Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Don't come looking for a story -- this is a hunt."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Here is yet another video game transferred to film with little enhancement or development."
‑ Loren King, Chicago Tribune
"The novelty of seeing rampaging zombies get shot in the head wears off after 40 minutes or so."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"How do films like these get made for video, let alone the wide theatrical run?"
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Exhibit A in the evidence that no more video games, under any conditions, should be made into movies."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"A derivative shock-horror exercise desperately in need of an IV."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"To properly convey the jaw-dropping shoddiness of this videogame-based 'horror' 'movie,' one must approach what scientists call Absolute Stupid."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"So willfully opposed to everything that decades of refinement have established as cinematic grammar that I am unable to decide if Boll is a genius or just evil."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"This is one of those rare films that truly manages to get by on unintentional laughs, but otherwise dreadful."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"One of the most astonishingly idiotic pieces of entertainment I've ever had the displeasure of sitting through."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Takes out a moviegoer's limbic brain and cerebral cortex. All that's left functioning is the reptilian brain, droning: Kill The Things. Kill The Things..."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger
"Misbegotten horror movie adaptation of the best-selling video games."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"This is the first live-action horror movie based on a video game that I've ever seen in which the game's animation is actually used as a repeated special effect. This is not a good thing."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"There is an extended sequence in which every individual character goes bullet-time, and [Uwe] Boll must think it's so cool just because they're in bullet-time."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"It's so bad it could well go down in history as one of the worst zombie movies ever made."
‑ Jamie Russell, BBC.com
