What the Critics say

Herman Eloff quote iconExceptional acting by an outstanding cast is what clinches the deal and ultimately transforms this film into an absolute cinematic delight. Once enthralled by the storyline and embedded within the fictional world so masterfully crafted, the viewer becomes part of a gratifying journey that ends with pure delectation. If there was ever any doubt that there is heart within this robust tale of death and destruction, rest assured that you’ll find it radiating from its soul-stirring finale.

Jim Judy quote iconThe chemistry between Reilly and Phoenix as the siblings and Gyllenhaal and Ahmed as the unlikely duo is good, and the Tarantino-esque dialogue lifts the overall effort above the usual genre trappings and expectations. While it’s certainly not for all audiences, I can say I was engaged from start to finish thanks to the unique drawings and subsequent performances of the main characters.
