  • Resourceful, Los Angeles-shot low-budgeter is solidly assembled, with Xander Lott's unobtrusive yet unsettling score a plus.

    October 17, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Brand devotes so much running time to fear-mongering and grotesque stereotypes that a last-ditch effort at moral ambiguity and a critique on muckraking barely register.

    October 16, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Even the failure to find a persuasive closing note doesn't detract from Mr. Oyelowo's riveting performance.

    October 16, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Brand works hard at verisimilitude on the plane and in the film's many intercut cable-news segments, but it's hard to achieve realism in a mode that's so completely contrived.

    October 14, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Moments of violence punctuate this rather overly talkative drama quite effectively, but it's dismal, almost gimmicky cinematography cheapens the film.

    September 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Setting itself apart from a crowded field of Somali pirate movies is a goal "Default" reaches for, but in choosing meaningless action over all else it's never achieved.
