    The actors cannot be faulted. They bring more to the story than it really deserves.

    This thriller largely succeeds in putting quotation marks around its use of genre conventions, mixing subtlety and overkill to create a pensive mood that transcends the plot.

    The satisfaction of watching it essentially boils down to seeing whether or not Reeves can pull it off.
  4. It's lively but fails to disguise the fact that his (Charbanic) script is a dud and his career in videos has taught him little about the art of narrative storytelling.
  5. A crass, mechanical attempt at a thriller that should have gone straight to video.

    Sidesteps any juicy subtext in favor of routine chase-movie thrills.
  7. 0
    A shockingly, unbelievably bad movie.

    An extremely entertaining cat&mouse thriller that will have you guessing at every turn.

    This movie was okay. It got 28 reviews from critics. Critics are like weathermen. They're almost always wrong.

    Too easy to predict. Keanu Reaves cannot play a bad guy, he doesn't scare me.
