The Hollywood Reporter
George Nofi pulls off a relative rarity in his feature film debut by creating a genuinely romantic fantasy suspense thriller.
80
By keeping the pace quick, the explanation light and the characters strong, Nolfi achieves the near-impossible: a film puzzle you won't mind leaving unexplained.

Boxoffice Magazine
The action, fantasy and suspense elements are all highly enjoyable, but if the romance didn't work this movie would fall apart.
75
An enjoyable piece of hokum – your basic doom-laden parable of metaphysical sci-fi mind control, only with a surprise romantic sparkle.

Orlando Sentinel
This "Inception" meets "Made in Heaven" by way of "They Live" is also the screwiest movie Matt Damon has been in since, what, "Dogma?"

Variety
Its fun first hour soon gives way to a leaden, expository approach that unwisely favors emotional stakes over speculative-fiction smarts.
60
You outsmart the movie way too soon.
50
Strange, empty movie, a metaphysical Cracker Jack box without a prize in its empty-calorie depths.

Village Voice
The so-called Plan is derailed!
40
The doughy Damon and aristocratic Blunt don't match up physically, and they never get any Hepburn-Tracy rhythms going that might create some current.
