Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Slick, old-fashioned formulaic entertainment"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Steven Seagals' finest moment....action from go to whoa"
‑ Clint Morris, Mediasharx
"Vintage Seagal. Although that's not much of a compliment."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Seagal, it turns out, is only as good as his director."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A big step above Seagal's usual dreck thanks to skillful direction by Andrew Davis and strong villains played by Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"The movie that was almost DIE HARD on a cruise ship. Bad script and acting made up for by Segal's butt-kicking, and Lee Jones and Busey in full-on hammy villain mode."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"I'm not sure the wife or girlfriend would approve, but for the man of the house, it's above-average beer-and-pretzels material."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Seagal's best film."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
