Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film seems inexplicably tame, the least interesting execution of a radical concept."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Seemingly inspired by "Taxi Driver" with its security guard stand-in for Travis Bickle wasting Wall Street brokers who are arguably worse than the pimps in "Taxi Driver"."
‑ Louis Proyect,
"...the age of being offended by this sort of thing might also be long-gone: the only question on viewers' minds during the film's violent climax is how exactly Boll was able to get so much shoddy footage on location."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"Boll spends so much time painting Jim into the corner required to "justify" his bonkers actions that once the film's fuse is irrevocably lighted, viewers may have already checked out."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Because it wouldn't be Boll if there wasn't borderline irresponsible storytelling."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Uwe Boll's insistence on plugging genre tropes into his imagined idea of populism returns us to the same cynical place as Postal, except with none of the sizzle."
‑ Steve Macfarlane, Slant Magazine
"This zeitgeist-tapping revenge fantasy doesn't deliver enough guilty pleasures."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Possibly the only director on the planet who has garnered a strange recognition through utter infamy, Boll engages in a weirdly raw and rowdy subversive ideological descent into the dysfunctionally dark recesses of US culture."
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Radio
