Critic reviews for Shut Up and Dance
No episode of "Black Mirror" will leave you feeling worse about humanity than this one. It's brilliantly plotted and paced, and the ultimate prank is on you. Oh, also? It could happen.
The episode felt like too much of an endurance test, with no clear message or moment of redemption to take away from it.
Shut Up and Dance, which has almost zero actual dancing, taps into a fear that's probably crossed everybody's mind at some point now that we're in the internet age: cyber blackmail.
[It's a] soul-scorching, relentlessly riveting new episode .
"Shut Up and Dance" certainly has its merits, but it's also perhaps the most succinct example of just how wrong Black Mirror can go.
