      Well-acted, but it's too derivative.

      Ruud T Great movie. One minor: as cop, you do never go to a shootout without a bulletproof vest. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/21/23 Full Review jordan m The runtime was short and the pacing was brisk enough that it never really had time to become a bad viewing experience. The opening scene set a level of quality that the rest of the movie never came close to meeting in large part thanks to some truly atrocious dialogue... listening to Diesel's monologue about how many fights he'd been in reminded me of a story I might've written in 4th grade when I idolized Stone Cold Steve Austin. Watching Seth fly an airplane was a highlight though, and I have never seen Malkovich put on a bad performance. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched this film becoz Malkovich and Diesel is in it. Whole genre looks classic but horrible plot and script. More like a low budget film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The only good thing is Vin Diesel being Vin Diesel and John Malkovich being John Malkovich. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty solid movie if you're a little stoned haha Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Quality comedic-action film that has lots of twists Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: B- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Damon Wise Empire Magazine Borrowing heavily from leftfield genre spin-offs like True Romance, it's no wonder this misfire was on the shelves for so long. Rated: 2/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Real gangsters often love gangster films, but it's a safe bet that Knockaround Guys won't be on their all-time hit list. Mar 21, 2003 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It might have been better served with only one director. Rated: B- Jan 4, 2018 Full Review Joel Siegel Good Morning America Even with Vin Diesel's help, Knockaround Guys got knocked around a few times too many.
