Another in a long line of middling movies for Travolta.Village VoiceJune 12, 2001
The story ... is just what fills in the gaps between slow-motion fireballs, Matrix-style frozen mayhem, and Halle Berry's notoriously undraped breasts.Rolling StoneJune 12, 2001
The sleazy script by Skip Woods ... slimes the actors.Washington PostJune 08, 2001
An action opera designed to elicit Beavis and Butt-head-level appreciation.Washington PostJune 08, 2001
Nobody really cares about the plot, least of all the filmmakers.Toronto StarJune 08, 2001
The kind of movie where glass-smashing in slow motion serves the same function as extended guitar solos did in '70s rock concerts.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Cool explosions are the best thing here.ColeSmithey.comJuly 21, 2009
Good pacing and intriguing characters drive the overflowing testosterone blitz to an above average level of fun.EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 01, 2006
A techno thriller that suffers from narrative shortcomings but is elevated by the star power of John Travolta and Halle Berry and particularly Aussie actor Hugh Jackman who's bound to become a Hollywood star.Reel Film ReviewsAugust 01, 2003
Strap yourself in for the ride and enjoy.Cincinnati EnquirerFebruary 07, 2003
It calls itself a 'thriller,' apparently because it is loaded with pointless machinations that pile up into a tortured wreck of narrative desperation.Film ThreatDecember 08, 2002
Some explosions, a lot of techno, two X-Men, and a Sweat-hog.
