It's scary. It's well-acted. It's filmed with a degree of flash and elegance.

Los Angeles Times
A moderately diverting thriller that builds suspense and entertains effectively... strongest selling point is Charlize Theron.

New York Post
Could have been written by a computer programmed to cannibalize previous sci-fi films.

Depp moves through the film suavely and imperturbably, never letting the particulars bog him down.

Salon.com
Far from unwatchable. It's not a good movie but at least, on its own schlocky terms, the story makes sense (which is a lot more than you can say for "The Sixth Sense").

Variety
Aggressively stylish but dramatically flaccid.

The finished product is as predictably dull as a newborn's soft spot.

Langorous and oddly detached... a mess.

L.A. Weekly
This hypersleek film is surprisingly lax for its first half... The ending is dumb.

San Francisco Examiner
Stinks from the Earth to the moon.
