Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's fortunes might also have been harmed by widespread over-praising from critics. While the film has its virtues, too many local reviews simply make the film out to be a much more accomplished work than it is."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"The film is a showcase for Hilditch's technical skill, which includes an understanding of audience psychology: he has the knack of creating awful pictures in the mind while showing the worst horrors briefly or not at all."
‑ Jake Wilson, Sydney Morning Herald
"These Final Hours is tragic, sad, thrilling and tense, a triumph of cinema that tells its gut-wrenching tale in under 90 minutes - take note, Hollywood."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"The final graphic effects extravaganza is, I think, a mistake. Better to have ended on a note of eerie stillness and reflection. But if it's spectacle you want, those final moments are hard to beat. All reservations aside, it's a terrific movie."
‑ Evan Williams, The Australian
"An attention grabbing debut"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"I like the concept and it's nice to watch an apocalyptic action film that asks a few questions."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"Zak Hilditch's tense apocalyptic drama These Final Hours gives a familiar concept a telling new location: Perth."
‑ Craig Mathieson, The Age (Australia)
"A symbolic work that fires from multiple cannons."
‑ Luke Buckmaster, Guardian
"There's never been an end-of-days movie quite like These Final Hours before, an anything-goes orgy of grief, savagery, and sex, with just enough humanity to remind us why maybe farewelling mankind would be a shame after all."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"These Final Hours renders an abject apocalypse; and yet the last glimpses of humanity are dazzling."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"Though there is more than the odd stumble along the way, the intense atmosphere... --- and its scrupulously balanced blending of danger, despair, defiance and death - remains powerful and arrestingly ominous throughout."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)
"Hilditch wants us to walk on hot cinematic coals here, knowing the hurt and pain that the film stirs up will ultimately result in a satisfied but more so, stronger you."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Zak Hilditch makes a scorching debut feature with this emotionally explosive apocalyptic drama."
‑ Tom Clift, FILMINK (Australia)
"When the film isn't sickeningly violent, it's stupid and when it's not that it's sentimental and boring, with little to recommend."
‑ Damien Straker, Impulse Gamer
"An incredibly bleak yet never the less effective pre-apocalypse movie, that stunningly portrays an Australia succumbed to a culture of death during the most fleeting and precious moments of creation."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
