Critic Consensus: Though it takes liberties with history and cannot overcome the shadow of the classic film of the same name, Bonnie & Clyde contains enough excitement to hold interest.

Critic Reviews for Bonnie & Clyde Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (20)

The miniseries doesn't make us care much.

Dec 9, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The production is not bad, at least when Grainger is the focus.

Dec 9, 2013 | Full Review…

If you can overlook Bonnie & Clyde's heavy-handed reliance on foreshadowing and the more obvious aspects of its myth-making agenda, it's a wild ride through a jalopy world.

Dec 9, 2013 | Full Review…

The combination of sex, violence, and regional and historical flavor makes Bonnie and Clyde's story compelling no matter how it's told.

It's an uninspired melding of Lifetime movie and biopic, with none of the virtues of a Lifetime movie (not campy enough) and none of the virtues of a biopic (it is egregiously fictionalized).

This elongated version makes its own mark, although certainly not an indelible one.

It announces its awfulness right in the opening credits...

The ride is sometimes exhilarating, sometimes bumpy.

You expect this sort of half-hearted attention to reality from Lifetime, but History, really?

Dec 9, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch are pretty great as Bonnie and Clyde, despite a just-servicable script to explain how Clyde won Bonnie's anxiety-ridden, artistic heart: through her scrapbook.
