Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's an absorbing, atmospheric noir with nice little touches."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"For all the talent on screen, no one has much chemistry."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Gee. No wonder I never heard of this."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"This undermarketed noir suffers because many of its characters don't seem to belong in the same universe."
‑ Ellen Fox, Chicago Tribune
"doesn't make an ounce of sense"
‑ Pete Croatto,
"A dull, stolid attempt at a contemporary film noir, clumsily constructed and loaded with bad hard-boiled dialogue, slack direction and stilted acting...a no good movie."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"... just a ridiculous story that layers one ridiculous, silly, contrivance after another."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Admirers of the cast or of Bob Rafelson would do all concerned parties a very good deed by not witnessing their combined embarrassment."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
