Critic reviews for Nice Face

Women are almost always afterthoughts in stories like these: They exist to be the hero's love interest, to serve as the killer's victim. Here they are neither, and Killing Eve subsequently feels like a revelation as a result.

And with that, before a word of dialogue has been uttered, Killing Eve gives us a villain worth watching.

A pilot has to do an awful lot of work. A viewer needs to know some very basic facts about what and who they're watching... Killing Eve tells us exactly who our main characters are in the first ten minutes of the show.

The board is set. The pieces feel different. I'm dying to know the next move.
