Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
The best movie Steven Seagal never made. Except that Statham, while just as marked for death, is harder to kill.

By Ray Conlogue
This is a film where there isn't the slightest doubt about the dramatic outcome. But the marketing will be a cliffhanger.

Cut above this genre's usual industrial sludge, even when the chops and kicks are too fast to follow.

By James Berardinelli
This balls-to-the-walls action/adventure makes the average James Bond film look like something by Eric Rohmer. It’s high rent Steven Segal - fights, explosions, and more fights, but with a flair.

Too much action brings the movie to a dead standstill. Why don't directors understand that? Why don't they know that wall-to-wall action makes a movie less interesting -- less like drama, more like a repetitive video game?

Muddles through as a film so uninterested in character, it doesn't bother assigning names to them.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
That the movie becomes silly isn't necessarily a problem, but it also becomes tiresome, degenerating into a series of martial arts interludes -- everyone unaccountably leaves his guns at home.
