Mr. Brooks capitalizes on antiseptic, fluorescent interiors, while the score, by David Buckley, nicely accents stress points.

... a tidy, reasonably effective Canadian release in the tradition of Phone Booth, Buried and other tight-squeeze thrillers ... The twist ending would have amused no less a connoisseur than Hitchcock.

Lots of silliness, a few nasty kills, and a cool third act.

ATM's flawed premise leads to a film that lacks the necessary tension and character development to keep the audience engaged in the story. Furthermore, the characters' unwillingness to act on their situation merely makes for a very frustrating film.

[E]ven at the script stage, someone ought to have noticed how many holes were present in this story.

An increasingly ludicrous thriller...

Spatially contained thriller ATM squanders the efforts of a solid young cast, fumbling away viewer sympathy via increasingly harebrained scenarios. Audiences will feel as ripped off as they would be by exorbitant user fees at the namesake devices.

... resorts to incoherent contrivances involving characters who lack basic common sense.

A new thriller with three talented actors nonetheless caught in an ineffective film that stretches to meet its running time and then ends with a final act that destroys suspension of disbelief.

It would probably work better as a parody. The laughs are already built-in.

...a vaguely interesting idea for a scary movie made dull and derivative

This ATM-set horror film fails to dispense sufficient thrills.

Not much about the movie makes sense, though there are occasional schlocky thrills.

Screenwriter Chris Sparling worked in confined spaces to far better effect before with the minimalist Ryan Reynolds thriller"Buried." He must have used his best ideas there.

Even by the most lenient of genre standards, the behavior of the characters in David Brooks's ATM is ludicrous enough to make anyone grind his or her teeth in frustration.

While "ATM" does offer a few jolts, we're paired with bland characters and an underrealized premise.

Perfunctory killings outside, bickering ninnies inside: It's about as riveting as it sounds.

After memorably sealing Ryan Reynolds in a coffin in Buried, screenwriter Chris Sparling's attempts to make a two-ATM vestibule equally claustrophobic are less inspired...

If both good and evil characters don't behave in ways that make sense vis--vis their circumstances, any sense of terror quickly dissipates.
