Damage received a positive review from The Movie Musings. The reviewer comments: "It's clear watching this film that [director Madeleine Blackwell] cares and wants to use her creativity to make a change or at least shine a light on problematic subjects. This is ultimately a human story about two people from very different places and seeks to find the commonality between us all."
Damage received a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars from reviewer Mark Morellini of CityHub. He observes: "Cultures clash in this low budget yet powerful and thought-provoking Australian movie, when two people from totally different backgrounds spend several hours together driving around in a taxi."
