Stratton (15)

Action, Thriller

A British Special Boat Service commando tracks down an international terrorist cell.

The critical consensus

A padded remake of a James Bond pre-credits sequence (specifically, the one with Pierce Brosnan and the Millennium Dome). If Cooper’s Stratton is to stick around, he needs to up his game.

**(*)(*)(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 30/08/2017

Enjoyable, but only if your expectations are low, Stratton is not likely to inspire a sequel anytime soon.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 28/08/2017

Cooper plays the hero with boyish enthusiasm. What can never be escaped, though, is the utterly formulaic nature of the storytelling.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 30/08/2017

Cooper plays a member of the elite Special Boat Service in this medium-budget, moderately silly action movie.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 30/08/2017

Filled with car chases and shootouts Stratton cannot overcome a weak script and some odd casting.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 01/09/2017

Derek Jacobi’s performance is among the lowlights of this embarrassing Bond-on-a-boat affair.
