Critic Reviews for Outcry Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Timely and haunting, if far from perfect.

Jul 20, 2020 | Full Review…

"Outcry" failed to get interviews with some of its more culpable key players, but the series more than makes up for it with its deeper profile of Kelley himself, who is not always his own best advocate

Jul 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Outcry is completely effective at stoking our indignation. And if episodes three through five feel like they're repetitive, I think it's intentional - to simulate the protracted timeline of frustration experienced by Kelley.

Jul 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The series would have profited handsomely from cutting. Outcry is, nevertheless, an immensely moving piece of history.

Jun 25, 2020 | Full Review…

[I]ts structure and pacing are pitch-perfect. However, its singular focus feels almost myopic, creating a failure of the system while not really showing the system at all.

Jul 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Like a lot of true crime miniseries it seems a little slow going (it takes ten minutes to establish that high school football is popular in Texas). But there are some strong personalities and a compelling underlying story.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Outcry has the potential to be a really complex, layered story about the Greg Kelley case.

Jul 6, 2020 | Full Review…

...even those with full knowledge of the incident may find themselves fascinated by director Pat Kondelis's exploration of the attendant controversies...

Audience Reviews for Outcry: Season 1

    the damage an incompetent system can do. though there are massive signs of corruption and malintent .. possibly tied to the rest of child molestation cases in the world

    Pat Kondelis and his team did an outstanding job telling our story. It was messy, frustrating, disappointing but ultimately rewarding. Outcry takes you on that Journey it invokes the same feelings we experienced in the order we experienced them in.

    It's a gripping documentary. Always on the edge of your seat as to whether he is guilty or not. It will have you asking questions about our legal system. But it also brings up the case of child abuse and that's a touchy subject of course, but it shows how a child may be coerced into a false confession. In this case they didn't even show any of the children Greg's photo. Definitely a good watch. I think it raises a lot of questions about our laws and the system , that's why I love it.

    "Outcry" will keep the audience on its toes, while at once cultivating a sense of dread and optimism. This is not only one of the best true crime genre series in its class but one of the best documentaries of 2020.
  • Jul 09, 2020
    This show illuminates how incompetence can derail lives. It airs some information about policing and the justice system that is both useful and compelling given the current climate. Highly recommend.
