DC's Legends of Tomorrow

Critics Consensus

Fancy effects, comic-book nostalgia, and an alluring cast help keep it afloat, but DC's Legends of Tomorrow suffers from an overloaded cast of characters that contribute to a distractingly crowded canvas.

Critic Reviews for DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (14)

There are other moments where you recognize you're watching something that wants to be a cross between Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy. Even if it never gets close to fulfilling that destiny, I'm sticking around to watch it try.

I found Legends, in which time traveler Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) unites various heroes to stop the future destruction of humanity, surprisingly engaging.

Jan 22, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The prospect of jumping from era to era to stop Savage holds promise, but there isn't enough interplay between the characters to add any dimension to the early episodes. If only they could go back in time two hours and make a different show.

Jan 21, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Of course, it's supposed to be like a comic book, but the clumsy dialogue and stiff acting can be a bit much to get past.

Legends simply feels too loose, too campy. The perils here don't seem as perilous as much as comical - unintentionally so.

Top Critic

Unlike The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, there arguably are too many characters to service here. Add a lot of attendant gobbledygook and mostly shopworn banter.

Top Critic

If we can just get some sharper writing, a better villain, and someone to fill the hole left by Snart's tragic departure, Legends might just level up.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

But once said conversations have been had, after the i's are dotted and t's crossed, the times ahead promise to be spread across the ages and a whole lotta fun.

Jul 25, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

"DC's Legends of Tomorrow," like its quirky ensemble of characters, shows great promise in living up to its grandiose title.

Dec 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Like the "legends" themselves, it's got plenty of potential, but ultimately it may leave us wishing its harmful and outdated depictions of consent had been jettisoned in the past, where they belong.

Audience Reviews for DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1

  • Aug 08, 2019
    Its fun and pretty watchable but theres 2 characters that distract from the fun and those characters are hawkman and hawkgirl.
  • Jul 20, 2019
    Amazing season is not as slow as all the first seasons of the other series in the arrowverse
  • Jul 15, 2019
    Season 1 is a great premise with wonderful visuals and a fantastic cast to play with, but some characters don't mesh with the world and the villain is sadly one dimensional. The opening season for the Legends proves to be too many ideas and ambition that it crumbles in on itself and not in the best way.

    I've been binge watching this show and appreciate how well the characters and storylines develop. I'm well into season 3 and can't wait to get all caught up. I love the time travel team as they embark on their adventures and find creative ways to defeat or slow down the villains. I also like how they sometimes team up with other superheros like Flash, Arrow and Constantine. I hope the show can continue the momentum and last for a few more seasons. If you're thinking of watching this show you should try it. I'm a big fan of the Legends now.

    Legendary (I had to) it's Dr who but with super heroes
  • Apr 01, 2019
    Started off okay, but didn't really improve much in my opinion. The story became increasingly tangled in stupid plot holes that made no sense. The acting was average.
  • Mar 24, 2019
    THE SHOW IS PURE GARBAGE. I LOVE THE ARROWVERSE, BUT THIS IS NOTHING BUT REJECTS FROM THE FLASH AND ARROW, MIX IN A WHOLE BAG OF LIBERAL CRAP AND BAKE. SPOILER BUT THEY GET RID OF RIP AND SNART THE ONLY SEMI DECENT CHARACTERS. I COULD GO ON AND ON, BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THEY FOCUS MORE ON LIBERAL STUFF RATHER THAN TIME OR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!
  • Feb 04, 2019
    The dynamics between characters are interesting and I like how diverse the cast is. The premise is good and fairly well executed. The time travelling theme is pretty well used and explored.
  • Jan 02, 2019
    Like Arrow season 3. The origin of all of the superheroes was revealed on the other Arrowverse, expect Hunter. Of course, you have to come across their backgrounds to get their deal. But it should not take too long. Like 5 episode at least with some sort of flashbacks. The show has an interesting and amusing concept but time travel could screw with everything. By this I mean the plot and not just this shows plot, but the other Arrowverse shows. All the acting is incredible especially Arthur Darvill who played the teams captain. Although Caity Lotz is going need some work with her character. One of the main coolest thing about the show is that they joined all the characters who couldn't fit in any of the other Arrowverse shows and joined them into a humorous little team of mishap superheroes. The ending was sad. And the smart scrappy ways you come up with to save the day - that idea maybe can't be executed without creating more problems. They have to get used to each other being in the same team. The isn't as many episodes as you would like there to be in a traditional Arrowverse show. But the wacky technology and mad set props make up for it. All I can say is there will and forever be plot holes throughout the series. I would recommend. I would age this PG for violence, and not much use of bad language. Grade: A+

    Terrible writing and directing. Some of the actors are so weak and self center that they make so many mistakes for selfish reasons.
