Entertainment Weekly
So jaunty, so limber, and so visually self-assured that art peeks through where crap has traditionally made its home.
80
Ferociously inventive.
70
It's very effective.

Chicago Reader
Stylishly realized, but its striking cinematography, nontraditional editing, and consistently reflexive use of genre conceits add up as methodically as a math problem.

Boston Globe
The B-movie is still very much with us.

Dallas Observer
It's just a familiar bore, offering chills and thrills only to those who have never seen a movie before.

You are allowed to come up with a monster we haven't seen before.

New York Daily News
It has a distinctive look but a few too many recycled ideas; better luck on the next crash-landing.

Chicago Tribune
A rather wan version of "Jurassic Park" - a series of setups featuring humans being picked off by bigger, faster and stronger carnivores.

This half-baked sci-fi horror film, filled with jerky, washed-out, highlighted, blurred and toned imagery, is a tiresome experience.
