Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Given a sweeping epic treatment."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...there's no real flow or sense of pacing at work here."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"[A] visually stunning epic."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Open-minded viewers will be treated to a gripping work of style and tension - an expression of rage and conditioning that's remarkably vicious for a 1960s adventure yarn."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"clean, swift, and brutal"
‑ Zach Hines, Filmcritic.com
"A film defined by its meticulously precise construction."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
