"What these tough and tough-minded men have to say about Israeli politicians, and the nation's current stance vis à vis its enemies, is stunning and edifying in equal measure."
A.V. Club - 01/31/2013
"The six men have different personalities that suggest varying styles of leadership, but what's remarkable about THE GATEKEEPERS is how they speak in one voice about the moral complexities of their former jobs and their extreme pessimism about the future."
The Rolling Stones - 02/01/2013
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE GATEKEEPERS cuts deeper than any political thriller. It's a powerhouse."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/15/2013
