Beckett (2021) - Rotten Tomatoes


Beckett (2021)



Critic Consensus: Beckett brings a propulsive energy to its man-on-the-run story, but this rather thinly written thriller fails to consistently engage.

Critic Reviews for Beckett

It could be a lot better. It could be a lot stronger as it approaches the finish. But there's something to be said for watching a guy hide in a car trunk and think, "For him, this is probably the best part of his day."

"Beckett" isn't horrible but it seems uncertain as to what it truly wants to be.

August 19, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The premise is ripe; the thrills are rich; the payoff doesn't come together quite as easily as the rest. But much of what's here is good -- more interesting for verging on the ridiculous.

August 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Beckett lacks urgency, wit, and a lead actor capable of pulling together its underwritten themes.

August 13, 2021 | Full Review…

A ludicrous chase thriller keeps running off course...

August 13, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The novelty of watching Washington's Beckett run-and run-even as he's hampered by obvious pain wears thin pretty quickly.
