Few performances equal Bruno's in The Quiet Earth. I can only think of Spencer Tracey in The Old Man and the Sea to match his solo role. Tracey held the audience for twenty minutes; Bruno kept the audience on the edge of their seats for twice that time....
– Kiwi film legend John O'Shea
While the film could be filed under 'political allegory' or 'science fiction', it is equally a character study, an exposition of existentialism, and a rollicking action movie in which a hero must beat a countdown.
– Hamish McDouall, in his book 100 Essential New Zealand Films
