Eddie Goldberger New York Daily News It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. Rated: 1/5 Jul 30, 2015 Full Review Chris Packham Village Voice The film becomes a cascading-failure scenario that proceeds from Soumah's intention to bait-and-switch the audience, coupled with a lot of suboptimal acting and amateurish editing choices. Jul 28, 2015 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Film Journal International A neat little diversion filled with familiar faces, especially if you have a little thing for '90s genre movies. Jul 30, 2015 Full Review Zach Hollwedel Under the Radar Beyond redundant ... [with] weak acting accompanied by weak writing. Rated: 2/10 Jul 30, 2015 Full Review Nathanael Hood The Young Folks What could have been a smartly executed revenge drama gets thrown on its side in the last two minutes with an unnecessary, cringe-worthy twist ending... Rated: 7/10 Jul 27, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member The movie that begin with the end of the of the timeline, shows you the ending, and then jumps backwards is getting tiresome and overused, especially by films that do not use it effectively. The constant back and forth in time gives you the bends. Throw in a little Primal Fear ending done in a bad way, and you have a truly forgettable movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member 6 Ways to Die is a thriller that is all about the Mexican cartel and a drug lord that has taken everything from his childhood friend and now the friend is back to take back what he has taken time for Revenge. I am not sure what else to tell you about this flick it's not for all it has chapters 6 chapters like a book and they go back a week each. The movie has a Flight Club Feel to it. The movie is not for kids and its a one time watch only. The cast is good but the movie is low budget you can tell by the sound effects and the same gun shot scene used repeatedly. This one an easy pay day for all actors involved nothing special here. Give it a miss not suitable for kids Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review farah r A witty way of telling a crime story but the acting was terrible. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Review: This is another one of those over complicated movies, which goes back and forth in time, so you have to piece the whole movie together yourself. The director tried to piece together the whole story and the end, in a "Usual Suspects" type of way but I personally had lost complete interest by then. It keeps on going a week behind in time, so it just becomes a pain to follow. The acting wasn't bad from the whole cast and I did find the storyline quite intriguing at first, especially when you follow what Vinnie Jones is saying in the car, to all of the people that he sends out to ruin Sonny "Sundown" Garcia (Michael Rene Walton) life but I ended up getting annoyed with it. I won't go into much depth about the storyline because it's basically not worth it and I honestly didn't know what was happening by the end but I will say this, it's a revenge plot with John Doe (Vinnie Jones) sending out various people to take down, drug dealer, Sundown. When I saw Tom Sizemore and Vivica A. Fox in the cast, I thought it was going to be half decent but Sizemore only has one scene in the movie and Fox makes a brief appearance near the end, which didn't have that much to do with the plot. At the end of the day, it's yet another disappointing movie from Vinnie Jones and I've finally learnt to stay away from films with his name plastered all over the poster. Disappointing! Round-Up: This movie was written and directed by Nadeem Soumah, who brought you Searching For Angels in 2011, which also starred Vivica A. Fox. Personally I think he made a right mess of this film because the storyline was hard to follow and over complicated. He could have easily made it a straight forward movie, were the scenes flowed from one scene to the next but it seemed like he was trying to be clever, by making it go one week behind, after each dramatic moment. Anyway, it definitely gets the thumbs down from me and I won't be watching it again in a hurry. I recommend this movie to people who are into their crime/thrillers starring Vinnie Jones, Michael Rene Walton, Vivica A. Fox, Tom Sizemore, Bai Ling and Dominique Swain. 2/10 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member 6 Ways to Die has a clever way of storytelling but nothing much of substance to its story. It has straightforward message and action sequences. However, its ending is the biggest decision-maker. You will intensely love or hate the film after its mind-blowing conclusion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Overly complex and riddled with vain symbolisms. This is a prime example where less is more. The movie executes multiple perspectives and subplots to the point of exhaustion. It follows John Doe (Vinnie Jones) as he sets intricate plans for revenge by hiring six different conman or assassin. Each of them reveals a facet of the target, along with occasional flashback and branching story, all of which ultimately end in an uninspiring conclusion. With six hitmen following their own respective plot, this is basically six short stories woven together, but not in consistent fashion. It's not an intersecting story like Snatch or even Smokin' Aces, there are many perspectives and timelines, yet they don't mesh together that well. It even feels fragmented since each hitman has limited screen time, not enough to establish their character for overall continuity. Cinematography is done with too much focus on style, the movie repetitively pans over to the same shots of night club, flashback or slow motion gun shot. Prepare to see these scenes again and again throughout the movie as though it wants to be edgy so badly, instead it becomes tiresome later on. The cast is pretty presentable, action fans would be pleased to see the Vinnie Jones or Vivica A. Fox. The characters are made to cater flamboyant lifestyle with extravagant personalities and attractive ladies. This might appeal to viewer who like exaggerated hitman or noir style, although the movie could've worked better with lighter tone or more constructed plot. It tries to produce intense display of a revenge tale as it delves into different aspects of the target's life, yet it's gradually becoming shallower as it progresses. Furthermore, the ending feels forced, making it a needlessly complicated and boring spectacle. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
