Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A rollicking time at the movies, if not exactly enlightening."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The anachronisms...force us to separate historical accuracy from the shadow it casts of a living spectacle, and Scott manages this task entirely with drollness instead of didacticism."
‑ Peter Henne, Film Journal International
"The best argument ever made for the carpet bombing of Hollywood."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"What the hell did I just watch?"
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"A two-bit action movie masquerading as legitimate filmmaking."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
