Time Out says

An adept turn from Murphy as San Francisco hostage negotiator Scott Roper knits together a functional assembly of stock cop-movie elements. This is probably the closest to a genuine dramatic part Murphy's ever played, and his snappy patter is persuasively integrated into Roper's daily routine. It's a tailor-made role, balancing action highlights and the usual bit of lip. Unfortunately, there's little to be done with Randy Feldman's by-the-book plotting. Rapaport's SWAT team rookie proves his mettle as the main man's new partner; Wincott's ruthless jewel thief supplies the villainy; and Ejogo is the hero's vaguely feisty girlfriend-in-peril.
