      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      With an uninspired plot and rote set pieces that are overshadowed by its star's physique, The Gunman proves a muddled misfire in the rapidly aging Over-50 Action Hero genre.

      Dwight Brown National Newspaper Publishers Association The Gunman doesn't shoot blanks, but it is never fully loaded. Mar 7, 2017 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald Part of the problem is the script's determination to drag some of Spain's most scenic spots into the action whether or not they suit the mood. Rated: 3/5 Apr 16, 2015 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald If you want a thriller about architecture, here is your thing. Gaudi with Guns, they could have called it. Rated: 3/5 Apr 16, 2015 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies ...a dull, emotionally inert, slog of an experience. Rated: 2/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Unfortunately, no matter how many beautiful locations are served up by the globetrotting plot, or how pumped-up Penn may look, the story is very familiar stuff, but without anything to set it apart. Rated: 2/4 Jun 9, 2022 Full Review David Walsh World Socialist Web Site It is largely a clichéd scaffolding for certain violent set pieces, which are interesting as formal exercises of a kind, but have no long-lasting emotional or any other kind of impact, except to further inure audiences to killing and brutality.

      chandankumar L You can choose this to watch for a good passing time and .. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Sunny C Its very interesting movie Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review P Adil s It was a great entertainment. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review KD I don't understand all the negative reviews at all. I thought it was pretty enjoyable. Not a ton of action for a movie called Gunman but the action it had was done well, and the acting was top tier. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Jelisije J An overly long predictable action film that I expected better from Sean Penn. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Michael H Sean Penn at his best. Great entertainment and action. Critics who don't like it seem to be the American-style critics who expect the world to be neat and easily understandable. This is a great watch.
