Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Allen and Albert Hughes have created a plausible post-apocalyptic world.Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 07.07.2010
A stylish, gritty fantasy feature that wrestles with the agonies, joys and eternal wrinkles of faith and evil and the dangerous minuet they do.Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 06.24.2010
t's a post-apocalyptic western, it's an evangelical tract, it's a road movie, it's a martial arts movie, it's a disaster movie, it's a graphic novel. It's equal parts The Road and The Robe, A Fistful of Dollars and Fist of Fury. It's Mad Max meets Left BeJonathan F. Richards, Film.com, 07.07.2010
Really, it's just another prophet-in-the-wilderness tale -- not nearly as bad as those trailers would suggest, yet neither will your soul run any risk of enlightenment.Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, 06.24.2010
