"Priceless sci-fi schlock."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"There is some satire here - the devouring tourist becoming prey - but Crichton just lets the joke sit there, heavy on the screen."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"classic in a boring sort of a way"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"The film is 83 minutes long and basically puts forward its premise, twists the plot and then ends before the concepts become exhausted."
‑ Douglas Pratt, Movie City News
"Versão "primitiva" de Jurassic Park, parte de uma premissa interessante, mas jamais cria tensão suficiente no terceiro ato - apesar da boa presença de Brynner."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Great stuff."

"The idea exceeds the execution"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Robot western....cool."
