Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Half Past Dead may be the year's funniest unintentional comedy for its inane plot, repetitive, unimaginative stunts and dreadful dialogue.

- David Germain, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Saturday, January 6, 2007

Rotten: Sometimes, when you've just wasted a tenner and a perfectly good evening watching another dumb, gratuitously gun-filled, hackneyed, nonsensical action picture, don't you wish you were as thick, lazy and easily pleased as Hollywood wants you to be?

- Derek Adams, Time Out, Saturday, June 24, 2006

Rotten: Doesn't deliver a great story, nor is the action as gripping as in past Seagal films.

- Doris N. Truong, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, November 14, 2002

Well we all know that Ja Rule can't act now add that to a so-so plot and decent action, then throw in Steven Seagal and what do you have...? I don't know either, but I watched it

Another great part for Seagal. Him and Ja Rule worked good together. Like all the characters. Great job by all. Lots of cool action!

Wow this sucked pretty bad...i mean i was very bored and someone at worked mentioned it. Taking chances on movies is something never mind doing, its the only way to tell the difference between whats good and bad.
