a crítica

Reader, I gave it my best shot. But with a sinking heart I realized that my efforts were not going to be enough, because this was not a film that could be understood. With style and energy from the actors, with every sign of self-confidence from the director, with pictures that were in focus and dialogue that you could hear, the movie descended into a morass of narrative quicksand. By the end, I wanted to do cruel and vicious things to the screenplay.”
Roger Ebert, Sun-Times
(...) um exercício narrativo magnífico, mascarado de «thriller» de tribunal de guerra. McT, que ao lado de James Cameron lançou as bases do filme de acção contemporâneo, contina a revolver as tripas desse sub-género do «thriller».”
Francisco Ferreira, Premiere
