      James H I love a good action thriller — especially with a kick-ass female lead. Maggie Q is stunning, literally and figuratively. #TheProtege Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/19/21 Full Review Timah Excellent must see movie. Action packed all the way through. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/05/21 Full Review Shai D LOVED sooooo much about this movie. Huge fan of Nikita so it was def a bit nostalgic for me. I enjoyed the story and journey. Awesome chemistry between the actors. Really well cast! Beautiful locations and sets. Witty writing. Beautiful cinematography and editing. Such a fun ride I actually saw it in theater a few times with different friends. Well done!!! Looking fwd to getting it on dvd and adding it to my collection. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/26/21 Full Review Larry Love Maggie Q and Michael Keaton but the movie was the most implausible inane major motion picture in a long time! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/19/21 Full Review Cindy The acting is laughable at times and the plot is ridiculous. I'm going to go google the movie to try to understand some of the absurd plot points. Then again, who cares.

      Roxana Hadadi Mediaversity Reviews The Protégé presents itself as a racially diverse film, and in broad strokes, that holds up. Rated: C Aug 30, 2021 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Like Frankenheimer and Forbes before him, Campbell knows what he's doing. The Protégé may not be the director's finest hour, but that doesn't make what he's cooked up any less enjoyable. Rated: 3/4 Aug 25, 2021 Full Review Allison Shoemaker Fox 10 Phoenix Oscar bait, it ain't - but it's a damn good time. Aug 23, 2021 Full Review Maggie Lovitt Millennial Falcon Reviews The Protégé is an exhilarating movie filled with high-octane action, copious amounts of blood and gore, and a sensual undercurrent of fight-or-flirt that has not been seen on the silver screen since Campbell gifted cinema with James Bond and Vesper. Rated: A- Sep 24, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “The Protégé” makes for a palatable action movie as well as a fairly entertaining new entry into the growing assassin sub-genre. Rated: 3/5 Aug 17, 2022 Full Review Blai Morell Fotogramas ... Precise, without excessive frills, made in old-school fashion.
