4.5 of 5

“..was supposed to be a dud, but it's aimed in the right place, packed with brains and heart, and explosively fun..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..too much uninteresting dialogue about “mysterious” aliens to wade through – plus, oodles of nauseating jingoism and slow-motion heroism..”
by Adam Litovitz [Globe and Mail]
“..the screenplay, by Jon and Erich Hoeber, goes through such extraordinary narrative contortions in order to justify an allusion to the game's familiar grid-work board and guessing-game strategy..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
