Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Don't let the big names fool you: The Code is limp enough a thriller to deserve the direct-to-video treatment it's received.

- David Cornelius,, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: ...a hopelessly uneven endeavor that's consistently buoyed by Freeman's mere presence...

- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: The sadness created by this film could be cured only by its quick descent in well-deserved oblivion.

This one was pretty entertaining. Although it had a few huge turns and plot twists, they weren?t as much of a surprise to me as they should have been. Morgan Freeman is great as always, but Antonio Banderas left something to be desired. The story is simple to follow, but it felt like many aspects of this film were taken from other movies. Even though it felt a bit like a mosaic created from some other films I have already seen, it was still a fun one to watch. Check it out!

A good entertaining film with a twist at the end

I think Morgan Freeman is a really good actor, and that's the main reason why I wanted to watch this film. However it is just another average bank heist movie. The story moves along nicely, it has a few short moments where it seems to drift away from the main plot but it doesn't distract you from the main story. With a great cast this should have been fun, sexy, bad, and exciting but there was something lacking. Primarily, this is a story about thieves thieving, some complicated lying, some sex, entertaining but not memorable. However there is plenty of action to keep you entertained with a good twist towards the end.
