James Berardinelli
This remake replaces suspense with boredom and witty dialogue with lame lines any self-respecting actor should be embarrassed to utter. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
An excellent job of retaining key elements of the original plot but have created a whole new set of characters that gives the film an entirely contemporary feel. Full Review
Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post
This is high-carb filmmaking at its finest. When it's all over, you'll have a knot in your stomach. Full Review
Michael Rechtshaffen
The Hollywood Reporter
While it certainly looks swell thanks to director John Moore's striking visuals, the wings of this rebuilt "Phoenix" have been clipped by generic scripting and a short supply of dramatic tension. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
There's nothing like dumbing down a movie grown-ups love so it can be "sold" to teens who aren't going to go anyway. The savvy flyer will proceed to the gate marked The "Aviator" instead. Full Review
