Wall Street Journal
Despite the righteous indignation that is so clearly fueling the film--much of its $8 million budget was raised from off-island Taiwanese--the movie is a sturdy entry in the paranoid-thriller genre, and raises some interesting issues about our relationship with the country we used to call China. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
A decent political thriller set in Taiwan with the requisite Western-market-friendly lead and a determinedly pro-independence message embedded in a formulaic but diverting tale of intrigue and oppression. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
A mostly pedestrian political thriller whose basis in true events adds little to the film's excitement or entertainment value. Full Review
Janice Page
Boston Globe
As a political thriller, Formosa Betrayed has enough suspense and intrigue to pull viewers along willingly. It doesn't try too hard, which is refreshing. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Only viewers wondering if James Van Der Beek has finally outgrown "Dawson's Creek" will be at all satisfied by this dreadful police procedural that contains good history lessons and bad TV-cop-show drama. Full Review
