Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It delivers in the shoot-'em-up mentality, not to be taken seriously but a fun thing to watch on a Saturday afternoon."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Big Stars don't always make for Big Time Fun"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"The simple chase set-up is promising, but the follow-through is curiously lethargic and suspenseless."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Whether you like original action movies, or female empowerment, either way you will be disappointed."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"A fast-paced, underrated reworking of the often-sluggish Day of the Jackal. Willis is good as the villainous title character. More enjoyable than anyone wanted to admit."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"There's a certain novelty factor at work here that may appeal to die-hard Willis fans... As to everyone else, it's hard to imagine why they'd want to bother."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
