Audience Reviews for Katla: Season 1

  • 5h ago
    The landscape is haunting by itself, and the story that slowly unfolds is held with utmost care and just allows a little creeping dread in here and there, but it's by God effective.

    Katla is filmed in an environment (Iceland) that is completely unfamiliar to most American viewers, and accordingly it also plumbs a topic that is equally unfamiliar to most people's screens—the void left in us when a loved one dies or changes unexpectedly due to serious illness. The method it uses to expose these holes is indirect. It uses a mysterious volcanic eruption to bring the holes back to life in human form as golems or "changelings". The changelings are initially a source of confusion, until the characters realize that the changelings offer a reflection back onto the protagonists' condition. Watching the devastation on the face of one character upon seeing this reflection at the end of episode 7 was one of the most moving pieces of cinema I've ever seen.

    Great visuals and a story that expands from the dubious to the mythical. Want to see where this one goes!

    Gripping story, amazing setting.
  • 2d ago
    Thoroughly enjoyable slow-burn tale with an excellent combination of well-written story, phenomenal cinematography and solid characters. A welcome change from the overwrought, noisy spectacle of most American television.

    I would so much rather subtitles than terrible voice overs it take any believability out of the series and makes it unwatchable

    Great show. Love the setting, seems other-worldly. The suspense is very cool as well.

    Uninvited guests with unknown origins presents residents of Vik with a series of difficult questions on morality, intentions, faith and purpose. Story discuss the ever debatable role of an intermediary or the outsider who gets to see what's missing. That same intermediary who may exploit or indeed solve an issue but at what price? Best thing is this show explores the gray area between science and fiction while maintaining it's delicacy. The show's setup indicating the grief,hardship and remoteness speaks directly to the viewer. It's visuals is transfixing. Acting is realistic and amplify the complexity of the situation.

    Such a thrilling show! From start to finish the plot leaves you guessing on who the big bad really is. The action was phenomenal and the casting was great. I can't wait for season 2.
  • Jul 18, 2021
    Photography is great, music is good, acting is great compared to the characters. The characters are a selfish group of flawed folks with tremendous trust issues. I want to keep watching to see if the plot will pick up the pace and give us a story with some actual writing and direction. What's the use when the only strong character is a boy doppelganger who's a slasher that should be named Jason.
