    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott have wisely set their course by Will Smith, who is sensational in a dramatic role that leans on him to carry a movie without the help of aliens or Big Willie-style jokes for every occasion. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A frustrating film that feels cobbled together. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The picture is solidly crafted, performed to the hilt and full of humor. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    In too much of a hurry to be much of a people picture. And the standoff at the end edges perilously close to the ridiculous, for a movie that's tried so hard to be plausible. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The movie has plenty of high-tech power, spinning out action so explosive you'll hardly notice how preposterous the story is or how cardboard-thin the characters are. show more

    Ron Wells Film Threat

    The strong parts are the rip-offs of "The Conversation." The worst part is the lack of understandable character motivations. show more
