Critic Reviews for Alias Season 4

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Although this season wraps up a lot of what has been going on for four years, there's still the unresolved ending that baits the audience into watching season five.

I wish the characters would take a break from battling terrorists and other villains and concentrate on personal issues.

Call Alias: Season Four the calm before the storm. Calm, though, is somewhat of a misnomer. Season four elevated the roof of J.J. Abrams' brainchild to new heights.

In brief: Good stories, hot star overcome baffling twists.

Putting the band back together doesn't necessarily mean they'll make beautiful music together. But... I know you are capable of bringing back the spark, the cozy drama, the engrossing action. And maybe Will Tippin? I trust you, J.J. [Abrams].

Even in its first season, Alias left the fate of basically every major character up in the air. Things have gotten even more labyrinthine since then... Still, through it all, Abrams has continued building suspense on the most important fronts.

Ms. Garner... looks honestly beautiful in close-ups. But as a character who has been betrayed by everyone around her -- and who faces death on a regular basis -- she ought to have the gravitas of Anna Karenina by now.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Since the stories move along briskly and it's consistently entertaining, I'm willing to roll with it.

Dec 26, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

My sniping doesn't dismiss the fact that Alias, although not the layered, sneaky, wildly imaginative drama it once was, is still entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Alias: Season 4

  • Jul 22, 2019
    J.J. Abrams scales back Alias and attempts to get it back to its roots in Season 4. Sydney leaves the CIA to join a small convert black ops team and is shocked when she learns that it's being run by Sloane, but she decides to stay on in order to keep tabs on him and connect with her long lost sister who also decides to join the team. The cast is downgraded to just the core members – jettisoning all the recurring ones (except for a couple of guest appearances here and there). Also, the cliffhanger ending of Season 3 is rewritten into some nonsense about Sydney's mom and the Rambaldi mythology is reworked and comes to some kind of conclusion in the final arc of the season. A few notable guest stars are featured, including Angela Bassett, Jason Segel, Joel Grey, and Michelle Forbes, and the action remains incredibly exciting and is full of thrills. While its entertaining and fun at times, Season 4 of Alias focuses on all the wrong things and is a real step down.
