Jeff of We Got This Covered wrote, "Puncture is one of those stories of two people attempting to overcome insurmountable odds in an attempt to do the right thing. Even though things look bad for them throughout, do they ever give up? Of course not. There wouldn’t be much of a movie here if they did. Films like this tend to have you rooting for the underdog from the very start, and when done really well, you start to care about more than just their cause, you begin to care about what happens to the characters themselves. Puncture manages to achieve the former, but unfortunately, not the latter."
