Critic Reviews

DeMonaco has further upped his game with the third installment by working closely with franchise cinematographer Jacques Jouffret to design rewardingly more complex action sequences and well-focused set pieces that are both efficiently executed and visually engaging.

Didn't Like
After three disturbingly violent films, this may be a concept that deserves to be purged.
