- " There's an odd comfort in these type of Neeson-led action films, and that feeling of familiarity manages to push The Marksman a little closer to his recommended target. " – Peter Gray (Brisbanista)
- " Liam Neeson is reliably fine in this standard but watchable action flick. " – Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood Daily)
- " Neeson puts in another fine performance as an average guy thrust into a situation he wasn't looking for. There's plenty of action and heart as the film tackles family, honor, and immigration. " – Joe Friar (The Victoria Advocate)
