Critics’ choice

Forsaking sensationalism for sober, procedural storytelling, the film examines the toxic effects of the Kennedy mystique on a handful of people involved in a fatal car crash in 1969. – AO Scott, The NYTimesNOMMER 37Far more substantial than a run-of-the-mill Hitchcock homage, it’s richly satisfying on its own terms as a singularly crafty and strikingly well-crafted thriller that signals the arrival of a promising filmmaking talent. – Joe Leydon, VarietyBREAKING INGabrielle Union is appealing, and Billy Burke’s calm simmer is fun, but otherwise this violent home invasion thriller is a dull pack of clichés; not one idea hasn’t been used before in 100 other movies. – Jeffrey M Anderson, Common Sense MediaOVERBOARDLazy, stupid and unfunny, this gender-swapped remake of the 1980s screwball comedy seems to have been made without anyone caring at all. – Jeffrey M Anderson,Common Sense Media
