Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is an exceedingly well directed, cleverly filmed and edited, tension-filled affair. It is also a wholly preposterous, muddled, paranoid view of the inner-city nightmare where the slightest misstep is sure to have a fateful result."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"It's refreshing to know that it's not just characters in horror films who are irredeemably dumb."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Excellent soundtrack, appalling acting, especially by Gooding."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Pretty tense stuff most of the way."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A tight, energetic sleeper in the action-adventure genre, manages to pack a few anti-machismo sentiments into an otherwise brawny tale."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Perhaps the ultimate Judgment comes from Estevez, who observes: 'Nothing about tonight makes sense.'"
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A classy, edge of your seat thriller. Fun all round!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"The filmmakers have made a big deal of a soundtrack that features 10 collaborations between rappers and rockers (the theme is performed by De La Soul and Teenage Fan Club), but their casting consciousness is less adventurous."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"Works as an absurd but entertaining action thriller..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Fallon's obsessive quest to eliminate witnesses comes to seem more and more like utter madness -- but then, maybe that's the point. It's hard to tell amidst the layered gunfire and random explosions."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
