The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Ray Conlogue
A shoot-'em-up for cynical times. Its only asset is Seagal himself, and frankly, he's is getting a bit past it.

The martial arts are well represented, the gentler arts -- like, for example, acting -- are not.

New York Post

By Jonathan Foreman
Has the cheesy, deadened feel of a straight-to-cable film.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Brilliantly named Half Past Dead -- or for Seagal pessimists: ''Totally Past His Prime.''

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
What we get, while rarely boring, is a succession of senseless scenes bathed in formula-thriller blue light, full of blazing Uzis, exploding helicopters and sentimental male bonding.

USA Today

By Mike Clark
Steven Seagal's acting style is so minimal that we can almost believe a script that tells us that his character's near-death experience left him flatlined for 22 minutes.

By Mick LaSalle
About as weak a movie as can be made without actively trying.

Baltimore Sun

Stupid. Illogical. Simplistic. Pandering. And those are its good points.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
It goes through the motions of an action thriller, but there is a deadness at its center, a feeling that no one connected with it loved what they were doing.
