...an inherently compelling premise...

An action packed film increasingly offering more and larger dilemmas, director Baltasar Kormakur's film sets itself off for one big payoff...

The film soon traffics in "Babel"-style cultural crises and melodrama. Still, as a tale of parental desperation and the cost of conscience, "Inhale" comes from a thought-provoking place.

The film's final moments are still a sock to the gut, but the central dilemma would have been more acute had some of the details been left to imagination.

A pedestrian thriller that suffers from implausibility, an overbearing musical score and excessive style over substance.

Inhale manages little more than a gesture toward untying its bundled moral knots.

Milks the very real problem of "organ tourism" for all the melodrama and car chases it's worth.

If there's an upside here, it's salt-and-pepper stud Mulroney.

Filmed in a semi-documentary style, it fitfully aspires to moral seriousness.

All of the beatings, betrayals and bitter ironies leave a bad taste in your head.

It takes a while to get there, but Inhale eventually emerges as a tense and morally complex thriller with a devastating twist.

Well-done, exciting and intelligent, that rare thriller with a mind and purpose.

It's neither remotely convincing as true-to-life drama or lurid and propulsive enough to work as exploitation. It's just bad.

How Robert Rodriguez's Machete might have looked played with a straight face ... a silly exploitation thriller that confuses itself for an artful message movie.

Ripped from the headlines and sensationalized for your would-be pleasure, Inhale uses the appalling phenomenon of illegal organ trafficking as the basis for an almost-as-appalling hyperventilated thriller.

The final act hits like a gut-punch.

This is not the feel good movie of the year, but it certainly is a potent flick that will have you thinking.

Particularly disappointing following Korkakur's exceptional Icelandic work, and it leaves you wondering what whoever financed this movie was inhaling.

Illegal organ trafficking is undeniably serious; this tawdry message movie about the subject, however, most unequivocally isn't.
