Great movie and it keeps you guessing right up to the last minute. Good to see more than once.

Okay, this is tough for me because Russell Crowe is my favorite actor. It was just....OK. There, I said it. Crowe did the best he could, but, the story was lame. The protagonist, a cop that shows up half way into the movie seems to have ESP in trailing Crowe's character, always a step behind. Rent it, don't

i kept thinking it was about to get good, ************* boring almost the whole way through.

New York Observer
Speaking of afterthoughts, Olivia Wilde has a bit part as a single mom who unwittingly aids and abets the Brennans in their escape, and Brian Dennehy lurches silently through a number of scenes as John's working-class father. It's jarring to see such big-name actors in such thankless roles. Full Review

The New York Times
There is all kinds of potential here, but Mr. Haggis lacks the Hitchcockian sense of mischief to make it blossom. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It plods along dutifully, with the occasional zigzag into contrivance, tidy coincidence and outright preposterousness. Full Review

About 33 minutes in, I couldn't help but think, if they do another close-up of your watch as it tick, tick, ticks toward another three, I will scream. But honestly, any screaming should be directed at Paul Haggis, who both wrote and directed this mess. Full Review
David Denby
The New Yorker
An accomplished, intelligent, often exciting piece of work, but I can't help wishing that Haggis had figured out how to make it more fun. [22 Nov. 2010, p. 140] Full Review
