Irish Times

There's a lovely frisson between Bean and Rampling that makes you think what James Bond and M could be.

Radio Times

The film certainly has ambition and there are some memorable fight scenes, but it also lacks the extra oomph that could have done for Bean's action-movie career what Taken did for Liam Neeson's.

Digital Spy

It's perhaps one credibility-straining twist too many for the film, which up until then does a solid job of aping slicker, bigger-budgeted Hollywood thrillers.

The ambition is laudable even if the execution isn't as smooth or detailed as it might have been.

Daily Mirror [UK]

A slick action drama with a strong cast, including Tuppence Middleton, Charlotte Rampling and Michelle Ryan, that delivers in terms of violence, gunplay and conspiracy thrills.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

It's a competent, conventional thriller, but there's something suspiciously unbalanced going on here.

Little White Lies

With a better script editor, this could have been a character-piece comparable, maybe, to Showtime's Homeland.

Matthew Turner

Trashily enjoyable thriller that puts its low budget to impressive use and scrapes a pass thanks to strong performances and some bone-crunching action scenes...

Kim Newman
Empire Magazine

A brutal, unsparing thriller, if a little on the long side.

Birmingham Mail

As a rather far-fetched work of faction, Cleanskin left me feeling rather grubby about the world that we live in - and not entertained.

You couldn't ever accuse Hadi Hajaig's film of being one-sided: it has two, both of them stupid.

As if we don't have enough gullible folk believing 7/7 and 9/11 conspiracy theories already, this poor thriller comes along to popularise the paranoia.

Cleanskin has Charlotte Rampling dying, spiritually at least, on a bench. It can be contagious.

Peter Bradshaw

It plays like a lad-mag fantasy of counterterrorist work, juxtaposing mediocre action sscenes with a lot of deadly serious Islamist rhetoric.

Daily Express

Could have been a British 24 but is undone by terrible plotting, implausibility and lack of excitement.

At times, it's almost as funny as Four Lions. The trouble is, it's not meant to be comedy.

Plodding, somewhat misbegotten, and never slick enough to sweep us along.
