Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's final minutes erupt in a display of politicized melodrama so hysterical that it could almost be taken for camp if it wasn't so noxious."
‑ Sam Sweet, L.A. Weekly
"The plot is intriguing -- it took me some time to really figure out what the ending meant -- but the execution is too much like Silent Hill, i.e., like a video game."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"The imagination in some of these sequences is reminiscent of the likes of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Terry Gilliam, which is why it's a shame the story isn't on the same level."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson,
"Re-cycle is a feast for CGI geeks but famine for auds requiring narrative and character development."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"The first thing that strikes you is the beauty and clarity of the images (fabulous transfer to DVD, almost like HD), the brilliantly effective use of music and the artful use of the camera"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Amounts to a monstrous, CGI-disfigured pro-life tract."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Re-cycle...seeks to discover previously unexplored pathways sheltering unfamiliar frights. If, in the end, the trip rambles aimlessly through some dull patches, you have to admire the Pang's effort to boldly go somewhere new."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
