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.

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.

A run-of-the-mill apocalypse.

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

Observer (UK)

Although the film lacks the bravura of Von Trier's Melancholia or the heart and humour of Don McKellar's Last Night, it does have a propulsive energy and a satisfying arc of redemption.

Los Angeles Times

An urgent yet strangely simple and humanistic doomsday scenario.

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.

The plot might suggest a large-scale epic, but These Final Hours emerges as an intimate film about the end of the world.

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

Some people might find this film depressing to watch. This is one of the few apocalyptic films that actually feels like an apocalyptic film. Even with films… More
