Critic Reviews for Gangs of London Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (17)

Gangs of London exists on a fully realized plane of its own, where brutality is power, death is inevitable, and even the pigeons are on cocaine. I love it. I cannot get enough of this show.

Apr 7, 2021 | Full Review…

Not for the faint hearted, Gangs of London is tough as nails and addictive as hell.

Nov 8, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

A bold continuation of the mafia movie tradition, yet like the inexperienced figures at its center, the show carves its own enthralling path.

Sep 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Gangs Of London doesn't just put bodies into the ground; it exhumes the ones in the foundations of these supposed beacons of civilization.

Apr 9, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Finch is a terrific audience surrogate, radiating the disgruntled lumpenprole badassery of Charles Bronson.

Apr 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Not for those who don't like brutal violence portrayed with gusto. But for those who can take it, the series is really an intriguing chess game about seizing power.

Apr 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Despite all our reservations, we're recommending Gangs Of London because it feels like the story is going to be relatively straightforward.

Apr 9, 2021 | Full Review…

By being one part The Departed, one part Guy Ritchie movie, and splashed with the blood of a thousand The Raids, Gangs of London ends up scratching multiple itches simultaneously.

Feb 23, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

It's very well done, but the violence, starting from the opening few minutes which made me close my eyes (a rare occurrence), makes The Sopranos look like Mary Poppins.

Feb 9, 2021 | Full Review…

It strives for a Gomorra-like bleakness... while simultaneously delving into the grotesque ultra-violence that serves no real purpose and completely annihilates any investment in the story.

Dec 9, 2020 | Rating: 5.2/10 | Full Review…

Action fans will find plenty to unpack in this no-holds-barred violent juggernaut assault to the senses.

Nov 12, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Without that heart, "Gangs of London" would just be another slickly made gangster entertainment. With it, it's one of Gareth Evans' best accomplishments of his career to date.

Audience Reviews for Gangs of London: Season 1

    Incredible show! Fantastic acting, incredible action sequences and compelling story. Can't wait for season 2!
  • 4d ago
    Awesome action fight sequences and gratuitous violence. This is more violent than The Walking Dead used to be like 6 seasons ago when it was actually still good. Usually only shows on HBO or Showtime are this violent so it is quite surprising that AMC a non-premium channel allows it. No complaints here.

    Wow just wow, the violence on show must be seen to be believed in some scenes. I have never seen anything like it. Some of the episodes are truly fantastic ,absolutely stunning and brutal, the real depiction of how bloody and violent gangs truly are.

    I've never seen such action in a film like this series, no kidding, it's one of the best series today, I'm looking forward to the second season
