Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A serviceable reintroduction to Roth's idiosyncratic brand of horror, but it fails to either offend or exhilarate, instead chronicling the misadventures of a group of student activists with more technical acuity than singularity."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, TheWrap
"Works as both a gut-punch horror film and a distressingly downbeat adventure story."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"A blood-soaked ride into the jaws of Hell, but Inferno is too frivolous to score as nightmare material, finding Roth displaying habitual timidity when it comes to truly shocking encounters."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"A fun and interesting twist on the travelogue sub-genre of horror ... far better than many horror movies with twice the budget."
‑ Edward Douglas,
"Really quite fun. Up to a point."
‑ Chris Fyvie, The Skinny
"The Green Inferno receives a palpable shot in the arm from the characters' initial arrival into the tribe's primitive camp..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Boy, Roth sure knows how to kill people. I mean, we knew that but it's been four movies now and he's coming up with innovative ways."
‑ Fred Topel, CraveOnline
"A very slow start threatens to derail The Green Inferno, but once the terror begins, it never lets up and Roth once again proves why he's a master of horror."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"The plot may sound fairly simplistic but underneath the blood and guts there's a biting satire about rich cosseted students signing up to causes they hardly understand."
‑ Henry Northmore, The List
"A generally bad time at the movies, and the only significant payoff is a reinforced feeling that Eli Roth is terrified of anyone who isn't an upper-middle-class millennial."
‑ John Gholson, Cinematical
"It seems, ironically, much more amateurish than any of Roth's previous features, to the point where you start to wonder why he chose this as his comeback vehicle."
‑ Cory Everett, The Playlist
"if you want an absolutely brutal experience that's tough to endure, just like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, this is probably the movie for you."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
