Critic Reviews for Heroes Season 4

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

The fourth season of Heroes ended not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a collective synchronized shrug.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Ideas so ill-conceived and poorly executed, you'd think the show was written by committee and the writers had given up-really been phonin' it in there for quite some time.

Top Critic

Once again, then, an error-riddled and confusingly-plotted episode of Heroes where everyone acted out of character, which, by this point, can be considered entirely consistent with their previous appearances.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe I'm coming off a little harsh, but after so many years of mediocre storytelling and promises of things being better, I'm over it.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

With the fourth and final season going back to basics, as well as injecting some much needed warmth and depth into several previously underdeveloped characters, Heroes definitely went out with a bang.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 4 was not the rebirth of Heroes, but it improved the series enough to prove that there is still a lot of potential.

Jul 13, 2018 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

It's legitimately incomprehensible that the show's producers have jobs.

Audience Reviews for Heroes: Season 4

    Season 4 of Heroes was a nightmare with a ridiculous turn of events and a huge lack of intrigue from the story.

    This season was rudderless, just veering from plot line to plot line without any sense of purpose. A vague threat and no real big bad until the final few episodes, and many of the Heroes forced to act out of character to drive the plot. As per usual it is up to Hiro and Peter to make this season even watchable.
  • Nov 11, 2019
    I truly enjoyed the conclusion that was season 4 of Heroes. Although all good things must come to an end, they left this franchise without a disappointing cop-out of an ending.
  • Apr 29, 2019
    A surprising improvement after the trainwreck that was season 3, the fourth season of Heroes scores points for its back-to-basics approach, getting characterizations back on track after they basically became hopeless, introducing new characters who mostly aren't obnoxious, poorly written characters wasting actors' potentials and a lighter tone. For once, they don't have to worry about any bad futures. Season 4 still has problems, though. The villain is the worst one, ratings stunts abound (Claire is bisexual even though there were no hints that she was ever attracted to the fairer sex), the ending despite being a surprisingly good spot to end the series even though it wasn't meant to be as it got cancelled three months later has the show's trademark idiocy returning full force (the premise of Reborn doesn't help) and being too late. To specify, this was the closest we were going to get to a return to form as the damage Season 3 inflicted had already been done and as a result, although there are more good episodes than bad episodes, its just barely. Still don't regret seeing Season 4, however.

    They did an excellent job tidying things up from last season and moving the plot forward. Very enjoyable with not very many eye-rolling moments.
  • Dec 08, 2015
    I thought all seasons were great. I'm sad the show was cancelled
  • Aug 17, 2015
    Heroes in reality and they do nothing with the concept for one episode, let alone an entire season or seasons. Just streeeetch every reveal out and introduce each character each episode. Not all of them are worth spending time with.
  • May 04, 2015
    The final season of Heroes is very overlooked because it almost comes across as too goofy for its own good, but if a show is to end on this season - it works. There's a good enough villain, mixed with the "circus troupe' concept which allows really unique powers to emerge. Identities are regained, truths come out, and closure is found. It ends on almost the perfect note, allowing the series to end or continue.

    I didnt like this series at all it just got stupid at this point
  • Aug 02, 2014
    this show was amazing and then they had to go and cancel it on us they left us with nothing just a giant cliff hanger that leaves us all here wondering what the hell happened how are they going to survive that it is completely unfair and should be illegal this great show got canceled because the idiot producers or whoever wouldn't give these AMAZING producers the raise they clearly deserved!!!!
