Entertainment Weekly
A tired action thriller determined to play the race card every which way for every which kind of viewer, seems hopelessly behind the curve. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
A B movie in A-grade clothing. Full Review

Washington Post

Gene Seymour
Los Angeles Times
But what little humor there is in the movie becomes subservient to the grisly violence, gratuitous cruelty and ugly car chases. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Bait ends up seeming pretty wormy. Full Review
