Brian Tallerico A cheapo Seven knock-off that one would be tempted to suggest is beneath the talents of everyone involved, but they knew what they were getting into when they read it. Rated: 1/4 Dec 22, 2017 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times In its own cheesy and entertaining way, Hangman kept me guessing throughout. Rated: 3/4 Dec 22, 2017 Full Review Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times With a dirge-like pace that provides ample opportunity to figure it all out well ahead of the protagonists, you keep wishing somebody would buy a vowel to hurry things along. Dec 21, 2017 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review Lord save me from screenwriters who don't know how to end their movies with dignity. May 21, 2020 Full Review Sarah Cartland Caution Spoilers Watch in the right frame of mind and "Hangman" is occasionally diverting; you may well enjoy spotting the cliches and tropes. But the story is hackneyed and the final twist one that will make you sigh rather than scream. Rated: 2/5 Jan 19, 2019 Full Review Tom Santilli ...the these actors very little to work with and makes this film laughably cheesy and cliched at times. Rated: D Aug 14, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

El H Take every cliche you have ever seen in every detective/cop film, mix in a really bad story and some terrible overacting and top it off with a ridiculous ending and you have just wasted over 2 hours of your life... Did someone actually read this script and approve a multi-million dollar budget to get this movie made (I assume that much money, but judging by the quality, maybe not)? Insane... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/17/24 Full Review Doktor D Der Versuch, mehreren gutbesetzten Charaktären in nur 130min Tiefgang zu verleihen, misslingt grandios. Der Frust über das schlechte Drehbuch wird jedoch durch den Ärger über die deutsche Synchronisation überlagert. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review LAURA M I really enjoyed this movie, don't believe all the negative reviews.... yes some acting was a bit 'wooden'. But there was some intense scenes, good story line. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Jamie K I thought it was cool. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review Jill C This movie is so ridiculous it is laughable. Why would Al Pacino even consider it? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/01/23 Full Review A D The film is just a cliche. Nothing but a cliche. And Al Pacino is definitely worn out. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/20/22 Full Review Read all reviews
