Crisis in Six Scenes: Miniseries (2016)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Woody Allen's filmmaking skills prove a poor fit for the small screen in Crisis in Six Scenes, a talk-heavy, unfunny, and overall disengaged production buried below numerous superior offerings.

Critic Reviews for Crisis in Six Scenes Miniseries

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (28)

If you thought Woody Allen would revolutionize television with his new Amazon series, Crisis in Six Scenes, prepare to be underwhelmed.

Sep 29, 2016 | Full Review…

Talky, tired, tame Crisis is a misfire.

Top Critic

In an ugly, miserable relationship, the narrative requirements of TV hate him back by reducing his masterful skills of character, dialogue and pacing to staggering weaknesses.

Sep 29, 2016 | Full Review…

There are at least two good ideas tucked away to the corners of this series, which more closely resembles a bloated, broken-up film.

Top Critic

Woody Allen setting a new show in the sixties feels a little desperate, like he's trying to physically yank back his glory days.

Top Critic

There are smiles, but also cringes. Cyrus is terrible, and even May can't do much with this.

Sep 30, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

There are moments of typical Allen comedy that land. However, these are concentrated mostly towards the end and are few and far between some of the more broad, gaudy schtick.

Nov 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The first series from the famous New York filmmaker has his mark, but appears to have been directed by an imitator. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Crisis in Six Scenes falls short of the most basic benchmarks that separate a serialized story from a monolith.

Aug 15, 2017 | Full Review…

The dialogue is stilted, the performances are awkward, and most scenes go on twice as long as they should.

Audience Reviews for Crisis in Six Scenes: Miniseries

½

Woody Allen's disastrous attempt to create a mini-series. It was not funny, not engaging, not anything. Very disappointing.
