Critic Reviews



Based on 4 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
A neatly contained crime whodunit with a nifty setup and an expert lead performance from Samuel L. Jackson.
Don't let the film's highbrow cast, portentous tone, and leisurely pace fool you: Cleaner is just as empty and formulaic as his previous films, just much, much duller.
Cleaner needed serious editing and instead, seems intent on being long and drawn out to prove some sort of point.
Scrub away a needlessly fussy visual style, trendy narrative tweaks and a climax both morally repugnant and logically absurd, and there’s a tough little noir about buried transgressions coming out of the past in Renny Harlin’s lackluster thriller “Cleaner.” Too mainstream to attract genre interest, and too tangled in its character motivations to sit well with the multiplex crowd, this is a minor stain that should fade quickly and leave only faint traces in ancillary.
