Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Combines a righteous message about out-of-control government surveillance with the old computer-gone-haywire plot to make - well, not very much, actually."
‑ Joel Brown, Boston Globe
"In the right hands, this premise might a good movie make -- a fable like Aladdin's lamp updated for the iPhone era. This convoluted and half-baked conspiracy thriller does not."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"Simply a case of we've-seen-this-before-and-better (at least Sandra Bullock's The Net had camp value), Conspiracy flimsily masquerades as a ticking bomb but is ultimately sans heart-pounding jolts."
‑ Adam Keleman, Slant Magazine
"Presumably it was the fact that the DVD release schedule for the week was already filled that explains the escape of this picture to theatres--it really belongs on a video store shelf or a late-night slot on a non-premium cable network."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"A by-the-numbers international thriller in the Bourne vein."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"When the only elements that could be called professional are the photography and the poster art, you can consider this a movie only the producer's mother could love."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Of all the pejorative words that could be used to describe this film, perhaps the most apt is amateurish."
‑ Tony Medley, Tolucan Times
"Echelon Conspiracy is a pale imitation of Eagle Eye, not exactly a good movie to begin with."
‑ Gary Brown, Houston Community Newspapers
"Echelon Conspiracy is a more evocative title than a movie this stupid deserves."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The movie isn't so much outright bad as it is simply flat and routine."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The biggest mystery is how this high-tech whodunit-gone-awry got a theatrical release and didn't go directly to dvd."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"This latest take on Bush-era paranoia and cell phone alarm might arrive in theaters somewhat dramatically moldy and short-sheeted in the budget department, yet it's actually a more rewarding sit than Eagle Eye if viewed with minimal attention paid"
‑ Brian Orndorf,
