Critic Reviews for McMafia Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (13)

[James] Norton plays Alex with such committed blankness that his rare outbursts of emotion are almost humorous.

No matter how you feel about "McMafia" as a title, it does illustrate what's wrong with the show itself: If it were a McDonalds product, it would be an Egg McMuffin. Bland but filling, it's a breakfast sandwich sans any discernible flavor

It's beautifully bleak all the way.

Feb 22, 2018 | Full Review…

I think McMafia's slick tedium is born of the fact the series has no heart: character and plot are everything in a series like this - no one's seriously interested in how a bloke might get large amounts of cash invisibly from A to B.

Jan 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Its desperation to be slick, exciting and high-brow has resulted in a show that's also insincere, pretentious and unnecessarily difficult to follow.

Jan 18, 2018 | Full Review…

McMafia is certainly slick. But as an expose of international organized money laundering, I fear it's too dense to be the sexy thriller of 2018 that everyone so wants it to be.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

As the show insists, there really isn't that much glamour at the top, just cold-hearted pragmatism, and cold it is - in each and every frame.

Jan 15, 2019 | Full Review…

For many, this may seem redundant, but the commitment to showcasing the mafia's spread in the age of globalization gives the show an important angle.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It is not a failure, and its slick look convincingly creates a world for its story, but to survive in the current TV landscape, it needs to stop being like its main character and take more of a walk on the wild side.

Sometimes it was mad, occasionally it was bad, but in the end I came to love McMafia.
