Critic Reviews for Fortitude Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (13)

Given the overarching what-the-hellness and seat-gripping tension, Fortitude is made for bingeing. Just when you think the writers have written themselves into a corner, they serve up another stunning revelation

There's incentive enough to hang around in the frozen north for another episode or two. But it needs sharper focus or there may be an epidemic of cold feet.

You'd say it was straight out of Hollywood, except that it is far too weird to have been commissioned by some weedy, greedy, risk-averse studio boss.

Push Fortitude to the top of your winter watch list.

What we're most likely to get from Fortitude is simpler: a good, well-told mystery. That's another way to get through those long, cold winter nights.

The resplendent panoramic visuals are a show in themselves. So the bigger your HD screen the better, with Fortitude's overriding whodunit gradually firming its grip while those icy, snowy vistas stay strong.

A hot-blooded murder mystery set in the cold of the Arctic Circle, Fortitude has an impressive cast headed up by Stanley Tucci and Michael Gambon, and an atmosphere that draws you in immediately.

Sophisticated snowbound mystery is slow, bloody, compelling.

The capable and compelling Fortitude generally hews to forms that have emerged in the Remote Noir subgenre; it's a welcome entrant into a crowded TV field.

Every fledging network needs that one show to give people a reason to find it, and for Pivot it's the new drama Fortitude, an original and visually arresting work about mysterious doings in a town in the far corner of Antarctica.

Audience Reviews for Fortitude: Season 1


Sure, the scenery is great but everything else simply fell apart in this uninteresting mystery-crime drama.
