"Lean, muscular and on the money, The Last Days on Mars takes a familiar story and tells it so tautly that we are pleased to be on board." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"An elegantly crafted adventure in classical science-fiction." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"An atmospheric chiller ...The establishing scenes are terrific, with cinematographer Robbie Ryan prowling the barren landscape in hazy light, and the visual effects team whipping up truly menacing dust storms accompanied by Max Richter’s score, by turns melodic, moody and urgent. There’s also a potent sense of the claustrophobia of people stationed in a remote outpost, tinged with notes of dread." - The Hollywood Reporter
"The cast is excellent, there's stunning cinematography... an intelligent and engaging sci-fi thriller that's well worth checking out." - The List
"Olivia Williams at her scene-stealing best" - Screen International
