Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A major splatter fest."
‑ Janice Page, Boston Globe
"Over the top gore, and tight choreography help the otherwise cheesy and forgettable attempts at comedy, and repetitive action scenes."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"while on many levels it is a poorly written, hammily acted, cheaply produced piece of crap - damn, it's got some good a** kicking!"
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"For a low-budget ghost-yakuza thriller, Versus is a fairly impressive achievement."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"[Proves] the old adage about less being more."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Mayhem, of a unique, frenetic, and almost crazily poetic kind."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Being dumb is cool, dude, and Versus is as knowingly dumb as a three-chord thrash by The Ramones."
‑ Ian Berriman, SFX Magazine
"Como trash, tem seus bons momentos (especialmente aqueles protagonizados pelo exagerado - e divertido - Matsuda), mas abusa com sua montagem capenga e a longa duração."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"If you don't have fun watching "Versus" then we're gonna have to break out the paddles on you."
‑ Eric Campos, Film Threat
