Los Angeles Times

By Kenneth Turan
Lean, muscular and on the money, The Last Days on Mars takes a familiar story and tells it so tautly that we are pleased to be on board.

Village Voice

By Alan Scherstuhl
It's just zombies versus an international research station on the wastes of the Red Planet, with all that such a premise promises.

The Hollywood Reporter

By David Rooney
The unapologetically derivative sci-fi outing doesn’t have the scripting muscle to deliver on its early promise. But the solid cast keeps it reasonably gripping nonetheless.

Time Out New York

By Keith Uhlich
Once the undead start walking, however, the film loses some of its footing: Most of the bloodletting is staged with quick-cut inelegance better suited to the hack horror production of your choosing, though there’s still a potent air of hopelessness that lingers as the cast is winnowed away "Ten Little Indians"–style.

New York Post

By Sara Stewart
Despite all its problems, The Last Days on Mars serves up a deliciously shivery hypothetical: Wouldn’t we all secretly love it if the Mars rover sent back footage of a “walker” or two?

Schreiber saves it to an extent with some unusual performance choices, but when you compare this ending to the emotional supernova of Danny Boyle’s “Sunshine” it comes way short.

The Last Days on Mars ultimately can’t transcend its pulpy roots.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Bruce Ingram
This modest, low-budget sci-fi thriller is fatally lacking in entertainment value. It’s not original enough to be interesting, despite the presence of a pretty impressive cast, or awful enough to be campy fun. It’s serious enough to be depressing, though, if that’s your idea of a good time.

It really isn't even a bad movie, or a bad movie of its sort. It's just not good enough to really distinguish itself.

Variety

By Justin Chang
While it earns high marks for Jon Henson’s production design, this murkily derivative sci-fi-horror entry sets its sights disappointingly low in terms of story and ideas.
