It's not a film about the gradual extinction of humankind -- it's actually about the horrible demise of humanity.
July 7, 2015
A solid drama about pettiness, individualism and foolishness. [full review in Spanish]

Reel Film Reviews
November 2, 2011 awfully familiar premise that's employed to lukewarm (yet watchable) effect by filmmakers Alex and David Pastor...

Brings absolutely nothing new to the table.

Gloom, not thrills, in sci-fi drama of worldwide plague.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

It's like Zombieland, but without the laughs . . . or the zombies.

A thoughtful effort, a meditative treatise on the ethics of survival in a land where all hope is lost.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

A moody, engaging end-of-the-world horror-drama, if a bit too apocalypse-lite.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Time Out
December 11, 2009
This thoughtful, low-key exploration of our darker survival instincts is too conventional and unfocused to fully engage our emotions.

Diverting and well made with solid performances, but Carriers adds nothing new.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Peter Bradshaw
December 11, 2009
Plays like Zombieland's humourless twin: with none of the gags and, unfortunately, not many of its genuine moments of tension.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

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

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

The anti-Zombieland - a darker, more intense look at humanity.

Never less than engrossing, this is one trip you won't want to make.

Die-hard horror fans may find this a little on the tame side, while Pucci's survival rules have a lot in common with Jesse Eisenberg's in Zombieland. But it's still a well-crafted gripper, with a nice line in gallows humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)
December 11, 2009
Very much horror-lite, here's a movie crying out for more claret to ramp up the sense of dread. Still, when dealing with the awful life-or-death decisions the survivors face, it's grimly effective.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Carriers is grimmer than necessary.
