Critic Reviews for Narcos Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (10)

This remains a slick, stylish delight -- a romp that is the best kind of addictive.

Sep 1, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

When so many action sequences are all quick cuts and too many edits, Narcos's more focused approach is much appreciated.

Sep 7, 2017 | Full Review…

The acting, as usual, is exceptional here, though Escobar's fall from grace, and the accompanying bodycount, makes for season so violent that it tends to numb, and drag, at times.

Jun 28, 2017 | Rating: 7.4/10 | Full Review…

The performances by Moura, Pascal and everyone else are still some of the best seen on television right now with Moura taking the cake again in the last three episodes.

Dec 31, 2016 | Full Review…

There are potent and provocative ideas that lie frustratingly dormant throughout this series, which seems to be just happy to play a competent but only occasionally compelling Michael Mann riff.

Sep 16, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Narcos continues to be as stylishly made as its first season was, but there are only so many holdalls being hurriedly stuffed full of cash, brutal murders or hushed phone calls that we really need to see.

Nov 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Season two feels much more assured in its execution than the first, partly owing to the story's shorter timeframe.

Sep 28, 2016 | Full Review…

The sad truth though is that the second season falls in line with the marketers' approach, changing the nature of the storytelling and turning it in a deeply troubling direction.

Sep 26, 2016 | Full Review…

The history-textbook feel has mostly been replaced by an uneven but ultimately satisfying procedural.

Sep 7, 2016 | Full Review…

Fans of season one will likely feel that season two is a suitably impressive step forward.But... it struggles with the difficulties of telling straightforward historical true stories within the confines of episodic television.
