Critic Reviews for Ragnarok Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

It moves quickly, but Ragnarok's biggest problem is that it keeps stumbling into Twilight-style storytelling, alternating dour and portentous drama with unintentionally comical interludes.

Top Critic

At six episodes, it doesn't overstay its welcome, but it's also pretty middling in its modernized drama about the Norse mythology of the battle between gods and giants.

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Just six episodes long, Ragnarok is a low-effort choice for fans of supernatural teen TV, but don't expect any complex storytelling, or a particularly clever twist on familiar Norse mythology.

Feb 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Despite being a bit over the top, this series is surprisingly entertaining, and manages to be so while consistently delivering strong pro-environmentalist messages.

Feb 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ragnarok also shows a surprising amount of zest. It is at its unabashed best when it leans into its weirdness.

Feb 14, 2020 | Full Review…

Has a fairly shaky grip on its tone, but the YA drama works well in tandem with its smart adaptation of Norse myth, even if it doesn't quite stick the landing in the end.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Ragnarok should be on every supernatural movie fan's playlist. Not the story you think, and that is the best thing about this enormously entertaining take on a contemporary battle of the Norse gods and their adversaries.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 9.1/10 | Full Review…

The inevitable final confrontation ends up being disappointing and anticlimactic. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 7, 2020 | Full Review…

A novel approach to the usual Norse legend story, and should be fun to watch.

Audience Reviews for Ragnarok: Season 1

    This was one of the best Netflix shows I have ever watched. Netflix has come out with mediocre shows recently but with this title I love clicking on this app and looking forward to watch ragnarok. The main character played his part perfectly. The setting was amazing and the acting was A+ I would very much recommend.

    Made it through an episode and a half before losing any and all interest. Boring take on a take on Norse and the twilight genre. Pathetic cast going through the motions. We must have every segment of the youth angst represented, so it is socially relevant. What is missed is a believable coherent story. Porported social relevancy has nothing to do with a story telling if the story teller is only trying to pander to the social aspects and not the quality of the story.

    The general idea is fantastic, the cast is really great and the setting is really cool. However Season 1 suffers from being a bit too predictable, cliche (especially some of the high school aspects of it), and the pacing is very off. It's either going nowhere for half an episode or a thunderstorm brews up in 8 minutes. There's a lot of potential here and I hope with Season 1's success, Season 2 can get a bigger budget which makes it feel grander and fixes the sometimes obvious plot convenience issues. Great season, would reccommend. (7.8/10).

    I enjoyed the show. I am looking forward to season 2

    Ragnarok is compelling, mysterious, and sends a wonderfully needed message today: greed and destruction of our natural environment will catch up to us, eventually. Interwoven is the modern take on classic Norse mythology. The characters are very easy to love, or to loath. While perhaps not as polished as some other shows, it is a great adventure to watch! Highly recommend it!

    Holy shit, this should be deleted of Netflix, don't lose your time watching to it. Read a book, watch a movie, run some miles, but don't fucking watch to it

    Corporations are parasitic leeches on society run by monsters and also this kid is Thor.

    I was skeptical at first but it turn out to be great. And the screener, whew, just that is worth the watch.

    Put all the American teen clichés in a norwegian show and call it a good idea.. said no one. Everything pretty much feels awkward, especially the conversations. If the target group is norwegians above the age of 16 (as it says on Netflix), they failed at some point.

    Awesome modern take on Norse mythology. Unsurprisingly, there are a number of negative ratings from the "critics" , however, as is usually the case, the proletariat love it !! 🤣 I have seen a couple of Scandinavian tv series and what I really like about both productions is the non hyped manner in which they do it... so in the process, movie making and story telling achieves a nice balance. The attractive thing about this series is the principal characters brooding, mysterious and dark, blend in with the beautiful and mysterious surroundings. The supporting characters reflect what a lot of "normal" folks might be like in a small neglected town: awkward, shy, confused, quirky...the range of characters that humans come in. No unnecessary proliferation of tongue-in-cheek one liners like in many current productions.... especially American ones, no overload of special-effects gimmickry... just whats needed (unlike for example, the meaningless violence in the mega hit GOT, or, unending stupid fight sequences in many super hero movies). And all the while, the norse mythology is being reinterpreted in the context of the actual challenges that earth and its many inhabitants, human or otherwise face at this point in time. This really makes the mythical characters come to life and very relevant to our experiences. In a way, the writers are employing powerful archetypes of the collective human psyche to interpret our collective experience and what better way to do that than borrowing from the great myths of the past !! Thanks to Netflix for renewing this show. Please stream more Scandinavian productions like this on Netflix !
