Gunman, The (15)

Gunman, The (15)

Action, Crime, Drama

A former Special Forces soldier and military contractor, suffering from PTSD, goes on the run from London to Barcelona and across Europe.

The critical consensus

It's crass, clumsy and sometimes shockingly bad.

**(*)(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 16/03/2015

Sub-Ludlum plotting but stylishly executed, this offers a fun night out but is far from a nailed-on franchise-starter.

***(*)(*)James Dyer, Empire Online, 16/03/2015

One viewing is probably enough.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 19/03/2015

Gym-bunny Sean Penn’s toned physique is the best thing in this underpowered tale of Congo mercenaries.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/03/2015

Sean Penn's half-cocked hitman fires wide of the target.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 19/03/2015

The result plays like a sub-par airport thriller with exotic locations, heaps of testosterone but not enough plot, tension or surprise.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 22/03/2015

A novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette provides the source material, but the only real “auteur” here is Morel, for whom this is very much more of the same.
