"The heavy-handed approach to the slim story bogs the film down so badly that even hardcore fans will find their patience tested to the limits as they wait in vain hope for some of the old excitement to arise."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"...irredeemably and thoroughly awful..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A terrible movie from a great director."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"a thrilling piece of fantasy with plenty of action"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Such little regard for character or motive that it's a wonder I stayed awake"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
