Here's what many critics thought of this Jodie Foster movie...
- Foster convinces as the petrified victim turned vengeful killer and Howard is superb as the world weary detective. Together, they just about managed to save a frequently ham-fisted script. -- Sky Movies
- The only thing that could have made this movie better is if it were revealed at the end that our leading lady was really a man. But we've been down that path before. -- Film School Rejects
- Foster's pistol-packing turn as an avenging dark angel nearly sustains director Neil Jordan's grim vigilante drama through a string of implausibilities and occasionally trite psychological framing devices, with deft support from Terrence Howard. -- Variety
- Even the masterful Jodie Foster can't manage to raise this sluggish vigilante yarn above other movies of its ilk. -- Hollywood.com
