Critic Reviews of "Pay Back"Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 06, 2002
Demonstrates why Mel Gibson is a movie star: He can take mediocre material and through sheer willpower -- not to mention oodles of charm -- make it work.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
A higher class of thriller.Globe and MailMarch 22, 2002
It quickly slides into a Lethal Weapon without Danny Glover, complete with blowups and wisecracks, gratuitous torture scenes and Gibson in familiar form as the twinkling rascal who makes a virtue out of viciousness.Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
In the popcorn sense, it certainly delivers on mindless escapism. In the artistic sense, let's just say that Payback is a long way from Point Blank.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
It's undone not so much by the shadow of Lee Marvin falling heavily on it (which it does) as by the twin obstacles of big star image and, more to the point, excessive violence.Chicago TribuneJanuary 01, 2000
A mind-mangling disappointment, with a dopey sell-out ending.Calgary MoviesJune 21, 2007
A solid enough action comedy, albeit one that had a lot of potential to be wittier and darker.FulvueDrive-in.comMay 10, 2007
A tough, entertaining homage to the kind of gritty '70s crime film that long ago gave way to a slicker yet tamer form of action movie ... Both the studio's cut and Helgeland's cut work about equally well.Ain't It Cool Movie ReviewsJune 25, 2005
This is the seediest studio picture I've seen since TO LIVE OR DIE IN LA. Even the theater floor feels stickier while watching this thing unfold.Jam! MoviesApril 13, 2004
Payback has its moments and its thrills, but the payoff just isn't there.Film ThreatDecember 08, 2002
Payback is just Die Hard: Without a Soul.Cincinnati EnquirerOctober 15, 2002
The movie squanders its energy on morbid levels of grisly, kinky violence, much of it sexual.
