Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten."
‑ Soren Anderson, Seattle Times
""Raze" is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"The fights are visceral and gruesome without going too far, but by the sixth or seventh bout, the lack of variation becomes noticeable."
‑ Stephen Danay, Under the Radar
"The tease of 50 gorgeous women fighting to the death has a classic grindhouse appeal, but Raze is strictly a "be careful what you wish for" proposition."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
"For an exploitation movie about girls beating each other to death, 'Raze' doesn't want you to have a lot of fun."
‑ Matt Prigge, Metro
"Prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"If you can stand to watch this movie -- a big if -- there is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Raze ultimately becomes little more than a tiresome endurance test ... Still, much like a less accomplished The Raid, some viewers may respond to its bloody, take-no-prisoners style."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Quickflix
"As violent as it is, Raze is refreshing."
‑ Shannon M. Houston, Paste Magazine
"Fight Club looks tame and rather cheery compared to the hellish scenario Raze thrusts Bell and a number of other warrior women into."
‑ Travis Hopson, Examiner.com
"The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"The entertainment value of the violence trumps most of the larger meaning, and the film exploits its characters just as they do their prisoners."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"The film favors brutal violence over any sort of social commentary, making its half-hearted stab at female empowerment feel hollow."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"Raze is strong stuff, but also briskly paced and interested in the psychological ramifications of such unrelenting brutality."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"If "Raze" had been released in 1975, Quentin Tarantino would never shut up about it."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
