  • Critic Reviews
    "Naranjo keeps the action tense but understated; instead of allowing the explosions and shootouts to pile up, he rations them in taut doses."

    Total Film

    "Naranjo has fashioned a riveting thriller..."
    Sight and Sound

    "[A] shockingly powerful thriller....This is a remarkable film with a strong performance in the title role."

    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] superior awareness-raising vehicle..."
    Box Office

    "Shot in long, dynamic takes, often from unconventional vantage points, the film moves at a relentless pace, following a heroine whos been forced into a dangerous situation with very little room to maneuver." -- Grade: A-
