Reception[edit]

Several reviewers complained about character development that leads nowhere and excessive attention lavished on newscasts pertaining to negotiations in Israel, the importance of these issues characters might be revisited in a sequel. Kauffman describes these side stories as, "...the other two legs of this filmic trinity." However, Kauffman does note that the shared history between the characters, Shane and Eve, are is not adequately explained.[2] Conversely, Victor Medina's review for cinelix mentions an additional nine cut scenes from the Blu-ray disc, that would have provided more character development, but would have also slowed down the action.[3]
