About the Movie

John Cusack (2012) and Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook) star in this action-packed crime thriller about a hit-man named Jack (Cusack), who takes an assignment to deliver a mysterious bag to his crafty boss (De Niro) with strict instructions not to peek inside. With the help of an elusive prostitute (Rebecca Da Costa, Breaking at the Edge), Jack battles a mess-load of gunfire, a slew of crooked cops and unruly mobsters on a deadly quest to deliver the precious cargo and earn a big pay day. This action-packed crime thriller also stars Crispin Glover (Alice in Wonderland), Sticky Fingaz and Martin Klebba.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: At least Mr. De Niro, who disappears from the movie until the end, seems to be enjoying himself. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Feb 27, 2014

Rotten: What's in the bag? A tedious, self-consciously quirky postmodern noir featuring John Cusack and Robert De Niro in two of the more obvious money jobs of their careers. – Scott Foundas, Variety, Mar 5, 2014

Rotten: There are so many good reasons to bag "The Bag Man." Where to begin? – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Feb 27, 2014

Rotten: Alas, listening to De Niro's criminal bigwig Dragna casually describe how he was motivated to take up his underworld profession by an episode of Full House isn't enough to salvage David Grovic's dreary directorial debut. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Feb 25, 2014

Cusack’s High Toxicity Level

It is no longer enjoyable to spend time with Cusack. And certainly it is not enjoyable to spend time with the scripts he chooses, or the characters. Like a 50 year old Justin Bieber, Cusack still seems to be trying to prove his dark manhood. We get it, Cusack. You’re not a kid anymore. You’re not boy wonder rom com prince sensitive young man. We get it. Now try the middle way. Instead of the toxic Lee Daniels violent confused sex serial killer overdone fried fake hair misogynistic bad noir career route. It’s played out.

The Bag Man

Extremely poor, waste of time. Am surprised Di Nero and Cusack signed up for this travesty. Shame on them!

Wasn't that bad at all

I didn't think it was a bad movie. Not the best I've seen, but not bad nonetheless.
