Carriers is grimmer than necessary.

In lacking both subtley and specatcle... Carriers timidly takes its place in the realms of forgettable science-fiction fodder.
| Original Score: 2/5

It's a zombie movie without any zombies, which works about as well as a martial arts film where nobody gets punched in the teeth.

A queasy mixture of survivalist machismo and mawkish piety.

Time Out

This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions.

engaging despite its downbeat message and lack of zombie action.

Sadly it loses track of its own best ideas, pledging itself to a dreary set of surviving characters whose choices carry no charge.

The movie has as much depth as the single piece of paper on which the script was obviously written.

Plays like Zombieland's humourless twin: with none of the gags and, unfortunately, not many of its genuine moments of tension.

The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity.
| Original Score: 3/5

A little more realistic than a zombie flick. Some renegade virus could make the world a "survival of the fittest" ordeal. A very interesting story with some nice reveals. Paul Chambers, CNN.

December 11, 2009
A gritty low-budget mix of some of the best bits from Mad Max, Outbreak and Night Of The Living Dead, it ticks all the boxes in a refreshingly snappy 84 minute runtime.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It's not a film about the gradual extinction of humankind -- it's actually about the horrible demise of humanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new.

A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost.

It is bleak, gloomy, emotional and a surprisingly good little movie which has been unjustly languishing on a shelf at Paramount

it abandons these models of action, comedy and the supernatural, preferring instead to root its horror in the grimly realistic human drama of four random wanderers gradually losing everyone and everything that they hold dear.
