Reviews

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | April 09, 2008

I found it pretty entertaining, as well as provocative in some of its comments about contemporary life.

Peter Travers Rolling Stone | May 12, 2001

The flaws don't cripple what is a fiercely funny, exciting and provocative detective story about the crimes of corporate culture -- crimes that transcend race and geography.

Hal Hinson Washington Post | January 01, 2000

Connery is heaven, and so is the movie.

Desson Thomson Washington Post | January 01, 2000

A thoroughly gratifying prestige thriller, thanks to riveting suspense and two brilliant stars.
