From The Dispatch:
It seems lost amid its own attempt to be something it's not — a Tony Scott film. Scott has made some substandard films ("Domino") and some terrific ones ("Man on Fire"), but nothing he's ever done could be classified as dull.

Instead, it plays it safe at every turn, and the result is a film that just can't compete with its own clear influences.Click here to read my full review.
