Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Bracingly chilly! – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: It surprises by taking us inside Chinatown, where we discover just how sinister and elaborate the relationships between the police and the businessmen can be. – Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Hard Boiled, directed by the master of the genre, director John Woo, is a cult favorite. The Corruptor isn't in that league. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It's rote baloney, trotting out every dead-stupid cop-movie cliche in the book and doing it colorlessly. – Michael Atkinson, Mr. Showbiz, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

"...You don't choose Chinatown, boy. It chooses you".

The Corruptor is a good action thriller. New York's Chinatown District plays almost like a character itself within this film. Great performance by Chow Yun-fat, almost reminds me of his role in John Woo's The Replacement Killers, being almost like the same troubled, conflicted character in this film. Wahlberg shines too, being his 2nd action film since The Big Hit. Director James Foley, who is used to directing non action films, worked with Wahlberg for the first time in 1996's Fear, that also starred Reece Witherspoon, William Peterson, Amy Brenneman and Alyssa Milano. I enjoyed the film. Plus anything being filmed in New York, I checkout, because I love the city. The film DOES has it's cheesy & silly moments, though. The film's hip hop soundtrack is probably better than the movie itself (which IS NOT on iTunes) and the score composed by Carter Burwell is great (which IS on iTunes). Yun-fat and Wahlberg fans should check this one out.
