The series has grossed $694 million worldwide.

The first film received mixed reviews from critics. Roger Ebert called it “as good as a James Bond movie”. Adam Smith of Empire Online called the movie, “Sporadically entertaining, but seriously hampered by a very choppy screenplay”, and rating it three out of five stars. The film was nominated for a Razzie Award for Most Flatulent Teen-Targeted Movie, but lost to Jackass: The Movie.

The second film in the series was panned by critics, Boo Allen of the Denton Record Chronicle called it “a chubby, surly, incomprehensible action hero”. Brian Orndorf of FilmJerk.com compared watching the film to running “headfirst at top speed into a brick wall”. David Hiltbrand of the Philadelphia Inquirer said “the plot swings between pathetically implausible and aggressively stupid”. Some critics liked the film. Mack Bates of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel praised Ice Cube’s “trademark charisma and street sensibility”, while Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly called it “that rare B movie that’s rooted in gut-level stirrings of power and retaliation”.Paul Arendt of the BBC said, “Viewed on its own trashy terms, it succeeds brilliantly”.

The third film received mixed reviews from critics. Dan Jolin of Empire Online said, “We’ve seen all these stunts pulled before, and seen them done better, but there’s some pleasure to be had here — even if it’s of the extremely guilty kind.”
