    Unfortunately, Allegiance is less sure-footed in the filmmaking department, rendering its potentially suspenseful storyline stilted and uncompelling. show more

    Allegiance works better as a way of reminding us who does the fighting in this age of outsourcing than it does as a human drama. show more

    Michael Connors does a fine job of not passing judgment on his characters, yet his depiction of his main character's dilemma is about the only thing he handles correctly. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    What, exactly, is the payoff for suffering through such painfully bad filmmaking for 93 minutes? Forget about getting "A Few Good Men"–style military melodramatics; this movie quickly proves that even a few good performances, lines of dialogue or music cues are a pipe dream. Your loyalty will not be rewarded. show more

    The film boasts an insistent and unquestioning patriotism. What begins as a drama devolves by the halfway point into an overly long chase film, which only grows more and more boring. show more

    Allegiance is an intermittently compelling but ultimately disappointing drama that loses track of its own point of view in favor of more generic storytelling. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    This well-acted debut feature from Michael Connors (a former Army captain) is too limited in ambition and scope to satisfy our expectations. show more

    Ronnie Scheib Variety

    The picture's assorted characters, though credible, feel wearisomely one-dimensional, while the pumped-up action, unfolding in a single day, basically consists of an extended game of hide-and-seek. show more
