      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Mother is a welcome opportunity to see Jennifer Lopez in action hero mode — albeit one that's frustratingly content to coast on genre clichés.

      Audience Consensus

      The Mother may not deserve Jennifer Lopez, but she still makes this pretty ordinary action movie worth watching.

      Cristian s Muy buena película de accion. Historia atrapante, no tan original pero muy bien contada. Se empatiza muy fácil con el personaje de Jennifer López al igual que con la hija. Tiene tintes noventeros con muchas explosiones, efectos prácticos y poco Cgi. En un momento (mas o menos por la mitad) tiene un bache en el que se vuelve un toque aburrida, no la arruina del todo pero hay que atravesar esa parte. Tal vez si fuera yendo al cine la dejaría en 3 estrellitas pero como film de streaming rinde con creces. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Eugenia C No solo es la acción si no que los diálogos tienen profundidad. Impresionante ver a Jennifer López en este tipo de personaje. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review J V Every movie is always Jlo playing Jlo. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Julian H Amazing thriller action movie!

      Rex Reed Observer This forgettable action thriller is thoroughly derivative. Rated: 1/4 May 22, 2023 Full Review Todd McCarthy Deadline Hollywood Daily Lopez and Caro seem very much in sync as they relate the sprawling tale in a disciplined manner that maintains interest and curiosity, if not high levels of downright excitement. May 15, 2023 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times From scene to scene, Lopez and Caro do fill these broad outlines with real feeling, bringing a personal touch to old pulp archetypes. May 15, 2023 Full Review Mini Anthikad-Chhibber The Hindu Niki Caro’s tale of an assassin coming out of retirement to keep her daughter out of the crosshairs of some nasty people is the best kind of lean, mean fighting machine Aug 27, 2023 Full Review Michael Cook KLRT-TV Jennifer Lopez makes, I think, a pretty good action star... This is sort of a generic action-flick that you may watch and forget about it about three minutes after seeing it. Rated: 5.5/10 Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Ruth Maramis FlixChatter Film Blog Lopez is fit enough to handle the action scenes, but she just can’t sell the ruthlessness of the character. Apparently, it took no less than three writers to come up with this clichéd drivel. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 6, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
