Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Drew Toal, Time Out New York
"Definitely isn't setting any precedence, but it's serviceable and fun."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"...makes one long for the comparatively straightforward incompetence of filmmakers like Uwe Boll."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, Sci Fi Wire
"You won't understand what's going on and, even worse, you won't care."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"It's photogenic people killing mutants before green screens; what more could you ask?"
‑ Michael Ordoña, Los Angeles Times
"It's a murky film, in terms of both plot (overcooked) and visuals (underlit), proudly artificial and yet burdened with a severe pulp deficiency."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"Stylized, slapdash sci-fi bloodbath is gory and grim."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"The reason most movies don't include aliens, zombies, weird mysticism and a lot of swordfighting is that each of those elements... takes time to explore and nurture into something compelling."
‑ Eugene Novikov,
"Every guy has watched an action film and wondered when we'd get to the good stuff, but from minute one we're given "the good stuff," but it's just not executed well enough, and the film is too kitschy to really be enjoyed."
‑ Staff,
"I dearly hope John Malkovich got paid handsomely for his two days of embarrassment on-set."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"This movie is lost from the start and never finds its way. Plays like a video game with repetitive special effects and wooden dialogue."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"Shoestring special effects and flimsy storytelling make Mutant Chronicles a B-movie fantasy in search of an old Times Square moviehouse."
‑ Steve Ramos, Boxoffice Magazine
"Combine some of the most misguided design decisions in years with dialogue, plot, and characters out of an Uwe Boll film and you have a definite misfire"
‑ Brian Tallerico, Movie Retriever
"The feature is better executed in a shoot-first-ask-questions-later style that encourages silence and brutality. Once the material is asked to explain itself, the entertainment value of the film curdles immediately."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
