Critic Reviews

  1. A few others have compared this to a James Bond movie, but it's more of a piece with a Tom Clancy movie; it never leaves the real world that far behind, it has a fair sense of documentary reality, and the action sequences -- from shootout to car chase to a commando takedown of a tanker on the high seas to a final knife fight -- are extremely well managed.
  2. 70
    Eventually develops into a pleasantly bombastic Bond-style adventure.
  3. Ambitious and impressive, both in its provocative themes and superb production design using striking sets and locations in Korea, Russia and Thailand, this handsome epic amply rewards audiences willing to go the distance.
  4. 63
    The action come fast and thick, and the sentimentality reaches near-operatic proportions.
  5. An international caper with James Bond and Tom Clancy overtones - and Austin Powers undertones, too.
  6. Eventually, Typhoon succumbs to the usual special-effects bombast and plot overkill.
