Critic Reviews



Based on 6 critic reviews provided by
True Memoirs is harmless, disposable junk food that has just enough laughs to make you feel like you didn’t get scammed.
Ultimately, True Memoirs of an International Assassin isn’t entertaining enough to recommend, but it’s certainly not the torturous experience of recent James vehicles like “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” or “Pixels,” and parts of it actually work.
True Memoirs Of An International Assassin scores a few lucky shots, but ultimately overstays its welcome.
Cleverer than the average Kevin James comedy, though its better gags are unlikely to inspire more than a snicker.
Using an overabundance of plot to pave over a remarkable paucity of jokes, “Memoirs” quickly tailspins into a lifeless supercut of cheap action, terrible gags, and a series of scenes in which increasingly dangerous stereotypes are fooled into believing that Sam is an actual assassin.
It’s damnable with faint praise. It’s too cheap to be thrilling, and too earnest to be all that offensive. Mired in clichés. Mostly flat. A weak Spy. Only Kevin James diehards need apply.
