Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Forget the mystery thriller plot... succeeds more as a study of character."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Hard to swallow."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Not so much a nail-biting whodunit as it is a picture puzzle of a self-destructive type in overdrive, weaving from one misstep to another to, eventually and accidentally, the right answer."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
"The story drifts away, and the movie is structured in a conventional way that lets us know it won't end tragically."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Few films cheapen their own material so blatantly."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"This is the old gritty Clint -- the "Do you feel lucky punk?" Clint."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Eastwood handles it professionally, intelligently, and beautifully."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A riveting and moral drama about an antihero who comes through despite all his flaws."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A respectable film, particularly in its unequivocal details involving the characters and genuinely unpredictable outcome."
‑ Dustin Putman,
