This from the NY Daily News.
Some quotes: Most offered only lukewarm praise or shrugs of indifference.

Others laughed or jeered at parts of the nearly 2-1/2-hour thriller and dumped on star Tom Hanks’ performance as well as what they called a potboiler script. … "Nothing really works. It’s not suspenseful. It’s not romantic. It’s certainly not fun," according to Stephen Schaefer of the Boston Herald. … The Cannes audience of critics – arguably the toughest in the world – clearly grew restless as the movie dragged on to a long sequence of anticlimactic revelations. …"I kept thinking of the Energizer Bunny, because it kept going and going and going, and not in a good way," said James Rocchi, a film critic for CBS 5 television in San Francisco. …One especially melodramatic line uttered by Hanks drew prolonged laughter and some catcalls, and the audience continued to titter for much of the film’s remainder.
I am going to rush out and see this one!
