Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's ensemble cast is an impressive mix of old hands and fresh faces, but their efforts are let down by some very contrived plotting."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"One expected more from a script co-written by Paul Abbott."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The pacey but formulaic action rapidly loses credibility."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"There's a good cast here, but it's hard to shake off the feeling that this would probably work better on TV, the subject matter being very familiar to those who like their drama delivered in episodes."
‑ Phelim O'Neill, Guardian
"Badly let down by some silly plotting that negates the film's ability to be taken seriously and a screenplay that all too often reduces a lot of the characters to stereotype."
‑ Rob Carnevale, The List
