Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
The film might have worked as a taut, topical corporate intrigue thriller; instead, for all its ambition, it's just a routine mystery, despite a solid performance by Christian Slater. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
If Slater were a bigger star, this self-serving vehicle would have been a hoot, a surefire DVD attraction for any Camp Night in the living room, not to mention a shoo-in for one of the 10 worst movies of 2005. Full Review
F. X. Feeney
L.A. Weekly
Although the dialogue initially flakes with awkward exposition, writer Ruth Epstein and director Harvey Kahn have fashioned a riveting thriller full of good scares and learned, muckraking insight into the global labyrinth of oil and politics. Full Review
Jami Bernard
New York Daily News
The story's unnecessary and unconvincing Russian spies are out of "Rocky & Bullwinkle," but Blair is quite enjoyable as a sassy, capable idealist. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
If Epstein and Kahn's plot mechanics were as fresh as the headlines from which they borrow, they might have been on to something. Full Review
