Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Wolf Creek 2" is gory, disturbing, inventive, twisted and rather well made."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Mick has been reimagined as a chortling, xenophobic butcher who enjoys a singalong of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" and dismembers his victims with the help of Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces.""
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Wolf Creek 2 both deconstructs and perpetuates the myth of boorishly ugly hospitality Down Under, creating a monster who is a distorted yet recognisable part of the Australian character (especially in the current political climate)."
‑ Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
"Jarratt's outward Outback schtick is designed to entrap, but even without the soft sell approach, the genius of Mclean's creation is that he's part and parcel of the brutal landscape."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"John Jarratt is as magnificent as ever as the disgustingly gruesome Mick Taylor, but Wolf Creek 2 is mostly very predictable and a disappointing sequel to what was otherwise an incredibly daring original film."
‑ Chris Sawin, Examiner.com
"A fast-moving, lean killing machine that will delight genre fans."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Ultimately the sequel's raisons d'Ítre seem to be emulating superior movies, from "Deliverance" to "Joy Ride" to "Saw.""
‑ Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times
"A brutal and admirably grueling serial-killer thriller, this Australian import is also repetitive and ultimately a little dull."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"While the politics and film as a whole are not entirely successful, there is much to admire in Wolf Creek 2, not the least if which is director Greg McLean's chutzpah."
‑ Christopher Schobert, The Playlist
""Wolf Creek 2" isn't much different than "Wolf Creek," but it is markedly worse."
‑ Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com
"As well made as it is, it would be great to see what McLean could do if he were free from genre conventions and could put his many talents to use in a movie not built around beheadings and dismemberments."
‑ Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
"While Creek has some notable frights reminiscent of the 2005 original, this version tries too hard to create a franchise-able serial killer from Down Under, a Mad Max with a machete."
‑ Scott Bowles, USA Today
"Its grindhouse appeal will be enough for some audiences, but I sometimes require more of a statement to be made other than "It hurts when outback psychopaths stab you a bunch.""
‑ Witney Seibold, Nerdist
"If you can stomach it, another great, lupine performance as Outback psycho-killer by Aussie actor John Jarratt."
‑ James Verniere, Boston Herald
"Sooner or later, you have to serve up something more compelling than an abattoir. For Wolf Creek 2, that's the only purpose of the exercise."
‑ Rob Vaux, Mania.com
