What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Hokey spy drama full of plot holes.
James Berardinelli For those who appreciate this sort of film, however, it's an engaging way to spend about 90 minutes.
C. Fuchs Good in the first half with diminishing returns in the second.
Tomatometer Slick and well acted, Closed Circuit unfortunately never quite works up a full head of steam, with a plot that's alternately predictable and full of holes.
