  1. One of the smartest action thrillers to come along in the past few years. It's also one of the freshest.
  2. This new heist movie by the great thriller director John Frankenheimer flails around like its own dysfunctional gang of casino robbers.
  3. Displays no ambition to be anything more than a synthetic sense-jolt conveyor of the week.

    About an hour after you've seen it, you'll already be fuzzy on just who was screwing who, and why
  7. While you may like comedies and you make like thrillers, this film does neither of the above with any pizazz.
