Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Some of the comic writing undercuts the preposterous story."
‑ Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
"An absolute piece of terminal trash."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"A brisk, sleek wrong-man story that's easily the better of 1994's dueling skydiver movies and, had a darker Charlie Sheen from another universe not swapped places with our own, might have made the actor Kurt Russell's action-movie heir apparent."

‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"Fun action movie if you forgive the total silliness."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
