Critic Reviews



Based on 9 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Its story is as common as sunlight, but the entertainment can be just as warm.
Skiptrace remains lively, diverting, and essentially good-natured even when it’s cheerfully dumb, exploiting its diverse locations for every last drop of local color.
Village Voice
Skiptrace proves that nothing can stop Jackie Chan, not even poor judgment.
Chan’s English-language dialogue occasionally comes across a bit muffled, but his body language rarely fails to connect. Knoxville thrashes about in a fairly undisciplined manner, but succeeds in providing a sizeable share of the comic relief.
Slant Magazine
The film's bloated action-comedy machinery prevents any real chemistry from forming between Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville.
Knoxville isn’t as starry a Hollywood foil to his co-star’s iconic stoicism as either Chris Tucker or Owen Wilson, but playing a jackass is right in his wheelhouse and in one action set piece, he’s very funny as a kind of tightly bound human prop.
[Chan] brings energy to a film that desperately needs any kind of life, but there is only so much Chan can do.
Too much of this project feels like it’s been coldly calculated for maximum international box office.
Skiptrace settles for a warmed-over plot, tedious fight sequences and humor that’s heavy on crotch jokes and pratfalls.
