  1. It is the kind of superbly crafted, intelligent entertainment — a classic suspense thriller — that nowadays is as welcome as it is rare.
  2. Anyhow, either as history at its most inspiring or moviemaking at its most exciting, The Tunnel is a trip.

    Really disappointing. I expected a serious, thoughtful European film treatment a la Costa-Gavras and got a schlock Hollywood Action Thriller a la Bruce Willis (starring a B.W. look-alike no less.) After a modestly interesting beginning things get progressively sillier until we enter James Bond territory and you're wondering how the film got there and whether its worth your while to continue watching it. Very slick, very commercial and very vapid stuff !! Full Review »
