More Info:
  • Sheila O'Malley

    A pretty uneven film, lurching from comedy to violence to sentiment, but it's best when it sticks in the realm of flat-out farce. Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is a deliberately off-kilter, cheerfully violent, hit-and-miss effort with just enough moments of inspiration to warrant a recommendation — especially if you know what you’re getting into.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This isn't vintage De Niro but at least there's more substance here than in a lot of his other recent projects. Michelle Pfeiffer, who flirted with this sort of a role 25 years ago in "Married to the Mob," is enjoying something of a renaissance after working only sparingly for more than a decade.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Not known for subtlety, Besson gets the expected laughs, and then some. He also exercises an unwonted finesse, not only with the allusions, but also with variations on the “f” word that, if not poetic, are at least funny.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The Family is the rare breed of pitch-black comedy that effectively uses violence for laughs or gasps, depending on the situation.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Adam Markovitz

    Doesn't just wink at De Niro's history, it leans on it, hard.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    It’s at its best in the brief moments when Besson plunges into complete, comic-book-panel unreality, as in an early shot where a hitman in a black trenchcoat, black trilby hat, and black gloves emerges silencer-first from behind a wall of smoke. It's the rare occasion when you might wish a director were more over-indulgent.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The Family is a film at once strange and intriguing. It can't seem to settle on a tone. The early eruptions of violence are treated as slapstick when they are most assuredly not. But the climactic showdown, which fairly cries out for a touch of humor, is played as a tense and grim action sequence.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    A messy brew that is a bit too slack to get all the way to actually being good.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The movie has holes galore. It has abrupt tonal shifts, an incoherent back story and abandoned subplots. It doesn’t even try for basic credibility. But buoyed by hot performances, it sustains a zapping electrical energy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sherrie Li

    You can be chuckling one minute then cowering and cringing the next, which tinges the humor with apprehension and taints the brutality with absurdity. That isn't to say that the combo doesn't work at all.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Matt Patches

    It’s a sadistic comedy, both in bloodshed and groan-worthy gags. Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    Their inside jape is unfortunately not as much fun for the audience as it may have been for the filmmakers, though it does have its piquant moments. But it’s not consistently entertaining enough either as a spoof or as a thriller.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Robert De Niro – wait for it – in the role of a mobster. Now there's an original idea.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The Family is a fish-out-of-water/buddy comedy/Mob flick. But most of all, it's a missed opportunity.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Besson aims his movie at anyone who’s ever held a grudge at an ill-mannered French waiter or clerk (haughty, and by the way, they’d NEVER condescend to speak to you in English). If that includes you, The Family has serves up a little wish-fulfillment payback, with a baseball bat.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Though it’s good to see Michelle Pfeiffer married to the mob again, she alone can’t redeem a lumbering farce that takes an unpleasantly sadistic glee in violence, murder and intimidation.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Another to airbrush out of the De Niro back catalogue.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    But Besson — by no means a bad filmmaker — has gotten rich off that kind of violence that upsets no one, least of all jaded international action audiences. He tries to have it both ways and fails some of cinema’s most precious resources.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Curiously airless, weightless and tonally uncertain, the picture mixes mass murder, dismemberment and rape threats with sappy sentimentality, fish-out-of-water gags and groan-worthy meta-humor, yet very little of it manages to leave any impression.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Yes, The Family has skills. They’re like “The Incredibles” — except they’re heroes for sadists and sociopaths only.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The film is curiously joyless and inert.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    It dispassionately plays like a video game with a high body count.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Remember when Robert De Niro was an interesting actor? These days his talent, like his character in The Family, is in the witness protection program, never to be seen again.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    After the movie limps along for an hour and a half, Besson suddenly switches gears and does what he does best.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Adam Nayman

    There isn’t a single genuinely sharp sequence in the entire movie. The casting of Robert De Niro as an ex-Mafioso hiding in witness protection is witty in only the silliest, most superficial way. It’s a joke with its own tinny, built-in laugh track.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    A film whose only distinguishing characteristic is how big a mess it makes of its already meager ambitions.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    The Family is ultimately a headache, nearly two hours of baseball bat beatings and dull witticisms, with zero inventiveness or energy.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Catherine Shoard

    Robert De Niro does further damage to a reputation much battered by "The Big Wedding."

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Ashley Clark

    The film’s sole saving grace is Tommy Lee Jones’s amusingly cranky FBI agent, but he can’t save this ship from sinking.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Director Luc Besson treats his protagonists as likable cartoons yet never provides a single reason to view them as anything less than remorseless, repugnant psychos.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    It’s too bad we can’t take a hit out on The Family. This unexciting, unfunny would-be action satire is filled with Italian-American stereotypes, decades-old TV-style Mafia cliches, bits of business that never amount to anything and actors so much better than the hoary, one-joke material.
