Critic Consensus: Mayhem delivers stylish violence by the bloody bucketful -- and grounds all the titular chaos in sharp humor and surprisingly effective real-world economic angst.

Critic Reviews for Mayhem
At some point just past the middle, it goes on autopilot.
Mayhem channels rage at an unfair society and the bullshit that trickles down from the Powers That Be into a paean to uncontrolled anger.
"Mayhem" is a frantic, blood-splattered, rock 'n' roll action-horror-comedy that plays like a killer cross between "Crank" and "Office Space."
Though it's not particularly inventive, the film has a fine time pitting office-dwellers against each other.
For how much is going on, with nail guns and scissor-stabbings and one very unconvincing dislocated tongue, the chaos can feel as sterile as a Wednesday morning meeting.
Audience Reviews for Mayhem
Like The Belko Experiment before it, Mayhem is a cathartic office massacre movie that's mean-spirited in a good way. Mayhem however, has one thing The Belko Experiment didn't: Fellow Australian Samara Weaving lowering the quality of the whole thing.
There's some virus loose in an office building that makes people go violent, and so everybody starts attacking everybody else all of a sudden. There's some little dialogue, too, some talking about stuff, set-up stuff mostly, but no worries, cause soon we get right back to the old ultra-violence. And roll credits. Meh. The hero sums it all up at the end, something about about how violence is bad and so you better watch out. Sounded like a moral or something.
