Charlotte Observer
A taut, consistently surprising political thriller with a sting in its tail.
88
New York Post
A triumph of low-budget filmmaking.

Chicago Reader
Foreigners who argue that Americans are Neanderthal savages can point to this movie as persuasive evidence.
50
A tense geopolitical thriller that leaves a curiously bad aftertaste.
50
Probably serves some useful purpose, despite its ham-fisted preachiness and mediocre acting.
50
USA Today
There's nothing super about the movie, aside from a loopiness that affords it a certain guilty-pleasure cachet.
40
Steadfastly conventional.
25
San Francisco Examiner
Ludicrously written and appallingly directed by ex-film critic Rod Lurie, seems to pride itself on the fact that it never (ever) leaves the greasy-spoon milieu in which the president and his staff are trapped by heavy snowfall.
25
Chicago Tribune
To say this movie's premise is bonkers is putting it mildly.
10
Dallas Observer
In short, let nothing deter you from staying home.
