Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sleazy, exploitative thriller that milks its child-in-danger premise for all it's worth."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"The movie is a negligible work of manipulation, an exploitation piece doing its usual worst to guilt-trip parents."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"I don't mind admitting that the movie, for me, became about Courtney Love. That's the effect she has..."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"It comes off as so silly that you wouldn't be surprised if BA, Murdock and rest of the A-Team were seen giving chase in a black and red van."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"What started out as a taut contest of wills between Bacon and Theron, deteriorates into a protracted and borderline silly chase sequence."
‑ Rick Kisonak, Film Threat
"Brisk hack job."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"Indifferently implausible popcorn programmer of a movie."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"... so many directions with so much silliness that a surprise no longer surprises."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"I'm half-convinced it's a very poker-faced comedy. Then again, I may be giving the filmmakers way too much credit."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Un thriller manqué qui tombe sur les nerfs presque dès la première image."
‑ Nicolas Lacroix,
"Adapting his novel 24 Hours, first-time screenwriter Greg Iles has neglected to include in his plotting a sense of impending doom, a lack of purpose that isn't helped by the arid filmmaking style of director Luis Mandoki."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"The manner in which this film flies completely off the rails is undoubtedly amusing, but its also disappointing, considering the fair competence of all that came before."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Nada poderia preparar o público para o caos que toma conta da produção em seu ato final, que, aparentemente, foi escrito enquanto o roteirista encontrava-se bêbado."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"'Es en verdad una pena que Mandoki esté realizando cintas tan malas desde hace algún tiempo, pues talento tiene, pero quién sabe dónde lo tiene escondido.'"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"Great character interaction."
‑ Matt Easterbrook, Matt's Movie Reviews
