Could not even finish the movie it was sooooo dull. Rented it due to Hartnett but the story was so dull I could not even get half way through it for him.

Dennis Harvey
This middling drama has no glaring faults, but simply lacks the intended urgency. Full Review

There's not much to it, but Austin Chick's hyper-focused indie does serve as a nicely assured showcase for lead Josh Hartnett. Full Review

The New York Times
The movie's amoral momentum is fatally slowed by an acronym-heavy script and flimsy characterizations that offer fine actors -- including Rip Torn as Tom's contemptuous father and Naomie Harris as his missed opportunity -- little to play. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Another among this year's crop of features that demonstrates that having a cast with indie cred can sometimes do little to buoy a film's miscalculated execution. Full Review
