Critic Reviews for Point of Honor Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (9)

A near if not total disaster, "Point of Honor" feels like watching a group of Civil War re-enactors get together and create their own false narrative.

This show is, to put it kindly, total hooey.

Point of Honor is a curiously thorough demonstration of the ways in which a refusal to think about racism is just another, slightly more subtle, form of racism.

The hour takes its most absurd turn when one soldier convinces his father to free the plantation slaves, a scene that seems both highly unlikely and calls upon its black actors to react in a dreadfully mawkish manner.

Point of Honor has ambition but lacks a driving story and three dimensional characters.

Jan 20, 2015 | Rating: 3.2/10 | Full Review…

Between the racially enlightened attitudes and the splashes of post-'60s feminism, Point of Honor turns Civil War America into a theme park.

If the perspective and historical flaws don't alienate you, the bland cast, with their buggy accents and under-produced battle scenes, will.

Feb 1, 2015 | Full Review…

The concept is so ridiculously wrongheaded that you will spend much of the running time banging your skull against the nearest wall in frustration to notice.

Feb 1, 2015 | Full Review…

The clumsy pilot mainly offers cotton-pickin' melodrama.

I miss cheesy historical miniseries as much as the next person, but in a word: No.

Audience Reviews for Point of Honor: Season 1

  • Jan 25, 2015
    The acting, direction, and overall production of the pilot only create superficial characters unfitting with the time period, and thus throw away its interesting premise in what could have been a great Civil War drama.
