Critic Reviews for 401 Unauthorized

Despite some especially try-hard dialogue and obnoxious aesthetic choices, Mr. Robot has rediscovered its emotional core by clarifying and reestablishing the connection between Elliot's actions and the people whom he's trying to avenge or save.

Written and directed by the series's creator, Sam Esmail, the fourth and final season premiere of "Mr. Robot" plays to all the show's strengths and none of its weaknesses.

The entirety of "401 Unauthorized" is an extended heart attack. It's a perfect conspiracy thriller that sees Mr. Robot assuring us that this final season is going to reckon with everything that came before and that nothing will ever be the same.

"Unauthorized..." [is] a thrilling return to the espionage-thriller excitement that drove much of the first season.

The changes in Elliot's demeanour, mindset, and approach have a corresponding effect on Mr. Robot's visual and aural language as well.

An incredibly intense opener for Season 4. Plenty of intrigue to chew on.

This premiere is a harsh reminder of Mr. Robot's brilliance and its incessant need to burn the world we love to the ground one episode at a time.

"Unauthorized..." blends some of the best and worst elements of Mr. Robot together to create an episode that feels nonstop while it's all happening, but leaves you feeling hollow afterward.

"Unauthorized" was a perfect way to set up the last-ever season.
