Critic Consensus: The Assassination of Versace starts with a bang and unfurls slowly, moving backward through an intricate (and occasionally convoluted) murder mystery anchored by a career-defining performance from Darren Criss.

Critic Reviews for American Crime Story The Assassination of Gianni Versace

All Critics (93) | Top Critics (36)

[Darren] Criss' performance is so good that it upends The Assassination of Gianni Versace: Where Cuba Gooding Jr.'s lackluster performance pushed O.J. to the margins of his own story, Criss, aided by scripts, pushes everyone else aside.

Featuring less star power than OJ but a few stellar performances of its own, Gianni Versace will be a tougher sell to casual viewers, but those who go along for this journey into the world of a sociopath will be dramatically rewarded.

Sorry, not as good as O.J., but Criss turns in a dynamic performance in service of a desperately sad story.

"Versace" feels stretched and padded.

Former Glee star Darren Criss inhabits Cunanan with more flash and impact than any model who ever wore one of Versace's creations.

Getting the most out of American Crime Story will similarly mean looking past the frescoes and fabrics to the plight of people whose ken for beauty fascinated a sick man and-Murphy argues-a sick society.

Unknowingly, you start to care and that's what makes this Ryan Murphy show special.

Dec 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet, the story of Gianni Versace feels fresh. That's because its a different approach. We aren't solving a murder. We're entering the mind of a sociopath.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

As long as Murphy and the show's directors continue to pull no punches from the soap opera playbook, it's going to be one hell of a ride.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The caveat [is] that this will more than likely turn into the typical Ryan Murphy set up where he brings you in at the top of a series... and it ends up becoming, like, super-whack.
