"Kormakur, who directed and co-wrote the script with Edward Martin Weinman, falls short in the story department and even shorter in evoking the droll, twisted humor that must carry the day."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"...needlessly arty..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A stylish film that captures the bleak gloom of a desolate town and contrasts it with a satire of insurance commercials that concentrate on happy, sunny days -- not the ones that require insurance"
‑ Jeremy Mathews, Film Threat
"This is a very dark, very pretty picture (photographed by Óttar Guđnason) that has little else to offer, and its ending, at least for my taste, was a little corny."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
"The director also has a strong visual sense, turning the barren wastelands of Minnesota into the visual equivalent of the Reagan era of corporate greed in which the story is set."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, european-films.net
"The pacing makes you feel like you're trudging through the snow."
‑ Kevin Courrier, Boxoffice Magazine
