Mob City: Season 1 (2013)


Critic Consensus: Frank Darabont's love letter to classic noir, Mob City sometimes feels a bit too familiar, but it's stunning to look at.

Critic Reviews for Mob City Season 1

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (28)

[It] comes across as larger than life and a little empty, maybe because the tropes it's built on are so well worn they're almost impossible to read as anything other than parody.

Viewers who decide to enjoy Mob City as it unfolds will probably appreciate it throughout, even if it doesn't build eventually to a satisfactory payoff.

I don't want to give the impression that Mob City is a great noir. It's just adequate, but adequate noir can really enliven an otherwise tedious gangster story.

It may tell an ugly tale, but Mob City is gorgeous.

Mob City at best is barely above average drama from a guy who presumably is still capable of far better.

Expect to put in some work, or at least pay close attention, if you want to appreciate Mob City.

Dec 3, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Filled with scenes of characters speaking in hushed tones over long cigarette drags in dimly lit rooms, Mob City has the film-noir style down pat.

Dec 5, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's a definite cinematic element to the show in general. A snazzy sheen to the proceedings.

Dec 5, 2013 | Rating: 7.6/10 | Full Review…

The new TV noir series Mob City looks great. Set in 1940s Los Angeles, it's darkly beautiful. And it could turn out to be a pretty great show, given a bit of time.

Dec 5, 2013 | Full Review…

Everyone and everything looks great, and both characters and storylines are suitably twisty and gritty.
