Access reviews at Metacritic.
“The performances are strong and the story is absorbing; a smart diversion for adult attention spans.” – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“As any fan of the Bourne films can attest, screenwriter Gilroy is a master at laying out a twisty plot, and Anderson directs with the kind of verve that enables almost all the twists to hit us with the force of surprise.” – Kenneth Turan, The L.A. Times
