The press says: 

  •  "The French Connection, Heat and Jean-Pierre Melville are all there in the mix, while the Tahrir Square protest backdrop recalls the way the Rodney King riots were used in another rotten police saga, Dark Blue." Lee Marshal for SCREENDAILY
  • "Blending procedural thrills with politicized documentary, this gripping import (...) should attract sizable domestic interest following its premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival." Nick Schager for VARIETY
  • "A searingly fatalistic, slow-burn thriller." Justin Lowe for THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • "It's a captivating story with a hell of an ending." Kaitlyn Booth for BLEEDING COOL
