Despite the tape's commitment to keeping our nerves on edge and offers an entertaining experience. A hot-air thriller that rises just the right way.

Herbig has been able to print a very American ribbon, a very tense thriller with various freedoms regarding true facts.

It is based almost exclusively on the sum of a long series of situations of circumstantial tension, a few well-drawn, and many, of a worn-out originality.

La Razón

A drama with a certain air and aspirations for American thriller and a pernicious gelides for the story, terrible on the other hand (...) even if the setting of the film knows however to convey to us a suffocating reality.
