Rotten: ... an uninspired rearrangement of familiar elements, with little emotional force to justify the entire project.
- Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: While the dialogue is often hackneyed and full of rushed backstory (not enough flashbacks, evidently), the cinematography excels, particularly the chiaroscuro interiors.

Rotten: Flashbacks flounders in the final third.
- Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Meh. Not a dismal film but not very interesting. Daniel Craig does his darned best to save it, but he isn't allowed much room. Olivia Wiliams is always a pleasure to watch... in fact, the performances are quite the only thing I'd give any credit to. The rest is just acceptable: decent cinematography, decent score. Still, the structure is disastrous and the story is aimless in a bad way. Only watchable for a few minutes of Roxy Music lipsynching!! And/or if you want to take a good, good look at Daniel Craig's butt from several angles. Suit yourself.

Fairly routine drama enlivened by a strong cast who brought the tale to life.
