The Way of the GunThey make no excuses. They don't ask forgiveness. Their story is without compromise, brutal and simple. Two criminal drifters without sympathy get more than they bargained for after kidnapping and holding for ransom the surrogate mother of a powerful and shady man.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "The Way of the Gun"Globe and MailApril 25, 2003
Both the picture and its nefarious plot seem self-consciously calculated.Detroit NewsJanuary 01, 2000
Before you rush out to see what all the noise is about, though, know that The Way of the Gun mounts more aural bullets, swagger and pretense than substance.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Rotten, pretentious movie full of minimalist dialogue and self-consciously arty cinematography.Chicago TribuneJanuary 01, 2000
In a way, [McQuarrie] almost seems motivated by the same things that drive his killers: desperation and loot.Miami HeraldJanuary 01, 2000
For all its post-modern quirks, The Way of the Gun can't help but feel pointlessly derivative.Philadelphia InquirerJanuary 01, 2000
Like his characters, McQuarrie's film has two faces: It is overplotted and it is crisply directed.Common Sense MediaDecember 29, 2010
Exceptionally violent movie -- not for kids.Suite101.comDecember 02, 2010
It boastfully claims roaring, bloodletting gunfire to do Sam Peckinpah proud, Joe Kraemer's throbbing percussive score (proving timpani should get more melodies) and any number of quotable, slick dialogue snippets. Swaggering, verbose, soulful and badass.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
It's a tour-de-force of cinematic invention. But at the same time, it's just about the coldest, most pointless crime movie I've ever seen.One Guy's OpinionDecember 06, 2005
An odd mingling of the old and the no-longer-quite-so-new, a picture that shows flashes of wit but as a whole doesn't hang together.Looking CloserDecember 06, 2004
It wants to keep you guessing, but there are so many twists and turns that I gave up trying to guess.Detour MagazineJune 01, 2003
one hell of a sick, exhilarating roller coaster ride through Modern Film Noire Land
