    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    About as weak a movie as can be made without actively trying. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Steven Seagal's acting style is so minimal that we can almost believe a script that tells us that his character's near-death experience left him flatlined for 22 minutes. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Ray Conlogue The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A shoot-'em-up for cynical times. Its only asset is Seagal himself, and frankly, he's is getting a bit past it. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    What we get, while rarely boring, is a succession of senseless scenes bathed in formula-thriller blue light, full of blazing Uzis, exploding helicopters and sentimental male bonding. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Has the cheesy, deadened feel of a straight-to-cable film. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Stupid. Illogical. Simplistic. Pandering. And those are its good points. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It goes through the motions of an action thriller, but there is a deadness at its center, a feeling that no one connected with it loved what they were doing. show more
