"...Frankenheimer is the siege engine that keeps the REINDEER action flying on all cylinders..."
New York Times - 02/25/2000
"...Mr. Frankenheimer has an entertaining bent for swift, scary violence with 1960's cracks and reverbs on the soundtrack for an old school reference point....The vividness of the expert cast makes the movie feel lived-in..."
