  • Reception

    Elizabeth Kerr of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a mixed review, saying: "Technically the film is competent if unremarkable and the (occasionally wooden) cast does what it can with the material, which forces them all to swing wildly between melodramatic thriller mode and standard action hero antics". Meanwhile, Mark Schilling of The Japan Times gave it 2 out of 5 stars, saying: "Even stranger is the climax, which features a lengthy speech that makes Charlie Chaplin's famous peroration in The Great Dictator seem like a model of compression and restraint. Chaplin at least had the excuse of railing against Nazism. Sakamoto and Fukui are simply guilty of equating real-world politics with high school speech contests."
