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.

As low-budget Ozploitation goes, it's snappy and effective.

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.

Jamie Graham
Total Film

Zak Hilditch's breathless... thriller tears through orgies, mass suicides and murderous rampages to conclude on a scene as moving and terrifying as the climax of Melancholia.

A run-of-the-mill apocalypse.

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

Sunday Times (UK)

It's the old mawkish story of a selfish adult reformed by a child, but the apocalyptic background throws up some lurid and unpredictable scenes.

Los Angeles Times

An urgent yet strangely simple and humanistic doomsday scenario.

David Rooney
Hollywood Reporter

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.

In a strange way it makes a hopeful statement, arguing that redemption is still possible up until the very point we are engulfed in continent-buckling fireballs.

Surprisingly evocative. An incipient-apocalypse original that works on many levels. Great cinema not only worth watching, but worth watching again.
