Critic reviews for Metalhead

This bleak and stripped down survival story is an all-out stunner.

A gripping, claustrophobic battle between woman and machine...

Interesting as all this is, however, it's not enough to sustain Metalhead over its 40-minute running time...this feels more like an elongated short.

The visuals were what carried me through the quieter moments, with Slade making sure every glimpse of the empty moors in high-contrast black-and-white photography jumps out at the viewer.

At 40 minutes long, it's likely the show's shortest episode yet, but it drags anyway, somehow unhelped by its manic pacing and thumping score.

We believe that this is the worst episode of the series. [Full Review in Spanish]
