Consensus: Bad acting, poor CGI and clunky script mean this sci-fi thriller is lacking in all departments including the thrills.

The film plays like an extended-cut scene from an Xbox 360 shooter, but heroic sons of bitches mixed with exploding torsos at humanity's darkest hour sometimes equals splattery fun.

Definitely isn't setting any precedence, but it's serviceable and fun.

The computer-generated imagery falls short when it comes to supplying the gore for the fight scenes: the bright splashes of red look almost literally Photoshopped onto the settings.

It's photogenic people killing mutants before green screens; what more could you ask?

It's a murky film, in terms of both plot (overcooked) and visuals (underlit), proudly artificial and yet burdened with a severe pulp deficiency.

Stylized, slapdash sci-fi bloodbath is gory and grim.

I dearly hope John Malkovich got paid handsomely for his two days of embarrassment on-set.

This movie is lost from the start and never finds its way. Plays like a video game with repetitive special effects and wooden dialogue.

Shoestring special effects and flimsy storytelling make Mutant Chronicles a B-movie fantasy in search of an old Times Square moviehouse.
