Critic Reviews for Fatal Beauty

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (4)

The wisecracks and the swaggering are as unrelieved as the film's almost comically ecstatic gunplay. Someone must have figured audiences like things this way.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

Goldberg's best work since The Color Purple.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Bloody, boring and pandering, is as poisonous as the drug trade it pretends to defame.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

Tom Holland directed from a script and story credited to three individuals, anyone could have knocked this one out during coffee break.

January 1, 2000

Nothing, not a thing in Fatal Beauty is believable.

August 19, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Never quite hits the sweet spot in balancing action and humor. The film clunkily moves back and forth between them, rather than getting them to work in unison.
