‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Holy God, somebody showed me this depressing on my birthday long ago. I decided afterwards they didn't like me very much."

"ethereal and memorable"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A low-key and unsettling look at one possible armageddon."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Mile still packs a wallop, especially when everything goes to hell and our lovers are forced to confront their mortality. The gorgeous, unbearable feeling of doom that De Jarnatt evokes is, well, miraculous."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Ridiculous nuclear holocaust tale"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"Surprisingly good little film, if too bleak to be any fun."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Undeservedly overlooked"
