TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Though the execution feels almost as dated as the period it represents, 11.22.63 gradually reveals a compelling, well-performed series of events.

A Hulu winner.

Top Critic

A clean, direct adaptation of King's novel, in all the best ways.

Feb 15, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The eight-part miniseries, which begins streaming Monday, immaculately recreates the era - but it's also, at its beating heart, an exquisite romance about sacrifice and the perils of optimism.

Feb 15, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Hulu's most ambitious original project... a well-crafted period look and an engaging leading man in Franco. But that slow pace makes it tough for viewers to stick around long enough to learn if Jake ever becomes the hero he's striving to be.

That the limited series squeaks by as just entertaining enough is a disappointment considering the pedigree of everyone involved and the reputation of its source material. Time travel and Dealey Plaza deserve better.

Despite its flaws, 11.22.63 ends up closing the deal in a way that for the most part makes it a long, strange time travel worth taking.

Top Critic

A good old-fashioned slice of sci-fi/ horror hokum with a welcome edge that revitalises the time-travel sub-genre.

Dec 19, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's not a bad goal for the social good-minded time traveller, or more importantly to the matter at hand, a bad premise for a flashy miniseries designed to get attention.

Aug 10, 2017 | Full Review…

James Franco is the perfect foil for the can't-quite-put-your-finger-on-it creepiness of 11.22.63.

Sep 25, 2016 | Full Review…

It might take a little while to get into it, but you'll be sad when it's over.

Audience Reviews for 11.22.63: Miniseries

JensS

Super Reviewer

A time travel tale gone wrong. Like The Dead Zone, 11.22.63 is about assassination. But this time there is time travelling involved to go back to the time when Kennedy was killed. No one really cares, and the story is not particularly compelling. Franco was really bad at playing the lead role. Overall, it's not something worth wasting 8 hours of your life on.

Crushed the expectations by making it more of a love story than a sci-fi thriller.
