REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Hurricane Katrina has already been pretty thoroughly mined for documentaries and fictional stories, but "Hours" holds your interest nonetheless..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..even an action packed finale can't rescue this dramatically thin exercise in one-man showmanship. At 96 minutes, "Hours" only seems like it's hours longer than that..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..most of the movie elicits tense empathy, which builds to a genuinely nerve-wracking sense of dread..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
