Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 (2017)

Season 1
Marvel's Inhumans

Critics Consensus

Marvel's Inhumans sets a new low standard for the MCU with an unimaginative narrative, dull design work, weak characters, and disengaging soapy melodrama.

To make something from a Marvel concept this blithely, wonderfully and resolutely weird demands time and budget and -- maybe most of all -- commitment, and none of those three things showed up to set.

Well, at least Iwan Rheon is back where he belongs.

Inhumans is legitimately the worst Marvel adaptation of the year (yes, even beating out Iron Fist). In fact, as far as terrible Marvel adaptations go, you might have to go all the way back to Roger Corman's unreleased 1994 Fantastic Four film to best it.

[It's a] dull [slog] overall.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite special effects up the wazoo, it's utterly devoid of magic or wonder.

It has hopeful and even good points, but these derive more from the use of the "magical Marvel makeup" that surrounds all its series and movies, than from the quality of the production itself. [Full Review in Spanish]

For Marvel completists only, Inhumans is - as many had anticipated - the weakest entry in the MCU to date, across screens big and small.

Sep 4, 2017 | Full Review…

While Inhumans had some rocky points (what pilot doesn't?), there were beautiful moments that make me want to continue watching.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Finally and sadly, Inhumans lacks what all great superhero renditions must have: heart.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Perhaps, if nothing else, the disaster that is the pilot of ABC's Marvel's Inhumans will dissuade network executives from the out-of-control trend of superhero shows. Inhumans is by far the worst yet.

Sep 29, 2017 | Full Review…

The Inhumans have special powers, which makes them even more unique. [Full review in Spanish]

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Really dull, has the feel of a cheap 90s TV show and has a cast of characters that are somehow less charismatic and interesting than the mute emotionless leader they follow.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1

    Even though many people do not like this show, I really like it.

    So bad I wanted the villain to win!!

    You know you are in for a rough ride when you get rid of every persons abilities by episode 2 and your "heroes" are worse than the villains.

    Most of the reviews here were made after only seeing the first few episodes of the show, and it doesn't make sense to review a show without seeing it all. Most people don't review movies without seeing how the movie ends, so this show has been treated unfairly because of that. The show is not perfect, and it is clear that producer Scott Buck does not understand how people talk to each other. Besides that, the show was enjoyable to watch, and has a satisfying ending. The biggest downfall of the show was airing the first two episodes in IMAX. Either all of it should have been aired, or none of it. In summary, the show gets better after the first two episodes.

    Wow! Embarrassingly bad.

    Marvel's Inhumans could have been really great, but it really, REALLY isn't. I'm not really sure where to start, but it is all lacking. At best, it felt like a Saturday morning show from the early nineties. The script is maybe the worst part - it felt like a rough draft placeholder that somebody forgot to go back and rewrite. Attilan is just hokey and everything looks like it was made my a poor community theatre troupe: the sets are lame, the costumes are ridiculous, and the wigs are awful. Maximus, the villain is just another spoiled white boy expecting all the things he thinks he deserves and acting out. I spent more time horrified by the villain's pubic hair-like beard and wooden acting than worrying if he'd prevail. Maybe the acting wouldn't seem as bad if the script wasn't so ridiculous, and some the characters do start to come into their own as the short series drags on, it's not enough to save the show... or Attilan. Also, there's no way Agent Coulson is letting any of this happen unsupervised.

    I can tell you what happened in a few words, and you wouldn't have missed anything. Maximus wants to kill his brother so he can become king, But His brother traps him on the moon.

    it's ew, but in some parts okay
  • Apr 20, 2019
    Marvel's Inhumans isn't a perfect series and isn't the best of MCU, but has a very nice pace between episodes, great action scenes, excellent visual effects, beautiful production design and good performances by Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Ellen Woglom and Iwan Rheon
