Critic Reviews for Kingdom Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

An exciting horror show that paces itself wonderfully and sets up the plague zombie outbreak beautifully.

In an over-saturated sub-genre, this show takes common horror tropes and rewrites zombie rules for Joseon Korea in a way that reinvigorates my love of the sub-genre.

A magnetic series. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Kingdom's structure is engaging, if well-worn, and ultimately satisfying.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

As the epidemic widens in scope, unleashing tsunamis of sprinting zombies on the land, Kingdom turns into a mordantly funny epic about how large-scale governmental mismanagement is amplified by class inequities.

Mar 15, 2019 | Full Review…

In terms of writing, each of the main characters is entirely nondescript at best, a fatal flaw for any television show.

Feb 6, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Kingdom is a better zombie drama for a few reasons, but primarily because it ratchets up the horror aspects of its undead.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Kingdom does right by its genre and adds some nightmarish imagery and surprises to set itself apart from the many like it. Netflix has another quality series on its international front.

Jan 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Kingdom dares to show that zombies aren't just a 20th and 21st-century phenomenon, and we applaud that kind of creative storytelling.
