Critic Reviews for Evil Genius: The True Story of America's Most Diabolical Bank Heist Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (10)

If you want a gripping, at times frustratingly odd story told well, Evil Genius does the job.

May 30, 2018 | Full Review…

This fascinating four-part Netflix true crime doco investigates the 'Pizza Bomber' case, a bizarre bank heist which occurred in the town of Erie, Pennsylvania in 2003.

May 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Evil Genius sits squarely in the "intense docudrama" format with which the network has had so much recent success.

May 16, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For a series that features, by its own description, a "master manipulator," Evil Genius feels more like a confused, unwitting pawn than an adversary worthy of taking on the challenge to uncover the truth.

Top Critic

The case of true crime storytelling that can be too easily classified as merely satiating the supply-and-demand for such unconscionable tales.

May 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The whole thing is far sadder than it is mysterious.

Dec 15, 2018 | Full Review…

As fascinating as it is messy.

Dec 15, 2018 | Full Review…

There's a noticeable lack of polish in Evil Genius and although it's a compelling journey, it's not a particularly pretty one to watch.

Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

The twists, turns and unreliable accounts in this true story make this documentary series stand out.

Nov 24, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Only becomes more captivating-and bizarre-in the final episode when a crucial witness makes an appearance.
