Ozark: Season 1 (2017)



Critic Consensus: Ozark hasn't yet reached the same level as the classic crime dramas to which it will inevitably be compared, but its satisfyingly complex plot - and a gripping performance from Jason Bateman - suggest greater potential.

Critic Reviews for Ozark Season 1

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (24)

Dubuque quickly gives us a strong ensemble of city folk and hicks, innocents and thugs. The overall vibe of the show is suspenseful, but there are small pockets of comedy usually found in the behavior of the locals.

Bateman, better known for comedies such as Arrested Development, unleashes a frank blue stare that could mean anything from menace to guile to idiocy. His lack of readability keeps things fresh and unpredictable as nasty shocks unfold.

Ozark has the potential to be many interesting things, and the fact that it commits to none of them feels like overextension.

Bateman strikes the right mixture of guilt, terror and glib intelligence to make us reluctantly root for him.

Whilst Ozark does at times take the platform format for granted... it offers an intriguing narrative that expertly intertwines the lives of numerous characters.

It's a fun show that almost relishes its familiarity. Like a comfy chair, you can sink into the comfort here watch a few episodes without thinking too much.

Just when you think it can't get any darker or disturbing, Ozark rips the rug from underneath you.

This drama has an approach that sounds hackneyed, but shows the necessary quality to become one of the summer's capped series. [Full Review in Spanish]
