Originally hired to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife (Jennifer Aniston), a bounty hunter (Gerard Butler) soon finds himself on the run for his life.
" There are two parallel stories: Milo's and Nicole's on-again, off-again relationship, and those guys with guns who keep shooting at them. We know exactly how the first one is going to end and we don't care about the second. "
" The latest evidence that, when it comes to romantic combat, we live in a more thoughtlessly brutal age than our ancestors did. "
" The filmmakers clearly believe that their tangled storyline is madcap and delightful, but each new complication just serves to make us feel as though the blessed end of the movie is creeping further and further away. "
" Even considered as no more than an assembly-line Hollywood product, The Bounty Hunter falls well below factory standards. "
" You know it's bad when a caper comedy makes you long for the Goldie Hawn-Chevy Chase showcases of yore... "
" The putrid result never rises even to the lofty heights of mediocrity. "
" Someday, The Bounty Hunter and last month's Cop Out will be featured in a cable movie double bill as the two worst 1988 films of 2010. "
" ...plays less like a genuine story than as a series of 'beats' engineered for the cheapest possible audience responses. "
" The film is stuffed with these idiosyncratic micro-roles (I loved Siobhan Fallon Hogan as the bondsman's secretary), which prove more diverting than the two main characters. "
" There'll be worse films released in 2010 -- but not many. "
" The story of a bail enforcer who captures his newspaper-reporter ex-wife manages to be both formulaic and patchwork, with whatever twinkles that exist between the stars eclipsed by the overall crudeness. "
" At points, the film sinks below the level of competent: A stupid plot trick early on is so badly edited that it takes another minute to figure out what's supposed to be going on. "
