Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"tells an old story in occasionally inventive way"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"A dreary little button-pusher laden with overbaked dramatics, coloring book plot conventions, and annoyingly simplistic answers to several truly difficult questions."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
