Washington is too caviar of a presence for this reasonably compelling, standard-issue thriller.

Denzel Washington's newest thriller is a lackluster piece; it's all been done before, and far better by others.

...the dreary formulaic plot supported by scattered pedestrian performances doesn't reinforce the distinctive urgency and edginess this uneven crime caper valiantly tries to promote.

In spite of decent performances from the main cast, Carl Franklin's thriller is listless and very weak.
