News & Interviews for Momentum

Critic Reviews for Momentum

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (9)

this action thriller never stops moving (except when Olga Kurylenko's kickass heroine Alex has her leg literally caught in a vice), racing through its series of genre routines in the hope that speed alone can cover over any cracks.

From the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers opening, through the Starsky & Hutch "gunfight in a warehouse" set-pieces, to the contractual-obligation shots of Kurylenko's bum, this is utter pants.

November 22, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Momentum is a strange husk of an action movie, one that contains all the right beats of a Hollywood contender, including a preposterous closing-reel set-up for an entire franchise to come, without a single moment of dramatic intrigue or credibility.

November 19, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The curse of Bourne continues to linger over the lower echelons of the film industry with yet another attempt to replicate its success sputtering out of the gate.

November 19, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

One of the worst films you won't see in 2015.

November 12, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

"Momentum" is a spectacularly generic action-thriller that, despite its sleekly shot and edited mayhem, lands with a giant thud.

Audience Reviews for Momentum


A fairly standard heist film, Momentum delivers some good action but is completely predictable. After robbing a bank vault, former CIA agent Alex and her crew are betrayed by their client who proceeds to kill them off in order to recover a flash drive and clean up loose ends. Olga Kurylenko and James Purefoy lead the cast and give strong performances. But the script is poorly written, as it's extremely formulaic and full of clichés. Still, the fight scenes are well-choreographed and bring some excitement and suspense to the film. While Momentum is entertaining, it lacks anything original or compelling.
