Critic Reviews for M.A.N.T.I.S. Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

There is virtually nothing here that hasn't been seen before, and presented with more flair. You've seen worse, but seldom anything more pointless.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Entertaining, but lacks strong enough storylines to make it really gripping.

Jul 6, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Mantis" is funny without trying to be. The special effects are unimpressive, the action sequences hokey and the acting wooden.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

[MANTIS] is an all too serious, lethargic romp that borrows heavily from every genre imaginable.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The movie also satirizes the black middle class with its dialogue about such things as "sister(s) on the buppie tip." This is, in other words, fun for the whole family.

Jul 6, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It serves as one of the most WTF relics of superhero television, but it never failed to be entertaining in its weirdness.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

It's worth watching on its own merits.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite its brief run, "M.A.N.T.I.S." broke an impressive amount of ground.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Mantis's costume is cool, but the plots and action scenes are lukewarm at best. M.A.N.T.I.S. should be praying for better scripts.

Jul 6, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
