Chicago Sun-Times
This is one of the best movies of the year.

New York Post
Glossy, big-budget thriller that qualifies as the season's biggest and most rewarding surprise.
75
Entertainment Weekly
Teasing drama whose relentless good-deed/bad-deed reversals are just interesting enough to make a sinner like me pray for an even more interesting, less symmetrical, less obviously cross-shaped creation.
75
Modern film noir done with flair and commitment.
75
If it's not conventionally speedy, it is almost always gripping.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Seething, searing tragedy of unmannerliness.
75
A thrilling ride but also a thoughtful one, it's a movie that does manage to do more good than bad by the end of the day.
75
A refreshingly novel ride.

Rolling Stone
What these guys do for revenge during one hellish day in the Big Apple makes the panic room look like Barney's toy box. The film itself goes off the deep end way before the end credits.
60
Wall Street Journal
A curious combination of strident preachment and smartly farcical thriller; it's heavy-handed and light-footed at the same time.
38
New York Daily News
Gets too caught up in its escalating violence and strained-to-bursting moral subtexts. It's the blood of souls drenching the screen, and it's a hideous sight to behold.
