Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconLiam Neeson isn’t necessarily a bad fit for the classic character, but Marlowe fails to make a case for itself as either a worthwhile franchise extension or a fun mystery in its own right.

CommonSenseMedia
Jeffrey Anderson quote iconViolence, drugs in slick, cynical private-eye story.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconDespite the cast, I just don’t see the film really catching on with audiences and thus the only remaining mystery will be whether anyone will try again and if it will be another half-century or so until the character reemerges
