1.5 of 4

“..the film's title promises payback, without offering ample compensation..”
by Adam Litovitz [Globe and Mail]
1 of 5

“..lacks inventiveness in any single fibre of its being - and worse, it's dull, resulting in highly produced b-grade schlock that constantly mashed the slo-mo button with its worn-down book of 3D cliches..”
by Liam Maguren [Flicks.co.nz]
1.5 of 4

“..it's all the same blah-blah carnage as the first four flicks, with 3D effects hurling blood, blades and body parts into the audience amid a non-stop barrage of gunfire and explosions..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..endless video-game-style, violent mayhem is on display in this latest edition of the mind-numbing apocalypse series..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
