Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mais um fruto da paranóia coletiva gerada pela Guerra Fria, o filme conta com algumas boas idéias, mas é esquemático demais para aproveitá-las a contento."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The only thing that was hard to fully approve of in Panic in Year Zero!, was Milland's selfish philosophy for survival -- it was simply not a very human one."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A silly atomic war story with the prerequisite AIP juvenile delinquents and cheap look."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Intriguing low-budget opus that now seems like a time-capsule of nuclear paranoia"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
