The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
Christian Slater and Selma Blair head a solid cast that Harvey Kahn directs with cool efficiency as the tension steadily rises with every passing minute.

L.A. Weekly - F. X. Feeney
Although the dialogue initially flakes with awkward exposition, writer Ruth Epstein and director Harvey Kahn have fashioned a riveting thriller full of good scares and learned, muckraking insight into the global labyrinth of oil and politics.

Variety - Robert Koehler
Never entirely convincing yet always watchable.

The New York Times - Stephen Holden
It's when The Deal leaves the corporate offices behind that the story turns into a bogus, convoluted mess. Once the Russian mafia, personified by Angie Harmon playing an evil seductress with a terrible Russian accent, rears its head, the ballgame is over.

The A.V. Club - Keith Phipps
If Epstein and Kahn's plot mechanics were as fresh as the headlines from which they borrow, they might have been on to something.

The Deal (2005)



A political thriller steeped in illegal oil trading, the Russian Mafia, and governmental cover-ups.
