“..the movie rendered unwatchable by its split devotion between refreshingly physical wreckage and uniquely digital ways of capturing it..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]
“..failing to understand that a chase scene is only exciting for those who care about someone, anyone, who's part of the action, the movie produces untold broken axles but no thrills..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
