Ronan Doyle’s review:
Am I missing something, or is Fincher just one of those directors who can make any perfectly decent movie and have it hailed as great? This is a solidly entertaining experience throughout with plenty in the way of thematic meat, but it's overlong and underdone. Really well made and a pleasure to watch, though alongside similarly plotted films it hardly stands out very much. I can't understand some of the acclaim it's attracted, but I'd be happy to watch it again.
