Critic Reviews

  1. This is high-carb filmmaking at its finest. When it's all over, you'll have a knot in your stomach.
  2. An excellent job of retaining key elements of the original plot but have created a whole new set of characters that gives the film an entirely contemporary feel.
  3. Refreshingly, it's actually about action, albeit arbitrary action, and how it defines us and keeps us alive.
  4. Effective action, solid suspense, excellent Ribisi, plus enough clichés to equal the grains of Gobi sand that fill the screen.
  5. The old-fashioned theme of disaster as an existential test of character still works.
  6. Ends up feeling like the sort of leisurely man's-man adventure movie you used to be able to catch on Sunday afternoon TV.
  7. The action is thrilling enough.
