Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Aspiring for psychological drama rather than action movie, the film takes itself far too seriously."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"A tight psychological thriller that punches well above its low-budget weight."
‑ Alexander Pashby, Electric Sheep
"... the director has a good eye and a great lead actor to pull Legacy through."
‑ Norm Schrager, Filmcritic.com
"Featuring plenty of visceral thrills and presented with more intelligence than many of the thrillers which spring from Hollywood strafing cliche bullets to little effect, it suggests everyone concerned is destined for bigger, better things in the future."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"As a showpiece for Elba, the movie functions well, and will probably be regarded mainly for being just that."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"A complex character study brought to absorbing, haunting life through the fierce commitment of its acting and filmmaking."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
