As ever, the paradox of Mr. Verhoeven's style is that it seems to wallow in tastelessness and transgression even as he remains one of the most classical movie craftsmen.

Variety

As with most soap operas, there's a new plot twist every two minutes, suitable for a medium-length format but nothing longer.

The results of the experiment don't quite make all the tedium of construction worthwhile ... The pieces fit together, but the impact is fleeting at best.

Bereft of subtext and shot in a largely handheld, TV-ready style, it lacks Verhoeven's usual deep bite, despite the cynical punch line of the ending.

A light but satisfying appetizer, one that will, for better and worse, leave viewers hungry for more.
