    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    His (George Clooney) rugged good looks spell movie star, but his body language spells Don Knotts, without the wit. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It looks great. The technical credits are impeccable, and Clooney and Kidman negotiate assorted dangers skillfully. But it's mostly spare parts from other thrillers. show more

    Barbara Shulgasser San Francisco Examiner

    The chief terrorist is played nicely with war-weary desperation by Marcel Iures, a Romanian actor with the sucked-in cheeks and ennui of a Jeremy Irons. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Isn't much better or worse than the average James Bond movie, except, of course, that it doesn't have the cars, the gadgets, the girls, or Bond himself. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    The essential spark of surprise is missing. The mechanics of ''breathless'' suspense are blanketed by an atmosphere of creeping caution. show more

    Elvis Mitchell The New York Times

    Culminates in a show-stopping action sequence set in midtown Manhattan, directed by Ms. Leder with crisp economy and furious energy. show more

    This is a GREAT Movie that has been far under rated. The possibility of such events depicted are Scary and Highly Probable in the near future!!! This is a Visionary Account of what will happen in our lifetimes. White Knuckle Thriller throughout the ENTIRE Movie. Highly Recommended by a True Movie Lover, Don Boske Jr.
