Critic Reviews for Term Life

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

This is the kind of material that can't be elevated without help from behind the camera. Instead, the actors are left to gesture aimlessly through a stupefacient fog of clichés and insipid direction.

May 5, 2016 | Rating: D | Full Review…

"Term Life" is cleanly plotted and tautly paced, but it's never as fun as it should be.

April 30, 2016 | Full Review…

An asinine movie that has the premise for a thriller, the tone of a half-hearted neo-noir, and the plot of a daddy-daughter dramedy.

April 29, 2016 | Rating: D | Full Review…

It's a wannabe noir with no atmosphere, and a waste of a talented cast by a director who really has no idea what to do with them.

April 29, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

... a clichéd noir wannabe script that manages only some meager laughs amid the generic shootouts and chase sequences.

August 5, 2016 | Full Review…

This labored, failed thriller feels like a collection of odd puzzle pieces that don't fit but have been nonetheless forced together. Even the great cast members seem squeezed into the wrong roles.
