      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      An action thriller starring Mads Mikkelsen as the world's most dangerous assassin should be terrifically entertaining, but Polar proves it's possible to ruin anything if you try.

      Peter Rainer FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Grody to the max. Sep 17, 2019 Full Review Roxana Hadadi Pajiba Polar is an astonishingly flaccid film, a movie that prioritizes blood splatter and bouncing butts over literally all else, including plot and character development. Feb 7, 2019 Full Review Chris Vognar New York Times If it has any redeeming qualities, it chooses to keep them a secret. Jan 31, 2019 Full Review Dolores Quintana Dolores Quintana POLAR tells a somewhat familiar story with style, verve, and humor and the absolutely smashing presence and talent of the great Mads Mikkelsen. Dec 28, 2022 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast Read the synopsis of Polar... you would be mistaken for thinking you were watching John Wick. Polar is the polar opposite to John Wick. In that John Wick is a great film and Polar is a bit of a mess. Rated: 2/5 Nov 10, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies A movie that seems to relish the mindless bloodshed, gratuitous sex, and glaring objectification. It’s sold out on looking cool and blinding us with its ‘style’ but doesn’t consider its story or its characters. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Watched with a buddy of mine and we both thought movie was awesome! Plenty of violence, T&A, and a surprise twist at the end. Was a fun watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Fetti A bit too sexual for a bloody assassin movie and the characters are bland and forgettable, but it has all the senseless violence and blood that most people would watch this for in the first place. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Tomy J Just a fun action movie to be honest. Cant complain its good to pass the time if your bored Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review James T Matt Lucas is disappointing. The violence is sad.
