Critic Reviews for Legends Season 1

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (19)

Watching Sean Bean in his new TNT series, Legends, is like watching Michael Phelps in a kiddie pool.

Aug 13, 2014 | Full Review…

Martin [Sean Bean] has some kinship to Jack Bauer, which isn't surprising, since 24 creator Howard Gordon is one of the producers. But he's got his own troubles, and at least up front they make for some engaging television.

Aug 13, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The idea of multiple or false identities is promising for all sorts of reasons.

Top Critic

[Sean] Bean, who this time is assured of staying vertical, might have enough pop in his performance to break on through. His various identity crises -- on the job and off -- make him a nowhere man worth watching.

Top Critic

Legends with Sean Bean is a show, that, like Josh Holloway's CBS series Intelligence last season, should work but doesn't due to a lack of imagination and daring.

Aug 12, 2014 | Full Review…

The series works best as sort of a modern-day Mission: Impossible.

Aug 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The capers are so predictable in the early going that, when the ubiquitous Zeljko Ivanek shows up as a militia leader, you can't help but roll your eyes, itching for Martin [Sean Bean] to get back to the mystery of who he is.

Aug 13, 2014 | Full Review…

Legends opens with Martin wrapping up a six-month assignment, but after that, the structure seems to be for him to assume and discard identities in rapid order in a way that removes much of the intrigue and emotional danger of the premise.

Aug 13, 2014 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Darker and less escapist than TNT's other new summer entry, The Last Ship, Legends offers a down-and-dirty hero with rough edges but surrounds him with a cadre of cleaner, less sullied colleagues, making for somewhat of a tonal mish-mash.

Aug 12, 2014 | Full Review…

It's a pleasure to watch Bean fall into his "legends," or fake identities, even as the show pushes the boundaries of what TV audiences might accept when it comes to instantaneous computer heroics.

Aug 11, 2014 | Full Review…

The lurching plot turns are preposterous. The supporting characters are thinly drawn. The structure is terribly disjointed. And the dialogue ranges from ham-fisted to stilted.

Aug 7, 2014 | Full Review…

Deaths, guns, violence and deception in disappointing drama.
