Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones Season 7

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (24)

The season premiere of Game of Thrones was thoroughly satisfying, a transporting hour that brilliantly reestablished the chessboard for the new, penultimate season.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

So far, this looks like a wonderful season for the female characters.

Jul 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones, as always, leaves us conflicted and confused. It remains a show that hates the weak, but loves its small victories. It is the most delicious of cheeseburgers, but also hard to evaluate without seeing more.

Jul 16, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Gorgeous season flawed by some serious narrative missteps. GoT is no longer bulletproof, or dragon proof.

Top Critic

Thus far, Game of Thrones has been pretty enjoyable this summer. Lots of intense action and rousing spectacle. Breathtaking dragons.

Aug 18, 2017 | Full Review…

There's a real sense that these producers have figured out how to tell this story.

The time for politics is over. The great war is here and if there was an attitude to embrace for season seven, then it was a suspended disbelief.

Jul 16, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The showrunners are wholly loosed... Free to run wild to the ultimate, constrained only by the levels of glee, cliffhangerdom, betrayal, dragonglass, mask magic, vomitus, faeces, gore and glory they feel they can reasonably stuff behind our eyeballs.

Jul 24, 2017 | Full Review…

While I found "Dragonstone" to be completely engaging, I was expecting a bit more action. It's evident the writers decided to go with the slow build. I take that to mean the remaining six episodes of this season should be quite the feast.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

At long last, Game of Thrones is back. The HBO drama opened its seventh season with an unexpected but satisfying bit of revenge and then pulled back to take the temperature of our core players.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Every single episode in this season felt like it was integral to the overall storyline and everyone felt like they were being used to their fullest potential.

Aug 20, 2018 | Full Review…

For an episode that had the narrative restriction of having to set up the new season, I have to say it balanced them well and managed to be quite compelling.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 7

  • Nov 14, 2020
    The best show ever by far, this season is one of the best despite what some people say I just wish there were more episodes !!!
  • Nov 01, 2020
    The writing is so bad, what a waste of an excellent series.
  • Oct 01, 2020
    This season's still pretty good, yet not as good as the previous ones, though. I mean, the special effects and the CGI are awesome, and the story continues to be very interesting. However, the big problem is the writting, because the relantionship between some characters is not well developed and there are a few plot holes that doesn't make sense at all. Also, the protagonism of some characters gives them handicap and it looks like forced because the script needs them, and this show is exactly the opposite of that.
  • Sep 20, 2020
    A crime against showmaking.
  • Sep 13, 2020
    Absolutely a completely horrible season that led into the worse season of any TV show ever
  • Aug 28, 2020
    This was the beginning of the race to the bottom.
  • Jul 21, 2020
    Things started feeling a bit wrong here, but it was still good and nothing to do with the disastrous season 8. Such a shame season 8 had to happen the way it did:((
  • Jul 17, 2020
    This show is lost without the books. Started feeling more like a CW show set in the GoT universe.
