Reviews

Salon - Charles Taylor
Director Brian De Palma is having too much fun zipping around curves and hitting the accelerator to slow down. He's a supremely confident engineer, and if you're game enough to make a jump for it and hold on, he offers the giddy excitement of watching the ground rush by beneath your dangling feet.

Washington Post - Desson Thomson
Exciting, smart and enormously enjoyable.

The New York Times - Stephen Holden
A sleek, whooshingly entertaining update of the vintage television series.
75
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The bottom line on a film like this is, Tom Cruise looks cool and holds our attention while doing neat things that we don't quite understand--doing them so quickly and with so much style that we put our questions on hold, and go with the flow.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
This movie isn't a disaster, but, all things considered, there's little reason to make it a high priority for theatrical viewing.
