Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An effective morality play. The plot has enough twists and turns in it to keep it interesting."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Klopka (The Trap) starts off as a fascinating post-Milosevic film noir but ends up somewhere in the land of day-time soap circa 1985."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij,
"Technically efficient but with a plot lacking in warmth, with too many implausible events and a story line that's too slick to find credible."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It may have some extra padding, but its bone structure -- the basic story and the way it's laid out -- is impeccable."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Cinematical
