Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shue, appearing uncomfortable and distracted and trying a bit too hard, comes off as more camp than vamp."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Decent twisty-turny thriller, but a lot of the twists don't make sense. Try to decipher it if you can."
‑ Fred Topel,

‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Just an average neo-noir that's kinda fun to watch once on cable."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Offers nothing new or even exciting to the genre."
‑ Glenn Slavin, Film Journal International
