It's a murky film, in terms of both plot (overcooked) and visuals (underlit), proudly artificial and yet burdened with a severe pulp deficiency.

I dearly hope John Malkovich got paid handsomely for his two days of embarrassment on-set.

This movie is lost from the start and never finds its way. Plays like a video game with repetitive special effects and wooden dialogue.

Stylized, slapdash sci-fi bloodbath is gory and grim.

...makes one long for the comparatively straightforward incompetence of filmmakers like Uwe Boll.

The feature is better executed in a shoot-first-ask-questions-later style that encourages silence and brutality. Once the material is asked to explain itself, the entertainment value of the film curdles immediately.

You won't understand what's going on and, even worse, you won't care.

When the ridiculous and the sublime come within kissing distance like this, you know that, script or no script, Hollywood has found a way to have a wonderful time.

Combine some of the most misguided design decisions in years with dialogue, plot, and characters out of an Uwe Boll film and you have a definite misfire

A cheesy attempt to throw everything at the screen, this futuristic thriller would no doubt work much better as a videogame

It's photogenic people killing mutants before green screens; what more could you ask?

Shoestring special effects and flimsy storytelling make Mutant Chronicles a B-movie fantasy in search of an old Times Square moviehouse.

Every guy has watched an action film and wondered when we'd get to the good stuff, but from minute one we're given "the good stuff," but it's just not executed well enough, and the film is too kitschy to really be enjoyed.

...suffers from a pervadingly low-rent sensibility that proves impossible to overlook.

But a screenplay that sounds like it was hewn from chunks of wood is a great leveller, so everyone comes out looking equally inept.

The production notes describe this as an epic sci-fi action thriller like no other, which is on every level a blessing - it's like being dropped into a tar pit of underlit tedium.

Are excitable eight-year-olds - this movie's intellectual target audience - really going to wait another ten years before they can watch it legally?
