Hard Sun: Season 1 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Hard Sun's heady mix of narrative and visual flourishes buckle under a surfeit of clichés that ultimately weigh it down and leave the show a muddled mess.

Critic Reviews for Hard Sun: Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (7)

To make up for the lack of substance, the cast is asked to overact.

March 7, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Where Hard Sun really gets smart is in having this existential crisis play out largely as background noise, allowing a host of other plotlines to jostle for attention.

March 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Hard Sun, it should be noted, is not subtle, or close to subtle, or even anywhere in the same continent as subtle.

March 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's almost an experiment in grafting as many clichés from this subgenre onto an admittedly original concept as possible until the whole thing, well, overheats.

March 5, 2018 | Full Review…

This shows all the signs of descending into utter preposterousness quite quickly but, for the moment, it's worth a look.

January 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

London was a chiaroscuro vision, Victorian terraces huddling under sky-piercing towers. This glossy apocalyptic thriller is so moreish that - to quote Bowie - my brain hurt like a warehouse.
