Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Stylish spy flick with a surprisingly good cast.

Laramie Movie Scope

A non-formula spy thriller without the glitz and romanticism usually associated with this genre.

If there's a small saving grace to this crude thriller, it is the work of Montreal-born director Christian Duguay, who shows flashes of real flare.

Christian Science Monitor

The plot raises the keenly important question of whether professionals who fight evil may be corrupted by the ruthless means they employ; but the movie takes too much pleasure in sensationalistic digressions to explore this issue very thoroughly.

A mediocre action-thriller combination that revolves around a preposterous plan for the same reason that most pot-boilers do; it's just the nature of the beast.

A spy thriller with no thrills, no doubt an interesting cinematic gambit but not one we'd recommend.

If you believe that Elvis still lives or that a millennial invasion of flying saucers is imminent, you might buy the bogus premise.

Great premise is executed with enough style and thrills to keep the piece interesting throughout its close to two-hour runtime.

A film of real finesse, style and intelligence, an espionage thriller of the old school, with some modern technical embellishments.
