Critic Reviews for Power: Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

Power is the kind of show that uses f-bombs to emphasize a point, hoping to sound tough but coming off as ignorant instead.

November 15, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Power has some pull, but maybe not enough to win a tug of war. Its overall pacing could use a perk-up and its portrayals of minorities might take more heat if 50 Cent wasn't calling the shots.

Top Critic

Much of the real beauty of Power lies in the details, conversational and visual.

June 5, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The opening episode -- already posted online -- is a bit sluggish, but Power gets better in subsequent episodes. Starz, and Fitty, appear to have a winner.

Top Critic

Twisty drama has too much sex, drugs, violence for teens.

June 18, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ultimately, Power just doesn't have a good hook, and it desperately needs that to set itself apart from other crime dramas.
