L.A. Weekly
Flaws, double standards, strange detours and all, this is still the most entertaining WWE release to date.

The A.V. Club
The film keeps adding layers of superfluous nonsense to its plot until all that's left is glowering ultra-violence and a whole lot of missed opportunities.
38
There are stretches when it becomes tedious and insufferably self important. There's even a late scene in which the movie turns preachy.
33
A sloppy, indifferent action movie with a sadistic edge and a sour hypocrisy.
30
Variety
Picture aims for nonstop thrill ride, but for all its brainless brawn, it has plenty of stops and few real thrills.
30
It's hard to imagine an audience that won't break up in laughter at this bewildering mixed message: Enjoy this movie, but you really shouldn't be watching it.
25
Chicago Tribune
A real stinker. It doesn't have the courage of its own bad taste, or that of its villain.
25
This is the worst kind of movie, one that insults its audience by purporting to condemn violence while simultaneously reveling in it.
20
The Hollywood Reporter
D-grade "Running Man" ripoff.

Wiper doesn't exploit the possibilities of his setting, so the only conflict is the fighting, the only suspense comes from waiting for the next character to pop out from behind a tree and do something possibly interesting.
