Slant Magazine
The film is a sporadically entertaining, modestly ambitious shoot 'em up that frequently succumbs to spelling out its subtext. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Though the director includes a few brief humdingers — a fight that involves a Rube Goldberg–ish tangle of wires; some munitions-fueled mayhem in a farmhouse — it’s not enough to keep viewers from wishing they were thumbing through a John le Carré novel instead. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The story feels fairly perfunctory — not to mention unnecessarily knotty — but the well-connected leads do their best to ground it. And while this one falls far short of the “Bourne” films that serve as an influence, the intense action scenes consistently deliver some solid genre jolts. Full Review

Variety
The Berlin File boasts knockout action setpieces that provide an impressive big-budget showcase for Ryoo Seung-wan's technical smarts. Full Review
Nicolas Rapold
The New York Times
As soon as The Berlin File takes flight with its exhilarating action set pieces, memories of any muddles evaporate amid the tension and vivid engagement with settings, from courtyards to fields. Full Review
