Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A synthetic pastiche of sci-fi, action movies (borrowing feely from the superior Mad Max movies), and routine prison drama that's a sensless, incoherent mishmash that even a reliable pro like Liota cannot salavage."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Martin Campbell's generally an underrated action director, but this is just okay, not one of his finer efforts"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"A throwback to the energetic sci-fi films of yesteryear. Frantic and Fun."
‑ Clint Morris, Brag Magazine
"A watchable futuristic prison flick. Decent B-movie thrills."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
