Critic Reviews for Fortitude: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Fortitude: Season 1

  • Jan 09, 2022
    This season is fine, the rest of the show is a complete miss
  • Nov 22, 2021
    This is an excellent show that first captivates through it cinematography. As the show develops, the characters are just as layered as the snow drifts. This coupled with a thought provoking synopsis/plot: using the theory of what is undoubtably occurring through global warming---via permafrost---melting and exposing toxins of ancient origin that creates psychosis and illness, characters fight each other, the environment, and ultimate power to discern what is occurring.
  • Jul 06, 2021
    Started very interesting but unfortunately ended up as a bit of a joke... shame, had a really good potential
  • Mar 21, 2021
    Pretty good mystery, interesting characters, great setting.
  • Jan 01, 2021
    Enjoyable show. So many main people died, you never knew who was safe.
  • Oct 25, 2020
    One of the most unrealistic plots ever. Freezing cold and everyone outside. Walking around town, having sex, walking miles through blizzards, sleeping outside. Animal researchers doing all kinds of medical procedures on people. Police chief can do anything to anybody at anytime with no accountability. Characters are totally irrational. They change their motives and feelings every episode. Very difficult to believe.
  • Oct 24, 2020
    The series has a well-developed character and plot quality to it while keeping us guessing the real consequence of their folly. Excellent acting, especially by Dammer.
  • May 08, 2020
    I binged this one and loved it. Too bad the second season couldn't pull it off.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    I cant watch every scene (blood & guts) and I cant keep track of who is sleeping with whom but over all I like it because it is NOT boring old American drama with predictable script.
  • Apr 12, 2020
    Great scenery, good characterisation, gripping watch.
