The Rhythm Section (2020)



Critic Consensus: Blake Lively delivers an impressive lead performance, but The Rhythm Section plods predictably through a story that could have used some flashier riffs.

Critic Reviews for The Rhythm Section

All Critics (164) | Top Critics (33)

The plot is risible. The action worse. The wait for lady Bond continues.

February 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This witless and soulless thriller squanders a formidable cast, including Blake Lively and Jude Law, who endure arduous fight scenes in a doomed effort to lend the flimsy plot some plausibility.

February 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Lively makes off with one of her best performances ever, and one that makes an unexpected case for giving the actress a real action franchise next time around.

February 1, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Director Reed Morano's atmospheric, globe-hopping revenge thriller is a decent film - nothing more, nothing less.

January 31, 2020 | Full Review…

Launches Morano into a new world of action/thriller filmmaking, and her unique style is a welcome refresh for the genre. But while it certainly has a spirit, it often loses the beat.

January 31, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Blake Lively is a compelling central force that grounds the film's tornado of contrivances.
