Rotten: a big, loud mess that loses its few good ideas in a morass of convoluted storytelling that it has, sadly, confused with stylish innovation
- Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: Neveldine and Taylor simply spray their venom across the screen with little vision, once again making a friendly trip to the multiplex feel like undeserved torture.
- Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: Directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor were responsible for the delirious Crank and Crank 2 but left the magic behind.

Much better than i expected. good action, lots of killing but def think something was left on the editing room floor. Parts of this movie just seemed very disjointed.

I liked it. It's not a good movie but I was entertained. This isn't as good as the crank movies though. This movie was also really wired but not really in a good way. I had fun watching it but this definitely isn't for everyone. Grade: B-

Such a goofy action movie. It reminds me of Death Race 2000 and The Running Man, only with a huge video game influence thrown in. The parallels to The Sims and first person shooters are really interesting and I wish that criticism would've set in a bit more. The look of the movie was perfect for what they were going for, it felt like the virtual reality from hell. While some of it is just a little bit too much to swallow at times, this is undoubtedly fun.
