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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

Jun 9, 2014 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

Power is fine but it doesn't live up to its title. It's not a powerful drama because viewers have largely seen all its tricks, plots and character relationships before.

Starz's new mob drama Power, from producer and rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, clicks with the elements of a mob drama but never gets to crackling.

If this sounds like your idea of a summer entertainment, by all means dig in; you will not be disappointed.

Jun 12, 2014 | Full Review…

The writing and the acting are not memorable, the visual acumen isn't impressive and we haven't even got to Jackson's turn as an actor (which will need to be more memorable than his baseball skills if Power is going to get noticed).
