Gleefully plunges through the silliness with remarkable conviction; there's a thrill to be had. Time and money are rarely wasted in such entertaining and inoffensive ways.

Director Rob Cohen has crafted a bouncing escape yarn stocked with sharp twists and twisted characters.

It's better than you expect going in, but not quite good enough to leave you with more than a vaguely pleasant, vaguely disappointed aftertaste.

You might not want to pay top dollar for The Skulls but at the right price, it delivers.

It's amazing that so many viewers were still seated by the time the end credits began to roll.

The movie's unintentionally played like a comedy all the way.

It is so unbelievably ludicrous that I couldn't help but think that it was intentional despite Rob Cohen's constant attempts to convince me otherwise.

[Cohen] has a knack for making the most ridiculous material suspenseful.

The filmmakers would rather exploit and inflame a class war than deconstruct it.

Through pure mismanagement, The Skulls bungles a rich seam of material.

With large amounts of alcohol and the right friends, it might be a Mystery Science Theater 3000-level hoot. Otherwise, The Skulls is a crime against humanity.

Empty-headed piffle.

In an otherwise boneheaded hour and a half of intrigue and silliness, The Skulls does offer one of the more memorable lines of dialogue in recent movies.
