Rotten: A slick, cat-and-mouse thriller that unfolds with sharply-diminishing plausibility.
- Allan Hunter, Screen International, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: This film would make a perfect commercial thriller for James Spader and Rob Lowe were it still 1994.
- Brian Holcomb, CinemaBlend.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: Despite a cast that includes double-crossers Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams caught in the middle, the film is a yawn.
- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Friday, April 25, 2008
An accountant finds himself enmeshed in a blackmail scheme and a mysterious list of liaisons. This is just your run-of-the-mill, hackneyed thriller. There aren't any surprises, and the few moments of lascivious fun aren't enough to lure anybody except a twelve-year-old who has never seen a boob before. Even the performances by Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams feel phoned in, and Hugh Jackman has never been worse. Overall, there are worse films, but there is nothing that sets this film apart from its peers.

Like a Youtube video farce of a thriller, but with highly recognizable faces, this one plays an old game of bait and switch and hopes you'll play along and pretend to be surprised. I doubt you will. Although very stylized looking, ultimately an empty exercise.
