Variety wrote that critics panned the film as “a derivative work that has nothing to say” and also that the timing of its release with the killing of George Floyd and the related protests was “a disaster”. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 0% based on 35 reviews, with an average rating of 2.02/10. The site's critics consensus reads: “This Crime is punishment.” Metacritic assigned the film a weighted average score of 15 out of 100, based on 12 critics, indicating “overwhelming dislike”.
David Ehrlich of IndieWire gave the film a “D–” and said, “[it's] not just because Olivier Megaton's agonizingly dull Netflix feature is 149 minutes long (a crime unto itself). While there's never really a good moment to introduce a bad movie into the world, this hollow as well as artless dystopian heist dreck is also a victim of its own relevance.” Peter Debruge of Variety called the film “gory, excessive and frequently incoherent” and created: “In light of everything that's going on, The Last Days of American Crime seems woefully out of touch, inadvertently offensive (a brutal fight scene in which Copley chokes Shelby seems oblivious to the legacy of real-world police brutality) and like some sloppy relic of what once passed for entertainment.”
