Washington Post
The grimness of the movie becomes not only too unbearable, its point is clear about halfway through. After that, everything comes across as redundant retreading of the same perspective. But for atmosphere, great cinematography and eye-opening directness, this movie can't be beat. Full Review

A marvelous film. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Plays like a dislocated version of ''Death in Venice,'' but in a dryer, higher climate that features exponentially more firepower. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
As the film, with its haunting score and inspired use of popular music, builds flawlessly to its resounding conclusion, it is accompanied by a pitch-dark humor that grows out of the sheer absurdity of the city's daily body count. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
The movie itself IS dull, however. The characters never engage our interest, and the relentless violence grows monotonous. Full Review
