Critic Reviews for Ballers Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is back, and balling as hard as ever.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The overall theme of the series, the life as a current/ former football player, is still there, though the stakes seem to be higher this time around.

Jul 15, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

This is not the stuff of great comedy. It's barely the stuff of interesting TV.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Ballers is never going to be confused for one of HBO's premier comedies like Veep or Silicon Valley-and that's OK. Ballers is exactly what it presents itself to be.

Sep 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Ballers continues to prove that Johnson's star power is enough to keep a series relevant. Sure, the show may not be groundbreaking in any way, but Johnson's presence makes it worth the modest time investment each week.

Jul 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Ballers remains one of the breeziest, easiest-to-watch shows on cable, and that's a good and bad thing.

Audience Reviews for Ballers: Season 3

  • Oct 15, 2018
    While season two of Ballers was a step up, season three is a slight step down. The majority of the season is focused on Spencer's desire to get the Raiders to move to Las Vegas, and honestly the storyline is pretty boring, and the rest of the storylines aren't as entertaining as the previous two seasons, either. The financials of this season are also a mystery for the most part and a lot of what ASM is involved with doesn't seem to make financial sense. There is still entertainment to be had, but it's not nearly as attention-grabbing as before.

    Lost me in session 3. Nuff said.
  • Jul 09, 2018
    Not my favourite series, as it didn't have as many laughs. Still enjoyed it though.
  • Mar 06, 2018
    Even though it’s a show ballers shows how important agents are.
  • Oct 24, 2017
    Gives you a taste of what could be in Vegas, but keeps it so far.

    The writing and acting has held up wonderfully through the season. North Dallas 40 meets Any Given Sunday. Great show.

    Loving it man!!! not only entertaining but also motivating for being an entrepreneur or athlete in the future. Taking notes from the show on how to deal with people with charm and smartness and being ferocious when needed
