Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is an efficiently engineered mechanism for creating suspense."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Shuttle mostly exists, in the words of Alfred Hitchcock, to 'put the audience through it,' but it leaves you in a very different place than where it started and with remarkable economy of effort."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Boasts a killer premise and better than average acting, so it's all the more disappointing that Anderson proves unable to avoid annoying horror movie pitfalls."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The characters are aggressive and mostly smart, the villain is fearsome and hateful, and the premise ('An airport shuttle ride descends into darkness') is brilliantly simple."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"A slightly prosaic and tedious, but mostly chilly and intense ride."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"When the payoff finally arrives, it seems tasteless not just because of its topicality, but because the shock feels unearned."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Shuttle is a grim and twisted exercise in high-stress terror that falls just short of the torture-porn subgenre."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Immediate frights and long-lasting dread are still not quite enough"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
"Well conceived thriller, Shuttle takes the familiar situation and develops it into terrifying ordeal"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Instead of suspense, we get frustration at the stupidity of the characters."
‑ Bill White, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"There is no release for the audience, no 'entertainment,' not even much action excitement. Just a remorseless march into the dark."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"If you step aboard Shuttle, be prepared for one heck of a ride filled with suspense, action and ever-escalating terror. With this ingenious thriller, Edward Anderson, who wrote the heist flick Flawless, makes an audacious directorial debut."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Hop aboard this Shuttle if you're in the mood for one unsettling ride."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"Shuttle could have worked but it is so bogged down with clichés and predictable twists that it comes apart at its illogical seams."
‑ Brian Tallerico, Movie Retriever
"a pile of stinking turpitude"
‑ Jay Antani,
