Aftershock is a pretty fun little movie if you don't take it too seriously and has an enjoyable nasty streak to it once the world begins to go to hell, only if you can forgive the extra-long set-up that gets us there.

August 24, 2015
A schizophrenic but effective little combo of Hostel and Irwin Allen.
November 25, 2013
With a nihilistic ending tacked on because hopelessness is seemingly cool, cheap special effects, clunky dialogue, a bizarre ten-second cameo from Selena Gomez, and some genuinely mediocre filmmaking, Aftershock is too amateurish to be truly awful.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's just one gigantic waste of time.
October 30, 2013
a fumbled and misguided mess that not even the infamous Harvey Weinstein could snake-oil pitch.

Very, very ordinary.

August 12, 2013
It gleefully chops its cast down in increasingly alarming and brutal ways.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 9, 2013
It feels like overeager tourists playing make believe on the old Earthquake attraction at Universal Studios. The parts that work better are intentionally played for laughs.

June 12, 2013
The cosmopolitan cast never develops much chemistry, and the script settles into a predictable pattern of gory mayhem.
May 15, 2013
This Dimension pickup is a hectic, sometimes hilarious guilty pleasure that should delight genre geeks.

Was Aftershock just an elaborate ruse by writer-producer-star Eli Roth to justify an extended vacation to Chile?
May 12, 2013
You just might find yourself rooting for the earthquake to win out in the end.

Is no continent safe from the blood-drenched paws of filmmaker Eli Roth?
Full Review | Original Score: B-
May 10, 2013
Ultimately, Aftershock ends up having the nihilistic outlook of Funny Games with the charming international optimism of Hostel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

If you're in the midst of such a massive quake, with destruction everywhere, the last thing you should be doing is worrying about escaped murderer-rapist prisoners.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 10, 2013
If 'The Impossible' was a disaster film for the arthouse, 'Aftershock' is strictly grindhouse. It delivers the nasty goods.

Aftershock Is Like Piranha 3D Meets The Impossible
Full Review | Original Score: B-
May 10, 2013
You can only listen to so much screaming and crying before it stops having the desired effect (ratcheting up the viewer's stress level) and simply becomes grating.
May 10, 2013
Supposed to be a subversive hybrid of disaster movies and gory horror, but it's uncertain where the two actually meet.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Aftershock's best attribute is the disregard it shows for the safety of its central "heroes" who perish in brutal and generally unexpected ways.
