63
It's earnest, well-intentioned and scrupulously even-handed, in the style of made-for-TV problem movies.
60
The movie's lack of subtlety is countered by an unswerving commitment to impartiality.
50
Starts out as a thriller inspired by that city's 2005 Tube and bus bombings but gets bogged down in a family soap opera.
40
Shoot on Sight has good intentions but winds up a thematically simplistic, dryly plotted and perfunctorily shot melodrama, one of those movies where dialogue is there to categorize people, not parse the complexities of human beings.
40
Variety
A disappointingly stilted melodrama masquerading as a political thriller.
30
Village Voice
As if only made for ignoramuses who get nervous around brown skin, nearly everything on-screen is condescendingly telegraphed--from its plodding dialogue jammed with black-or-white morals to its lingering reaction shots, one-dimensional racists and radicals, obvious mood music, and thriller clichés.
