The film received mostly negative reviews when it was released direct-to-DVD in 2008. "The story is unevenly pieced together through cheap flashbacks, leaving the audience in the dark for nearly two-thirds of the film until, finally, things start to come together, sort of. But by then, sadly, it's too little, too late. The mystery is lost in a sea of weary ideas and well-worn plot devices," said one reviewer for IGN.
