REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..well-acted debut feature from Michael Connors (a former Army captain) is too limited in ambition and scope to satisfy our expectations..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
“..less sure-footed in the filmmaking department, rendering its potentially suspenseful storyline stilted and uncompelling..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 5

“..I was totally invested in Allegiance. I love when a movie creates an inherently dramatic situation and just lets it go. Sometimes plots try too hard. Allegiance just goes where the story takes it..”
by Fred Topel [Crave Online]
1.5 of 4

“..as it stands, the film suffers from Connors's lack of fortitude, be it formally, narratively, or otherwise..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
