Critic Reviews for Gomorrah: Season 1

Gomorrah perhaps is a more realistic depiction of the mob mentality. But I wouldn't want to break bread with any of these guys. Nor do I care what happens to them.

In this series, the mob is as elemental and unavoidable as death, whose cruel finality visits these people with grisly regularity. The characters can't shake their environment -- and once "Gomorrah" puts its hooks into you, you'll feel the same way.

For a niche audience, though, Gomorrah will be a favorite.

August 25, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The deliberate hindrance of characterization, along with the show's narrative and literal opacity, mostly makes for 12 hours of alienation. It makes you realize how dull a bird's-eye view probably is most of the time.

Gomorrah is at its finest when it's exploring the petty grudges and festering resentments that its characters on all levels -- from highly positioned gangsters to low-level bag-men -- nurture with grim unhappiness.

Gomorrah is The Sopranos on steroids, presented here in Italian with subtitles and minus any symbolism about ducks, mommy issues or a fretful therapist. Honestly, the mobsters here would think Tony was a wuss and would put a bullet between his eyes.
