Read the novel instead - The Rhythm Section review by JJ

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2020

There's far too much wrong with this film to go into here. Let's just say it was a surprise to see the man who wrote the entertaining series of Stephanie Patrick novels also wrote the hopeless screenplay for this.

Not only did they gut the novel of most of its content, they omitted a voiceover which would at least have given Stephanie some of the contrast that makes her interesting: the ex-student who is forced into a depraved series of lives yet who retains a sardonic humour and some humanity throughout. All that is missing here. Avoid.

Missed opportunity - The Rhythm Section review by PC

Spoiler Alert
07/10/2020

It is quite nice that the makers of the film have taken a more gritty approach to the female assassin genre, an ever growing genre all by itself. Unfortunately, they still adhere to the usual stereotypes, she must carry out a kill whilst in sexy underwear! The script is not the best but Blake Lively is good and carries off a decent English accent.

Interminably dull would-be thriller - The Rhythm Section review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
09/10/2020

It makes its first mistake right at the beginning, with a spoiler scene from the end followed by the dreaded title ‘8 months earlier’. Mind you, if they didn’t show our heroine holding a gun in an end-scene you wouldn’t stick with this bore of a film. You probably won’t stay the distance anyway. Staid direction, hand-held camera, a focus on close-ups of talking heads, one-note acting, protracted plot, no pace, an almost total lack of action… it would take too long to list everything that’s wrong with this.
