Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The rare post-Tarantino men-with-guns indie that works on its own terms, this hyperactive B-movie has the title selling points in abundance but also a lot of wit and flair."
‑ Rob Nelson, Boston Phoenix
"'s a wonder that Joe Carnahan was able to find a second gig."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews

‑ Cole Smithey,

‑ Rod Granger, Film Journal International
"No amount of slick style and visual invention can make up for a contrived and unsatisfying wrap-up."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The film had energy ..."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
