Director Kathryn Bigelow comes closer than any other filmmaker to turning movies into a virtual reality trip.
Jack Kroll, Newsweek  full review
 
Once the premise has lost its promise, and Fiennes's brave attempts at characterization are sacrificed to pseudo-dazzle, everything appears awfully humdrum and, yes, distinctly dated.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail  full review
 
Undeniably thrilling and troubling.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
 
Though the creators of Strange Days may well be interested in its dramatic and thematic elements, they do not have the same touch for these moments as they do for camera pyrotechnics.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Bigelow is so enamored of high-tech thrills, and so mesmerized by the violence she seeks to condemn, that her efforts at 11th-hour moralizing seem limp and halfhearted.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
It's big, explosive entertainment and, although not directed by Cameron, is very much in the vein we've come to expect from him.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews  full review
 
It's fascinating the way Bigelow is able to suggest so much of VR's impact (and dangers) within a movie - a form of VR that's a century old.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
