Roger EbertFull Review Good ..."Bad Samaritan" isn't exactly a good film, it is weirdly charming, thanks to its creators' exuberant commitment to unabashedly tacky ideas. "Bad Samaritan" starts out like a lurid stoner horror film. The spectacularly dumb, and weirdly entertaining bad-taste thriller....
NY PostFull Review Average Still, despite all the eye-rolling dialogue and implausible developments, Tennant's sheer malevolence holds your attention. There's also a single line...that's so funny, and so perfectly delivered, it almost makes this whole ridiculous thing worthwhile.
Rolling StoneFull Review Below Average Bad Samaritan starts with bang, quickly dissolves into a muddle and finally disintegrates in the ashes of its own borrowed inspiration. Tennant deserves better. So do audiences. Mostly, it's a collection of spare suspense parts that someone ransacked at the movie dump and is trying to resell as fresh product. Good luck with that.
NewsdayFull Review Average "Bad Samaritan" has a ripping good premise, but not enough story to back it up. Despite a lively performance from Tennant as our villain and a rather soulful turn from Sheehan (a relative newcomer from Ireland) as our flawed hero, "Bad Samaritan" only partially delivers on its promise.
