Consensus: Writer-director Zak Hilditch's thought-provoking screenplay -- and a stellar performance from young Angourie Rice -- make These Final Hours worth watching, even if its end-of-the-world premise is overly familiar.

A run-of-the-mill apocalypse.

Incoherent and pointless as it is, These Final Hours moves with commendable swiftness.

So many films address the premise because it's always thought-provoking and affecting. This also has a bleached, depopulated, effectively catastrophe-struck feel and an intriguing adult-and-child road movie storyline.

An urgent yet strangely simple and humanistic doomsday scenario.

Despite its strong sense of place and a solid central performance from Nathan Phillips, Zak Hilditch's film is too blighted by the deja vu factor to stand out from the apocalyptic pack.

The low-budget Australian apocalyptic drama has such a terrific start - an adrenaline rush of panic and dread as a huge asteroid colliding with the Earth sends a wall of fire around the planet. It's a shame the movie peters out about halfway through.

Technically auspicious but narratively hollow.

Doc Charlie Oughton

It offers the action of a balls-out sci-fi while grabbing the audience by its character development and has cinematography so beautiful it will make you feel grand to be alive. These Final Hours is a gorgeous call to humanity.
