    Jaime N. Christley Slant Magazine

    After a few turns in the modest narrative, an unlikely sense of structural resilience begins to emerge. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The film's headlong momentum streamrolls over all our questions, and we're carried along by the expertly choreographed action. Even after everything seems over, it isn't, and the last minutes are particularly satisfying. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Hectic and harebrained, this galloping French thriller tosses a potpourri of plot points - crooked cops, sleazy gangsters, stolen drugs and an underage hostage - into a packed-to-the-gills nightclub, and stirs. Repeatedly. show more
