Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Barely diverting.Bruce Diones, New Yorker, 03.30.2014
Smart, tough and a little bit cool, this is an intriguing opening rather than a slam-dunk in its own right, but the cast - and especially Woodley - make it sufficiently diverting to merit a place in the action franchise ranks.Helen OHara, Empire Magazine, 03.30.2014
If one can push past the fact that its world feels a little too familiar, this is a deftly executed slice of teen sci-fi.Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia), 04.07.2014
It's all pretty dumb, and it marks a career low for director Neil Burger, who's made some first-class indie dramas from his own scripts.J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 03.27.2014
