Feels like George Clooney should be in this movie as Batman with nipples.

Village Voice
Insular and indulgent as it is, though, the movie is never less than a visual treat. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
It's a picture that's akin to a terrarium of plastic flowers -- gaudily decorative, but airless and lifeless. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
Bunraku aspires to be "Kill Bill: Vol 3"; it's more like an ornate pitch for a "Dick Tracy" reboot. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
It should surprise no one that visually quirky, graphic-novelish, pulp-noir action flicks rarely come through the sausage machine intact. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
Moshe, who wrote and directed, creates a boldly Expressionistic alternate reality to background this heavy-on-the-action story, but neglects narrative and character beyond the most basic strokes. Full Review
