  1. 60
    This is a film which resonates on a surprising number of levels. But the level on which it undoubtedly works best is the victim-goes-postal-and-takes-the-law-into-his-own-hands level.
  2. It was shrewdly written by Forrest Smith and directed crisply by Paul Abascal (Gibson's onetime hairdresser) for maximum visceral impact upon the susceptible.
  3. Paparazzi is for anyone who's ever wondered how good it would feel to knock down a photographer with his car and then back over him.
  4. 40
    Amazingly arrogant, immoral film.
  5. 40
    Paparazzi follows the vigilante playbook in all its banality, without much in the way of moral reflection.
  6. 38
    One has the sense that if the level of violence had been ratcheted up a little, Paparazzi might have been more of a guilty pleasure and less of a chore to watch.
  7. There is no energy here. No sense of movie invention or fun.
