Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"O artifício narrativo do "tempo real", usado com bem mais eficácia em Matar ou Morrer e Festim Diabólico, acaba se revelando insuficiente para gerar a tensão desejada, que, como se não bastasse, é destruída de vez no terrível ato final do filme."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A slick, highly imaginative thriller"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Depp and Walken. What else matters?"
‑ Victoria Alexander, FilmsInReview.com
"Gimmicky film that takes some great actors and makes them into props. Depp plays against type, and Walken manages okay as the film operates in real time (a device used many times before and since, most recently in Fox's "24" TV show). Skip it."
‑ Larry Carroll, Countingdown.com
"An exciting albeit illogical tale of mystery and suspense..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"Depp... is very visibly bored with this blatant bid for mainstream action stardom."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Doesn't work as well as it think it does, but remains compelling, throughout."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Walken is more pantomime villain than genuine menace and Depp spends the entire film looking as though he regretted signing up for it."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"A fast and furious 90 minutes that doesn't waste a second."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"What is Depp doing in this tepid thriller?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Tight, suspenseful thriller."
‑ John Oliver, Katrillion.com
"This inconsequential suspense yarn brings little to the table and concludes with an unsatisfying ending -- which was more silly than tense."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
