"...The special effects seen here are as perfect and hard-won as [Stallone's] musculature, and that's saying a lot..."New York Times "...CLIFFHANGER lives up to is title as a two-hour rollercoaster ride that never stops from first minute to last. A high-octane action suspenser with thrilling vertiginous footage unlike anything seen before in a feature..."Variety "...It is one of the achievements of the movie to convince us that Lithgow and Stallone are a good match....Many of the most hazardous stunts in this movie were obviously not faked..."Chicago Sun-Times

That's part of what makes THE CAMPAIGN such a tasty, hilarious treat." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] light-hearted lampooning and cartoony, cringe-inducing gags..."Total Film
