What's it about:

A retired assassin is drawn back into the life he gave up when his daughter is kidnapped. To rescue her, he must confront his former rival.

What the critics say:

If filmmakers were put on trial for hackery, a good prosecutor might ask director Miller why The Prince contains no discernible prince but does feature a closing-credit shout-out to "Prince Yoohanhwesa."
- Chuck Wilson, Village Voice

Unless you're a fan of yawn-worthy shootouts and showdowns, "The Prince" is a "Taken" retread hardly indicative of any special set of skills.
- Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

Originality, either in terms of writing or direction, in in short supply in this assembly-line vigilante thriller.
- Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com

Macho mayhem as the male version of maternal instinct. While Willis rather delicately negotiates his darker side, in a shaky balance between a slightly humanized professional psychopath seeking closure for a major grievance, and just a really rotten dude.
- Prairie Miller, Critical Women
