He said, “At a runtime circling the two-hour mark, it remains light on its feet even in its down moments.” Kirk Honeycutt at the Hollywood Reporter gave it a C. He stated, “Logic and plausibility take a holiday in this nonstop actioner that counts on stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz to sell the nonsense.”
Kenneth Turan at the Los Angeles Times gave it a B. He said, it was “the most entertaining made-for-adults studio movie of the summer, and one of the reasons it works at all is the great skill and commitment Cruise brings to the starring role.”
Lou Lumenick at the New York Post gave it a C-. He said, it was “one of those movies that requires you to accept that every single time a character is presented with a choice, he or she will make the worst and most inexplicable one.”
A.O. Scott from the New York Times gave it a bad D-. He stated,it was “loud, seemingly interminable, and altogether incoherent.” James Berardinelli at Reelviews gave it a B.
