set pieces against a compelling story.
