    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Apr 18, 2012

    SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content.I sure hope that Psylocke isn't using Fantomex to fill the emotional void she is feeling after first losing Warren and then having to kill her brother.That would be terrible. There are some truly great moments in this issue. The pacing is great, the story and art are equally fantastic, and it's a story that I find really interesting and compelling. Remender makes you care about these characters, and he really brings them to life off of the pages -- you feel emotionally invested in their actions and in whatever will happen to them next.

    In short, yes, they are once again killing it. If you're not reading this book, I don't know what to tell you, other than "fix that soon." Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ken Boehm Apr 22, 2012

    Despite everything involved this issue, it was one of the lighter stories told, as we get ready for another arc that promises another big death. And you know what, with Remender writing, it feels like it will actually mean something. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a really solid issue of the series, and a welcome change of pace after the odd arc that preceded it. I'm really excited to go into the next story, The Final Execution, and if you haven't been reading UXF just yet then this issue or the next might be a great jumping on point. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - DeShawn Apr 21, 2012

    Phil Noto provides us with a visually astonishing cover of a giant Iceman looking over X-Force battling his minions. Dubbed "The Unkillable Kill", AoA Iceman is one of the most powerful mutants to cross over from the Age of Apocalypse timeline, anm this cover does a good job in showing how the odds are stacked heavily against X-Force.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Apr 20, 2012

    And more than anything other part of this issue, I have to applaud Phil Noto. He's the man who brought this series back for me with a single book. His art is crisp, clean, consistent and high quality from start to finish. The team is expressive by his hand, Betsy is cold and calculating and her brother is positively simmering with rage. This is a great issue for any lapsed readers to jump back on board the UXF train because the art is up to par with the script and this book is firing on all cylinders again. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - shathley Q Apr 25, 2012

    This isn't about cold, clinical surgical strikes. This is about betrayal. The betrayal that brought Robert Drake to this point of being a psychopathic killer, and the betrayal of Kurt Wagner's ideals, necessary to undertake this indefensible action. So by the end of the issue, we really have worked our way back to The Iceman Cometh…. This really is a story about necessary illusions, and the question, after all of this unsanctioned life-taking, can the members of X-Force ever really return to the more honor-bound ideals of the X-Men?

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 18, 2012

    Phil Noto's style is something of a bridge between the sleek, textured work of Jerome Opena and the loose, frenetic work of Greg Tocchini. Luckily, Noto's work has the clarity Tocchini's lacked. Marvel could do far worse than bringing Noto back for a future story arc. Read Full Review
