Rotten: The Big Hit is nothing more, or less, than a big goof. – Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006

Fresh: Score it big-time inane but a load of fun. – Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 18, 2003

Fresh: In its non-A-list way, The Big Hit is the most successful attempt yet to transfer the Hong Kong action movie to Hollywood. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

The Big Hit Brings Big Laughs

Although iTunes labels this title as an Action & Adventure movie, it wouldn't be wrong if it also labeled it as a Comedy. The movie is full of one-liners that will keep you laughing for a long time.


Definitely a comedy. Not to be taken seriously. Many good one liners.

Mark Wahlberg talks to animals.

It's alright. Hey Mark, say hello to your mother for me, okay.
