    San Francisco Chronicle

    Less a new Japanese movie than a series of scenes from old American ones, most notably "The Terminator" and "ET." show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Overwrought and overlong, Returner might been a rousing B-movie -- had it not been hamstrung by Yamazaki's bigger pretensions. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Hovering between "Last Action Hero" and "E.T.," this sci-fi extravaganza is bookended with violence but has some gentle moments in between. show more
