Reviews


  • Andrew Pulver (Guardian)

    The cinematic equivalent of one of those chunky special-forces-porn airport novels.

  • Paul Byrnes (Sidney Morning Herald)

    Wahlberg isn't as confident or credible as a tough guy with a mantle of regret.

  • Wendy Ide (Times (UK))

    Ultimately, it's just a vigilante picture with ideas above its station.

  • Jamie Russell (BBC.com)

    It's no masterpiece, but it's way better than the usual big gun/small brain fare.
