Lee Landman: Chillingly realistic, a must for anyone who lives in Cape Town.

Oliver Lopes: Found it to be disjointed, no storyline, no reason for the terrorist activities. Seemed to be just a showcase for the actors.

Rowan McDonald: Bruce Willis in one of his more quieter roles, but the movie will scare any Capetonian.
