    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It isn't a great movie, but it looks terrific and makes me look forward to the next film by its director, David Ren. He has a good eye. show more

    The A.V. Club

    Too bad the film itself is so derivative, it could have been assembled from Robert Rodriguez's discard bin. show more
