"The first half of the movie is brilliant, but the pacing completely falls apart in the second. It feels rather tacked-on and phoned in. Really could benefit from a re-edit. "

"It's an 80s action movie, but better. The screenplay is ridiculously weak and to describe the characters as tired clichées would be an understatement. But the camera work is the best I have ever seen in an action flick and the Benghali setting is refreshing. Just switch your brain off, grab a beer, and enjoy."

"This is the TV equivalent of an airport thriller. It's great to kill some time, but ultimately forgetable. It takes a pretty big up-front commitment to suspend your disbelief, but it largely stays on track afterwards and doesn't throw any curveballs that take you out of the universe. Production value is high, but the action choreography is the typical American fast cut fare."

"I spent a lot of time thinking about why this didn't work for me. The cinematography is great, the supporting staff is fantastic and although I think both DiCaprio and Crowe feel slightly off in their roles, their performances are great. The problem is that we never spend enough time with any of the very intriguing side characters to truly develop a connection. This would have worked great as a mini series. As a movie, it is too rushed."
