WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Slant Magazine by

This is action-thriller feather preening, but all the wit in the world can't hide the narrative sprawl that rots from within.

The Playlist by Kevin Jagernauth

While it hardly reinvents the genre, it’s smart, sharp entertainment that meets expectations dead on, and provides a nifty little story told with just enough spark to make the familiar feel fresh.

Village Voice by Nick Schager

Park's direction is sleek and assured, but lacking the dynamism that might help energize a film that—its title notwithstanding—comes off as dully old-school.
